    Looking for nepenthes pollen

    Hi. I have a female N. ventrata x alata flowering and was curious if anyone had any extra pollen. Split the seeds 50/50, of course. Thanks!

    All I've got is N. ventricosa "red", so it would be almost like remaking the original ventrata, but still might get some variation.....

    Do these look like pollination was successful?

    Looks like it. Those appear a lot longer than they were when the flowers opened, so either the pollination was a success or we've got one of those rare fakers out there.

    Looks like you have a male Miranda, just like mine. I've heard the males are sterile, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.....
    And the seed pods are looking great!
