    Nice flower Mach, I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope that the flowering overlaps at least for some time!

    Paul, I don't think this guy is ready to be tied down just yet. I mean he did just hit puberty!

    Lets hope the flowering overlaps...The flower looks like it's almost finished extending but the buds will still have to separate out...
    Crossing my fingers on this one

    I think it is time to cool down the female & warm up the male!
    Temps can sometimes slow down or speed up a plants metabolism in this way,
    as can longer light periods & maybe get them more in sync.
    If nothing else, perhaps you could show the male some pictures of some female Nep plants & flowers,
    to get him in the mood!


    I know the liklihood of the light period affecting the plant in such short a time at this point is 'zilch',
    but I would try anything I could! Even praying or positive thinking wouldn't hurt!
    Actually, covering the plant with a plastic bag might increase the heat & humidity enough to make a difference,
    if cool temps are slowing things down.

    Good luck kids!
    And here I bought cigars & pink booties already! Bummer!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
