    Exclamation Male N. spectabilis x ventricosa flowering

    I have a N. spectabilis x ventricosa that is flowering and haven't a clue what to do with the thing. Anyone have a female who wants to guide me through the process? Happy to do a half seed trade.

    Just added pics of the first pitcher which ironically just opened during flowering. The pics are in the original post.

    So wait until all the flowers open or tap them one by one as they open? Put it in wax paper and then in the fridge?

    No, by the time the flowers on the upper part of the stalk opens the pollen on the lower flowers will be gone/not viable. When the pollen is ready to be harvested (a day or two after opening) it will freely fall into aluminum foil or wax paper. It can be stored in the refrigerator in this fashion for a few weeks to a few months, perhaps longer. From what I've read, no studies have been conducted to see exactly how long pollen can be stored. I also believe it can be frozen for up to a year. Don't quote me on that though.

    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?
