    Hi Pat, and welcome to the forum!

    What kind of Paph pollen are you interested in? Coryo or other?

    Okie, so now the pollen is not available on this plant... the flower dropped off (like a Phrag.), and now I can't find the flower to store the pollen for later... fell off on my porch, and now I can't find it ANYWHERE! =(

    Are you still looking for pollen, or was it for the praestans?

    I am still looking for pollen, just can't cross with my Paph. praestans... as of now, I am looking for Paph. rothschildianum (I know, it's an odd time for this one to be blooming, stored pollen?), P. phillipinense, P. armeniacum, P. micranthum, or P. barbigerum (or related species)...

    Thanks for any help! =)

    I might have old philippinense alba, as in from 4/06. this is from a superior strain of the species. not sure how useful it is in breeding unless one were to cross it to alba Maudiae-types...although I suppose if one crossed it to a nice dark roth and then selfed the seedlings in the hope of alba St. Swithin...or better yet sandy and alba MK. wishful thinking perhaps.
