    Wonderful to see this.

    Could you please share your protocol to generate pollen tubes from pollen – so others here can repeat this experiment. Please share the protocol with. All the details.

    Would be great fun to watch the tips grow live.

      Dear Sir,

      We have tried the protocol for testing pollen features of 23 plants, 4 for viability and 4 for pollen tube. The protocol was successful only for Periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus). Our attempts to see the growth continuously with time lapse was not successful so far. It would be a great pleasure for us to provide you the protocol once we optimise it.

      Thanks for encouragement through responding to the post.

      With regards
