Dear netter:

Until now, several messages were sent to me. Unfortunately, 
every messages express the same problem on rate of pollen germination which is almost no more than 30%. It seemed no 
one knows a suitable medium to increase the germination rate
of pollens of Arabidopsis, so far. ........ We need some ideas.
Thank you.
