    N. truncata pollen for 50/50 split on seed

    Hi, I have two flower spikes coming in on my N. truncata and am looking for suitable recipients. The spikes are just forming, so it will probably be at least a month before pollen is ready, but I figure it is best to arrange a match as early as possible. I am not terribly picky about the match, so let me know if you have anything! I would ask for 50/50 split on any seeds. Thanks!

    My ventricosa x spathulata is sending up another stalk, looks healthy enough that I may be able to pull seeds this time, and I would bet the 'Rokko' Exotica flowers again in a short while. Also expecting a N. gracilis to send up its first flower, so don't know what the sex is but there's a chance it's female....

    I think the Rokko would be my preference (though with the amount of pollen I should get, there should be plenty to go around). I can send you a PM when the flowers are closer to opening if you'd like.

    What kind of Truncata is this? Lowland or pasian?

    You know, that is a great question...I am not entirely sure, as I am afraid I don't exactly know the difference and it wasn't labeled one way or the other. It seems to do well next to the amps and bicals, but I haven't really moved it around much. I can post a picture of it if that helps.

    I would love to see a picture. However, I can already tell this is a lowlander. Congrats on the flowers

    That works.

    Sorry for the delay, got a little busy yesterday. Anyways here are a few recent photos of this plant, which is doing quite well, aside from sorely needing to be re-potted.






    And the seedlings I have from the last time it flowered, N. truncata x maxima "mini"
