    Nepenthes Hybrids

    Are Nep Hybrids sterile or will they produce flowers with male/female parts?

    Thanks

    the beauty of neps, like sarracenia, is that they can cross and cross and cross and cross! there is no limit to the possibilities! only a few clones of neps are sterile. like the Deroose ventrata, miranda and a few others. but in general they arent sterile.

    but from your context i think you are trying to ask if they are self fertile. no. because they are only one gender. PK is doing some kinda work with gender switching. dunno how that is going though.

    Waiting for this one flower to finish developing, then writing a short article about it. Don't think it worked this time around. I need to change the solvent I think.
