Apparently I was right about my N. x 'Melvino' flowering. I got it in June and it just opened up a new leaf revealing a thick flower stalk. It is a boy. The problem is that my N. ventricosa x talangensis is close to opening. My N. ventrata is also starting to open the lower flowers which is weird because the flower stalk didn't even appear until a few days after the N. ventricosa x talangensis' flower stalk.
My N. ventricosa flower stalk has been swelling for about 30 days.
My N. ventrata flower stalk has been swelling for about 15 days.
My N. x 'Melvino' flower stalk has been swelling since... IDK. I knew it was there weeks before it opened because I could see it in there. So you could say it is a few weeks along? Not sure... It is pretty thick-looking to me already.

Is there any chance that I'd be able to pollinate the females with the male that is just now opening? Or is it highly unlikely?
