she's ready for your lovin!
My N. ventrata flowers have begun to open and have revealed themselves to be female. it actually sent out two spikes simultaneously, so in any case, I'm open to two donors.
If anyone would like to send me some pollen to breed with my female ventrata, PM me. I'll take the first two donors, and i will be sure to mark the flower stalks. when seed is created, i'll send you a majority of it and keep a bit for myself (there should be hundreds).
Any breed of nepenthes is fine, who knows what we'll come up with. no guarantees on viable seed though.
If you're not sure how to harvest pollen, search the boards, or just ask me in a PM, i'll be happy to help.
if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

Man, your timing is bad! I had a male doing its thing in February. Congrats, though!
If it's a tc ventrata it is most likely sterile.
