    Nepenthes in bloom

    Hello about a week ago i noticed my nepenthes x edinensis had a spike forming and was wondering if anyone knew if it was male or female or maybe you cant tell yet. But heres some pictures. Thanks

    Looks male. A closeup would confirm.
    Post a picture of the pitcher as well...chances are it might not be edinensis.

    Are you growing that plant inside? What direction does that window face?

    If its flowering, chances are his/her conditions are OK and he is giving at least and adequate amount of sun. Probably just a cloudy day.

    I wasn't implying anything by asking those questions. Just curious!

    looks female to me

    The window is facing east but is really strong light all day. Its been growing in that window for about 10 months or so as well as a ventrata is next to it. I entered it in the philly flower show in march and it won a ribbon and even then it was vining and all. So i got some closeup pictures for ya's to look at. I got as close as i can without the camera blurring. Im pretty sure it is edinensis as it came from a guy at fredrick mejer gardens about 5 years ago.
