    Miranda is sterile, so you're not going to get any viable seeds from this one. Sorry!

    The pollen is sterile? Or are you referring to the dioecious nature of Nepenthes, so you can't get seeds out of a male plant?

    I was under the impression that, for the most part, Nepenthes have pretty similar chromosome count, and are fairly compatible with each other, meaning hybrids create fertile gametes.
