    Hey All, good news!

    my truncata x ventricosa is sending up a spike. I just noticed today, and it's already about 4" along with a dense pack of buds. Don't know the sex - I think it's a bit early to tell, but I'm really excited. This is only my second time to have a nep flower, and the first one was a flop. So this time I really hope that I can get some seeds.

    I think if it's round it's a male, if it's oblong it's a female.

    If it is female I have a male N. veitchii in spike at the moment if you would like some pollen.

    Hi gang,

    well, the buds look somewhat oblong ( I knew already to look for this trait)....and they're densly packed (don't know if that means anything). Time will tell, time will tell...

    Dang! How tall is the flower going to get, anyway? It's about to hit the lights....May have to "train" the spike a little to avoid crispiness...

    Jeese, what's the sex already [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] ! Hay, if it's a female, let some people know so good hybrids can be made. If you want, if it's a female, I'll send you one of these darn flower stalks off my maxima hybrid [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] !
