    My Female Nepenthes Tenuis and her Future Mate

    Hello all. Just thought you all would enjoy some pics of My 2 Nepenthes Tenuis plants. One is a definite Female and the other is Un known I'm sure the other one is a male Though as its from Tissue Culture. Seems that most everything from TC comes out a Boy.

    I'll be keeping everyone here posted when I breed these 2 together and have some pure Tenuis species seed available.

    Thanks Matt. I'll probably be keeping this species a pure one for a while till I can distribute pure species seed more to others here.

    When I do make some Tenuis seed, I'll be giving everyone up here seed who wants some. I was kinda thinking of pollinating the single Tenuis female flower with some Truncata x Veitchii H/L pollen though just to experiment with. Would be interesting to see how the first known Tenuis Hybrid turns out.
    I'm a bit worried though if I pollinated her that it may stress her out some, slowing her growth and rooting down some. Its funny to, shes like on her 5th leaf, going on 6th since I received her as an un rooted cutting.

    They get fed pretty well. I mist them Regularly every night with rainwater mixed with superthrive to give them their Vitamins, etc....
