Dear Plant-Ed Folks,

    I am interested in your experiences in germinating pollen of 
different species.  What readily available species have pollen that 
germinates easily?  I have a recipe for a germination solution that I 
got from a colleague but would be interested in any others you know 
work well.  Has anyone had success disrupting or enhancing the 
formation of the pollen tube with various compounds?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.
