Eric,Now I have to go back and open the flowers. Won't that let mold spores in?
I really like the gelatin caps. When I stored in something more porous the pollen got so dry that after a year I couldn't get it to stick to the stigma, even after wetting with water.The best is to remove the "hard" part of the pollen and keep only the sticky-gooey part. That way, you can store it much longer ( up to 5 years). Some people store it in parmaceutical gelatin caps, available in many stores in the USA.
