    Lady Ventricosa in the mood

    Hi guys.

    My first nepenthes ever finally decided to stop being so stuborn and flower. Im 80% it's a girl, but i will know for sure in a few days. She's (should i say "it's"?) about 2-4 weeks from being ready, 2 with a little luck and 4 with some hate from God. Im looking for interesting guys too. Especially complex crosses, truncata's, or anything else remotely interesting, but then again, beggars cant be choosers.

    Let me know!

    Can you take a picture of the female flower? I have a vent taht is floweing and I think it is a female. The only flower I have seen is a male flower on my Truncata and it is blooming right now BTW with flowers open. I have been trying to trade pollen for a week or two.

    Just store it in a foil packet and put it in the fridge. I think it will keep for a few months.

    Don't put it just in a foil packet. Shake the pollen onto wax paper and wait 24 hrs for it to try. Fold it up, then wrap it in aluminum foil, then put it in the refrigerator
