    Exclamation Need pollen for a Nepenthes ventricosa x campanulata 'Menehune' thats in bloom

    My Nepenthes ventricosa x campanulata 'Menehune' has started to put up flowers.
    The flower spike appears to be female.

    I'm looking for any Nepenthes pollen that might be available right now so that I can try and pollinate the flowers.

    Feel free to post if your interested and i can give you address to send the pollen. I plant of course to share the seeds produced, I have very little space to grow so i plan on giving out the majority of them.

    What kind of hybrid do you want to make?? I always have males in bloom, but not all of them are going to be good mates for yours.

    I am not particularly picky on hybrids, It really depends on how many people respond with pollen. I understand pollen is something that you only have whats available to work with, and I plan to do what I can with whats available.

    I plan on trying to pollinate a small set of flowers with however many donors respond, which I figure will be a reasonably small amount. If only one responds, then I will pollinate them all with whatever pollen is available.

    As for my preference, it would be another N. campanulata hybrid.
    I'm somewhat excited about being able to make an interesting cross, and I figure just about any new cross with be interesting in one way or another.

    I have pollen of (inermis x singalana) x mira, x mixta, and 'Miranda' available. At least the first should pair really well, the latter two might make interesting results too.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    2 PM's sent. Thanks for the response everyone.

    Wow, crossing it with N. (inermis x singalana) would probably be a a cool looking cross.

    If you're interested, please send me a PM. What I have is: N. platychila, N. tenuis, N. ventricosa x inermis, and N. inermis. I know the platy and ventrinermis are viable, but it's the first time tenuis and inermis have bloomed for me so it might be a craps shoot.

    I think (ventxcamp) x inertia would be a wonderful hybrid!
