    I have a Red Dragon sending up a flower stalk right now. I think that it's a male. We can wait and see, let me know if you're interested! Never know, could get some dark Truncata looking thing!!
    I don't want EVERY Sarracenia, just everyone that I see!!

    I say male, but hell, I've never even had a nep flower before ;D. Congratulations!
    So far people on the east coast are saying male, people on the west coast are saying female.

    I'm in the male camp. The side view of the lower bud looks round to me. I've got a couple of females in bloom right now = sib x vent - red giant and alata giant. It'll probably be too late when yours blooms, but I may have something else by then. Are you open to conjugal visits?

    Thanks for the input and the comments everyone! I am hoping it's a female as well, however there seems to be some dissent. The picture is a few days old, so next time i head to the greenhouse I will take some more pics. As soon as I know for sure, and get those other pics, I would definitely be interested in any pollen someone is willing to send me. I can either trade cuttings for the pollen, or some of the seeds it produces.

    Hey Steve! If it is indeed male, I would definitely like to take you up on your offers. Any cross is fine for me, since this will be my first time. Perhaps I can pick your brain for advice as well.

    Thanks again everyone! (I'll definitely try to share as much of the seed as possible with those that are interested. I have a bunch of other flowers spiking, and it seems that at any time of the year, something is blooming, so hopefully I can share with everyone that is interested.)
    - Daniel
