    Flowering N. burkei

    My N. burkei just revealed its first flower spike. This is the true Borneo Exotics burkei from Halcon (BE-3254), and I'm hoping some other folks have mature ones in cultivation at or near the flowering stage. If not, I'm thinking this plant could also make some killer hybrids.

    I only have crappy cell phone pics right now, but I'll update with better ones as the spike matures and I get an idea of the sex.

    Maybe it's just me... but I always think of the male inflorescence as looking like a cluster of tiny penises...

    It's absolutely thriving. It has another pitcher that size, and is working on 2 or 3 more. I'm considering removing a couple of the developing pitchers just so it doesn't flower itself to death.

    I don't think you'll have to worry about it flowering to the point of exhaustion. We have a N. khasiana at Meadowview that has about 6 flowers on it and it's not slowing down.

    What are you're conditions? I call dibs if you ever to any cuttings.

    Seriously that's awesome yours flowered! How large are the pitchers on a flowering size plant?

    I wonder if any of BE's N. burkei clones are female?

    Unheated greenhouse. Check the weather in the 94019 ZIP, add 10-15F during the day due to greenhouse, and those are my conditions.

    I'll keep you in mind if I take any cuttings or pull basals. If you're just looking for a burkei, I have quite a few BE size smalls that I would be willing to trade. There are only 5 clones in the batch, so 20% chance it's this exact plant, and I haven't seen much variation among them to begin with.

    They're 8-9". Better pics to come.
