    First Nepenthes Flower Ever! Male or Female?

    The Nepenthes Ramispina I recently received just flowered! Having no experience with Nepenthes flowers before this, I don't know if it's male or female (but statistically I know it is most likely male). What do you all think?

    Either way, I'm willing to trade pollen with someone.

    It's a bit early but I would agree that it is likely male. Statistically, males are more common . . . .

    No, it's in a greenhouse. I just don't mind them that much. I'll take it off if it ruins too much of the beauty of the plant, but right now this Ramispina doesn't have too much of that; it's basically a vine with no fully-developed pitchers right now.
