    Izumiae x Truncata flower, female?

    I would like to try my hand at producing some Nepenthes seed, and I was wondering if I could get a confirmation on this Izumiae x Truncata. I used to cut all my flower stalks off because I didn't have the space/time for seeds, but now I wish to give it a shot. If this is in fact female, I should have some males in bloom but I may be willing to trade for some pollen if someone is interested. Anyhoo, I have also included a couple random pics that I took recently. Thanks in advance for the help .



    Some pitchers off the plant, though these are lighter uppers.


    Talangensis x Veitchii




    Ventricosa x TM (couldn't get a decent pic, but this pitcher is huge).


    A random pic of a Ventricosa x Ephipiata settling in nicely. I had this plant on the bottom rack and some maxsea fertilizer washed into the pot from the plants above and this thing is doing great. It really helped the live LFS explode and the plant looks happy.

    - Daniel

    Fantastic Daniel! Sure looks female to me. Good luck and keep us posted. I hope I can trade for some seed with you - I should have some seed of my own coming up soon.

    Looks male to me ;>

    It's either that or I just want to be different!
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Fantastic plants Daniel. Wow!!! EP truly makes some wicked choices for hybrids. Although I would like to see them propogate some of their stock for species seed grown.
