    Any nepenthes lookin' for love?

    I bought a large ventricosa bush over the winter and noticed that some flowers were thinking of popping out. No pitchers, but there were flowers. Well, light has picked up so the plant seems to be picking up the pace a bit and it has FOUR flowers forming at this time.

    I am not sure of the gender, but I am quite confident that I would not be lucky enough to stumble upon a female at a greenhouse (especially not one this...um..."ready"). I wanted to start putting out feelers now to see if anyone had some gals that were showing signs of flowering in the event that this guy is indeed a guy.

    Personally I think this would be a great mix. I'd love to see more genetic variation floating around with ventricosa's. They are amazing hard / showy neps, and some of the other varieties out there that are just amazing. We're just flooded with the clones at the moment.

    Hybrids are fun and great, but if we had more variety of the same species to pick from as the basic building blocks, we could do a better job. 8)

    I agree with Nate. New hybrids are always exciting, and we could always use more genetic variety. I say go for it! (connect 4) [Anybody remember that commercial?]

    It appears my ventricosa is a boy ! I can't remember where it came from, jimscott ? Will try to get a pic posted tonight for you all. I'd be happy to collect and send off some pollen too.

    ok I think I have a female vent going on here. Come on lets get some species seeds here!

    I need some pictures of female flowers because I have only seen males.

    Ya, I think a vent. x vent. would be a great thing. You never know if it will be better then any hybrid cross could have been.

    i say do some both. HOWEVER! neither are my plants, so i have no say in any matter. But some 'cosa hybrids and species would be nice in my opinion
