    Is this sanguinea orange male or female?

    My sanguinea orange is flowering and I don't have experience in Nep flower ID.
    Can anyone help me out?
    I will be looking to get seed or pollen from this if possible.

    The flowers aren't open? Looks like a female, though.

    Congrats there Zero, you have a female.

    Even though the flowers haven't yet opened, female flower buds are oblong ovals, while the unopened male flowers are little round balls...usually.

    I've got ventricosa and ventricosa x inermis pollen at the moment. My N. talangensis popped a hilariously small flower stalk recently and I'm hoping it's a girl... But I've got three huge male stalks from the aforementioned plants so there's more than enough to share.
    I'll agree, it looks female to me too - but I'm pretty green so far as Nep breeding goes.

    It's a girl.

    I can't ever forget what one person on CPUK said: "Females are shaped like rugby balls while males are shaped more like spheres."

    I have only orchid pollen ATM.
