Anyone know where I can buy pollen tubes? My blossoms are bursting and I'm collecting pollen for my hybridizing program. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
This place has them for $1 a dz. I've never bought from them and I'm sure you can find more vendors online and on Ebay. You have to look up pollen storage tubes, not just pollen tubes.
Here is a link that might be useful: pollen storage tubes
BGI has them.
If you want to purchase them in bulk eBay is a good source. 500 will cost you about $10 plus shipping. If you watch for deals you will find them much cheaper than that.
Look for either 1.5 or 2.0ml centrifuge tubes.
iBrugs will also have them for sale starting next week when our seed and pollen banks go live.
I purchased mine through BGI I believe...
