    Once again, I was lucky enough to get a spare N. maxima "Gentle" seeds to trade. I have about about 20-30 seeds (I got 3 seed pods) and I'm looking for seeds of Mexican butterworts, or any tropical CP except D. capensis narrow form.
    Please PM me if you are interested.
    Thanks.
    Boo!

    er Not sure what you mean here... N. maxima is not N. Gentle

    Did someone give you these pods or did you have a N. Gentle flower with female flowers?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    What I know is that N. "gentle" is a cultivar of N. maxima.
    I got these last year in Korea, I saw mother plants along with flowers and pods. Just to make sure, here's an link to a picture.

    1. From what I can tell Gentle isn't a registered cultivar.

    2. The plants refered to as N. x Gentle or N. "Gentle" or N. 'Gentle' are most likely N. fusca x maxima, there was another theory on the parents, wasn't able to find it off hand.

    3. THe picture looks like the plants going by N. x Gentle

    Are you sure that it was not pollinated with pollen from another species/hybrid?

    Gawd_oOo, I checked out the pic. posted in google and and it looked like N. maxima "gentle" except it's less spotted.

    CP2k, I'm sure that it wasn't pollinated with pollen from another species/hybrid. The place I got these seeds had only N. maxima "gentle' in their greenhouse.

    N. Gentle is not a cultivar of N. maxima. N. Gentle is produced by Deroose nursery in the netherlands and is a tissuecultured hybrid grown by the thousands and thousands. Most likely it is N. fusca x maxima but Deroose will not devulge the parentage on any of their hybrids.


    Couple points:
    1. Nepenthes seed is quite short lived and should be planted asap.
    2. It takes a male and a female plant to make viable Nepenthes seed. Female plants will flower and form seed pods but unless they are pollinated by a male plant the seed will not contain any embryos capable of germinating.

    Not sure if this link will work..
