    Nepenthes flower ???

    Do all the species of nepenthes flowers stink to high heaven?? My truncata is starting to open its flowers and about 4 or 5 flowers are open already and GAWD do they stink to high heaven! I about gagged when I opened the GH door. I could smell it outside when walking up to it. I didn't know what was stinking at first then I put my nose up to the flower and got a big whiff. DAYM!!!!!! I would hate to smell the stench when the entire spike is open. It smells like a dirty musty smell. Hard to explian. I was just wondering if other species or hybrids smell as bad.

    Also I have only gotten one reply about the pollen. I may be contacting him, but it is a ventrata. I was hoping to cross it with another species or optimaly another truncata. I just noticed my ventrata flowering as well, but it is a small spike so I will not need all the pollen for it. So just in case there are others out there that missed the pollen thread in the trade section is there any other female nepenthes blooming

    This looks like a good idea:

    There is a sticky topic that points to an international pollen trading agency type of thing.

    The flowers of N. x 'Judith Finn' and N. x 'Gentle' did not seem bad at all when they flowered for me. Then again, I also grow A. konjac.
