    Wow! I just noticed that one of my female ventricosa cuttings has put out a spike and is about to flower!

    LOL!

    Don't worry, it will get longer and bigger.

    I think Nepenthes pollen can be preserved by freezing.

    That's what they all say.

    I guess I'll see if anyone wants ventricosa pollen. Its not a "hottie" as neps go, but maybe someone would want a cross.

    Yeah, Pak, having a male ventricosa is not much of a draw, is it? I think every species of nep has already been mixed with vent. Oh, well. Still rewarding to know you've grow the plant well enough for it to flower - but then again, it IS a male. Females need a reason to flower, males just need a place.

    My N. x 'Miranda' is in flower again... I'll try to remember the camera next time I go to the green house.

    I showed you mine...you show me yours. Get that camera!

    Sounds like several people have flowering neps now. Maybe I should check my others.

    Here are pics of mine, although I don't have a closeup view. Can anyone discern male or female or is it too far away?
