    Female N. ventricosa x talangensis Seeking Pollen!

    This opened within the last week, just noticed it today (the leaf opened facing away from me)... Guess I better start the pollen search now to maximize my options lol.



    I got this N. ventricosa x talangensis in December of 2011 as my first Nepenthes. The pitchers are funnel/cone-shaped to an extent. The plant was producing 3-4" pitchers until recently and now it is producing near 6" pitchers. You can see the full plant in this video, just wait a few seconds for it to get started, it's the first thing I talk about...



    I'm open to anything interesting, but I definitely don't want something like N. ventricosa x (ventricosa x talangensis)... N. talangensis x (ventricosa x talangensis) would be pretty sweet, and I'd love to get some spectabilis pollen if it is available. But if you have some pollen, be sure to let me know! 50/50 seed split as usual.

    Thanks for looking!

    I have a spathulata x spectabilis that I'm collecting pollen from right now if you'd like some. I have a few tentative pollen-trades going on right now but I think I'll have some leftover.
    Too weird to live, too rare to die.

    asdfghjkl; my least favorite species crossed with my favorite species... I'm torn. From the pics I've seen that might be okay. Thanks for the offer! Let me know when you know for sure you'll have enough left over to pollinate about 35-40 flowers.

    hcarlton, I'll keep that in mind if I can't find any other pollen. I just don't want a really pointless hybrid lol.

    Oh, there's no such thing as a pointless hybrid . Though if you do find pollen like spectabilis or similar, I'd definitely go with that, but there can be potential in anything.

    EP has made that cross with their red ventricosa and it is definitely not pointless!
