    Looking for Nep pollen

    I have a female ventrata with 6+ flower spikes currently. I have a bit of truncata pollen I will use, but am looking for other matches. I know it may not be an overly desirable hybrid choice, but if you have pollen going to waste let me know. 50/50 on any seed. Thanks!

    If this is the common N. x ventrata, I wouldn't use any pollen. They're basically sterile.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I am uncertain as to the origin of the plant, so I can't tell if it is the sterile clone or not. From what I could find online, it is fairly hit or miss, with some people having no luck at all, while others get a fairly normal seed set. That's part of why I asked for "pollen going to waste". Figured the worst that could happen is a stamp gets used, and I waste a few minutes pollinating.
