    If it's a female, I have some N. thorelii x aristolochioides pollen that I can send you. I think that backcrossing N. aristolochioides back into an N. aristolochioides hybrid would result in something that resembles N. aristolochioides but has the vigor of a hybrid. Let me know if interested as I do have several other people who are interested in the pollen as well.

    I think that if it is possible to make N. aristolochioides x hamata that it should be a crime to not do so!

    Hi guys,

    Its nice to see soo much feedback. Let me try to answer all questions:

    Origin: This plant originated from Borneo exotics. So clearly if this is a female, there is a female plant in the set of random clones

    Size of plant: It is currently 3' tall. The plant stopped making pitchers months ago as it is now sprouting a node as it reached the top of the tank. But overall, it is a healthy specimen.

    @Adi, I will get you guys a picture tomorrow. Today its already 2:30 AM...need to remove all plants to reach it without damaging other plants.

    Thanks for the pollen offers guys. I wouldn't mind an N. aristolochioides and N. hamata hybrid either. However, first dibs will go for N. aristolochioides species. I really want to get some of these species seed in cultivation. I know there aren't too many flowers, but I'll try giving multi-parent crossing on each flower. I'll keep ya guys psted as the flower opens. Should probably prepare the pollen soon. Any idea of time frame when the flowers will start opening + how to know if the flower is mature?

    thanks,

    varun

    WOW!!!! That is one amazing N. aristolochioides. Man how I wish I was able to trade you for a cutting of Her/him. I'm hoping that you have a Female there. Great job growing there.

    Thanks Nep101. I do hope too its a female. I am actually excited to see if I can get some seed out of this affair. It used to pitcher very often underneath that last pitcher it made, but since then it stopped. I think it was mostly because of the weather as summer truly took a toll on many of my plants. Well...here's hoping for a great winter/spring.

    If it's a female, I'd love to see it crossed back to this guy:



    Hopefully the end result would be even MORE N. aristolochioides -like and have the vigorous habit of the N. thorelii x aristolochioides and hopefully larger pitchers than just pure N. aristolochioides.
