    I know there was one other person on the forum here who had the same thing happen, the "Lady" turned out to actually be female. I believe it was Upwhiz.
    If you need pollen fast, I have plenty of N. ventricosa "red" pollen, boring parent, but maybe some cool variation might arise....

    I won't mind trying it on a couple flowers. Fire away.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    My N. miranda is about to flower again (known male), but it will probably be at least 2 week until pollen development...

    I have also heard mixed stories on whether or not the pollen is viable (not sterile). Some seem to say they have successfully used it in pollinating, other say it is sterile... anyone else have more input?

    There are different clones of N. Miranda in existence. The widely distributed clone from Deroose is believed to be a polyploid & is thus sterile.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I have N. maxima-dark x talangensis flowering way in the tippy top of my greenhouse....
    Should start opening soon I think. If your flower is long, I may be able to get you some before it's done. If you wanna get something that looks similar. LOL

    Andrew, I'd love some pollen. If the timing doesn't work for the first inflorescence, I can pollinate a couple flowers on the second one. The first one is somewhat long, I have to keep moving it out of the lights.

    Everyone that shares gets 50/50, naturally. I love to share.
