    Female Maxima Sending Up a Flower Spike

    So a maxima cutting I received a few months ago has been doing quite well and is sending out a flower stalk. The leaf just started unfurling to show it. This is only my second flower, so I don't exactly how long it should take to be ready for pollen.
    If anyone has any male flowers that might overlap, just post here or PM me!
    Happy to do a seed split (I'll give most of my share away on here probably!) and am not too picky about the crosses!
    Happy Growing,
    Kyle

    I can get pollen from N. veitchii 'K' and 'Red Dragon' in the next few weeks.

    I still have ventricosa pollen I can send. A remake of 'Red Leopard' might be interesting!
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I have an N.smilesii that has a stalk in the works, and there are no hybrids with smilesii as far as I know, maxima would be a perfect fit!
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
