    N.spectabilis pollen available!

    Hey peeps, I have flowers starting to open on my male N.spectabilis "North sumatra" and am looking for those with female neps to do a 50/50 seed split. First priority goes to female spectabilis, but other than that, my preference is to make primary hybrids with other species. I will consider hybrids is nothing else comes up. PM me if you have anything, thanks.

    The actual plant in flower
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Based on the pics you've posted, it appears you have the North sumatra clone as well, and it's a single clone that is male.

    There are multiple bloom spikes from this female Nepenthes here at the NCSU greenhouses. It's an unknown maxima hybrid. If you want to make the cross let me know!

    What form of ventricosa? I maybe be interested, someone else has one in bloom too and I may send pollen to him as well.

    Also, Mason, that hybrid almost looks like it could be smilesii x maxima or something, which is ironic, because I just made this cross, and the seedlings grow faster than any nep I have ever seen. I might send ya some pollen it I have enough to go around.

    Exo. Idk the origin of my plant. Was in major distress when I got it. Hand written tag. Maybe I can do some research. But no worries if it is male. I'm sure I'll have plenty of females. I know I have a flava female. And a few others confirmed females.
