    Male N. Predator Pollen

    I have a male N. Predator that will be in flower soon.

    Looking for any females out there to make some interesting crosses with.

    Awesome! How close are you to flowering? I expect the first flowers will open by Monday.

    probably a week or two away from the flower being out of the leaf......but i can store the pollen in the freezer, and will more than likely still be viable for my girl

    Not IN flower yet, but I have a veitchii 'Barrio' which has a flower spike. I should be able to catch the end of your flower just as mine are starting. PM me if interested. The Barrio clone has a very wide peristome suffused with oranges and reds with very tubby pitchers:

    First pollen balls have formed. I have already collected a few, but I should have 10-12 collected come Monday.

    I have already contacted those who have females in flower. Anybody else have a female out there flowering soon?

    So far it looks like my definate crosses are...
    spectabilis x (truncata x hamata)
    veitchii x (truncata x hamata)
    veitchii barrio x (truncata x hamata)

    Will be ecstatic if I get just one mature plant from any of these crosses!
