    N.ventricosa pollen available (Lookin' for a lady)

    Anyone looking for some ventricosa pollen ? I must say that it doesn't have an appealing smell to me so if no one wants it the spike is gonna go. There's another thread with pics but I gotta find it to add the link.

    Ok guys, I'm becoming unpopular in the house because of the rather unpleasant odor coming from this male Nep. Yes I'm blaming the flower. I'll give it a couple of days and then collect some and refrigerate. So in theory it should be around and available till the end of June ?? We'll see how long it lasts.

    Pollen lasts a while if stored properly. You might want to consult:

    pages 23-29 (I think) of the March 2006 CPN:
    Tropical Pitcher Plant (Nepenthes: Nepenthaceae) Pollen Germinability and Storage: Conservation Implications, by James Cokendolpher

    But then again, it's only a ventricosa, and unless its a superior form like K or porcelain, there's not too much of a point in saving it. Seems like everyone's vents are flowering now.
