    I have a female and would like a male N. khasiana. Will trade cuttings or have many other plants available. PM me if you have a male in the USA.

    My female is flowering again. No one has offered a male. Are there no male plants of this species in cultivation? I am still willing to trade or what do you want?

    I have a big plant thats a few feet long but has refused to flower in the few years I have had it ;/ sooo can't help you there.

    I gather most of the plants in cultivation are female based on my observation that you often see posts on forums about people looking for pollen for their N. khasiana. I don't recall seeing anyone offering N. khasiana pollen. You could try a search of the cpdigest archives though.. maybe something will turn up.

    huh? Where did you get that from?

    Aside from the fact you can't use any kind of ratio for plants which have been in cultivation and distributed via cuttings for the past 20 years..

    I'm guessing the ration is more like 7 male:3 female. It is a common thing for pollen donors looking for owners of female plants, but not the other way around...

    Ok so let me get this straight.. you guys figure the sex ratio in Nepenthes is 7 male to 3 female. And your basing this on the highly scientific study of how many posts you see of people looking for pollen vs those with pollen to give away.

    ok so what if only one plant had been brought into cultivation and everyone has that single plant only? I guess the ratio would be 10:0? What if 2 plants of opposite sex are in cultivation but after 20 years of making cuttings 7 people have clone a while 3 people have clone b. Does this make the ratio 7:3 when it started at 1:1?

    As far as I am aware no study has been done to determine the normal percentage male:female. If there has and I missed it.. please enlighten me as to where.
