    N. spectabilis x ventricosa

    I had an interesting discovery today. My N. spectabilis x ventricosa from the NASC auction is blooming (thanks Av!). This will be my first flower. As you can see, the plant itself is huge. I was getting ready to chop it up (space issues) when I discovered I had a pest issue. I don't believe that plant was infected, but I treated it anyway to be sure. I guess something good did come out of it; it postponed me cutting it. Is it too soon to tell if it's male or female?

    The plant starts in the blue pot.

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Thanks Av!

    I was worried about the pretty drastic change in temperature from your conditions to mine. Apparently it doesn't care.
