    W have a male N. northiana coming into bloom that we want to match up with a female. Please PM me if you have one, or know someone who has. No hybrid offers please, we can do plenty of those with existing females, we want to make species seed.

    Good luck I hope you can find a serigate! Species are cool. Its a wonder how these plants manage to find a species partner in the wild. Interesting.

    I think many grow in the same place. There are fields of northiana in sarawak.

    Hi,
    If it's flowering I suppose it is a very large plant. And that's quite rare for N. northiana. Any suggestion about how to grow it: in particular, any special fertilizing or soil mix? Anything you have noticed that makes its cultivation different from the other species ?? Any photo? thanks!

    I have a female which has flowered before. If you can send
    me some pollen, and if it arrives in a viable state, I will freeze
    it and use it to create seeds the next time my plant flowers.
    You will, of course, receive fifty percent of any seeds so produced.
