    Nepenthes boschiana Pollen Available Soon

    I have an inflorescence starting on my male N.boschiana, pollen should be ready to harvest in about a month. I would prefer that the pollen be used on a female N.boschiana or to make potentially interesting primary hybrids. Standard 50/50 split on all seeds produced.

    I will bump this thread as the pollen gets closer to being ready.

    Well, I'm a bit disappointed. My female N. boschiana blooms frequently, so I went out and took a look. Unfortunately, there is only one inflorescence, and it's too far along.

    The first flowers should be open in the next week or so. Since you have females, maybe I should just dry the pollen and send it to you. You can just pop it in the freezer until you need it.

    Sounds like a plan...

    Cool. I'll give you a heads up and grab your address when it's ready.
