    Hello again! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I was wondering if when you have Nepenthes hybrid, if there is a protocol to name those hybrids. I mean, when you see the crosses like thorelii x aristolochioides, or thorelii x maxima, or gracilis x rafflesiana, etc. Is there a protocol so I can know which parent was the male or which one was the female?

    Does the male name come first or is it the female, or there is no protocol and/or way to know this? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    If I have a male ventricosa and a female sanguinea and I crossed them, which name should I place first when I classify the new seedlings produced by this cross? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Any help?

    Cheers,

    It's always female x male. Whoever gives the seed is always the female, so if you cross a male ventricosa and a female sanguinea, it will be called N.sanguinea x ventricosa
