    N. campanulata flowering - male or female?

    The plant puts out a flower stalk after every 2-3 leaves. I am tired of cutting it and decided to let the flower stalk grow larger.

    I read here that the flower buds are atypical in shape compared to other Neps. They look male at the moment. Anyone interested in pollen? Or is there anyone has got the species flowering too? Or stored pollen (if this happens to be a female)?

    Here is how they look like.

    Hi,

    and congrats on the coming flowers. At this stage I would agree with you that it is male, but I would give it bit more time to be sure. From what I have seen male inflorescences have more flowers, like yours...so this could be another indication that it is male. Sadly my female is not in flower at this time.

    Regards,

    Christer

    Hmm.... that's too hard to tell(for me). It looks like a male,but according to this picture: http://www.necps.org/images/20041009...SchloatPic.jpg , it could be female. That female flower is most nearly the same shape as yours.

    Either way it's incredible you have a flowering campanulata! It must be really happy!

    The flower stalk is to young to tell if it's a male or female.
    It'll be easier if you post a pic when they open.
    And I'll tell you, thats teriffic! And I'm going to do it again! Maybe I'll even do it three or four times! Why? Because I like it!

    as Chirster said....campanulata flowers look very similar or same to eachother. the only way to know is when it open.
