    In addition, this is the first Nep bloom I've seen with literally one flower - very unlike the pics people regularly show with flowers all over the stalk.

    Unlike the comments I periodically see from Nepenthes conspiracy folks, there appear to be many more females of this species than males. In my search, I've found a few females that are even in flower now (or very soon).

    I have searched & searched some more but have only located one reference to a male plant (& I've followed up w/ PMs). If you can re-locate this info (or any other info on males) let me know.

    If anyone knows of a male, I am currently in the process of air-layering a hamata & a jamban - would be very interested in a trade ...

    Dang good luck on finding that pollen and congrats on having a female in bloom, even if it's small.

    Heli - the reason to make more seed grown aristolochioides would be so that less people buy from the scum on the ebay that poach this species.

    I've checked everywhere that I know. If someone is aware of a male - please PM or email me (doesn't have to be in bloom). Here's a pic of the flower:

    I wish you luck in your pollen search. Are those leaves surrounding the one flower or are they flowers too?
