    YAY! Female N thorelli X campunalata flower NEED POLLEN ASAP

    Turns out that one of my christmas presents arrived a little too early...My new Female thorelli X campunalata was supposed to arrive at christmas, but a mistake was made. Boy, to look back at it now I should have ordered earlier!

    Anyway, today Ive been having some horrible neck pains that I can't even decsribe, but I hoped that they would pay off...and they did!! I found a female Thorelli X Campunalata at home that has a flower stalk on it!! (it has about 25 pods)

    Now, I desperatly need some pollen asap before this thing flowers (50/50 seed split from pollen).
    Anyone got some interesting males?

    The pitchers have browned a bit during transit and since im in so much pain heres some pics from google search...simply amazing!! http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&g...w=1280&bih=628

    Also, anyone have any suggestions as to what conditions I should put this thing in since it is flowering? I was thinking lowland...but I suck at finding lowlander highlander status. Ill email the plants owner to find out the light conditions..etc.

    Heres a pic of the flower stalk

    Photobucket

    Hard to get a better pic from the pain...but ya know what they say, in some cases there must be pain for glory... it's funny how all day I was hoping that my crokked neck would pay off

    Oh, and BTW, this is my first female flower!!! (its a miracle that the flower stalk survived)

    So, got any pollen?

    Aw, I had a male N. thorellii x campanulata, even had a flower last year around this time but it got rust disease this last summer so I separated it from my other plants and put it out on the patio and it died.

    I'm sure one of our multiple males Neps at Meadowview should be in flower right now. I'll ask Phil tomorrow. I'm sure the N. x mixta will be flowering again soon.

    Thanks!

    Anyone else that has pollen there is still room left on the flower stalk...the 30+ flowers should make a ton of seeds

    I know I had a flower coming, not sure where it stands right now... but I can check the status of the flower if this interests you, pretty sure pollen should be ready at this point... Not current pics, but same plant... N. rafflesiana http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=124029
