    Could I give pollen from different species to one stamen( female flower) each? Meaning, I could have seed of one hybrid, and seed of another hybrid, growing on different flowers on the same flower stalk of a female nepenthes.

    that would be hard to keep track of which flowers has what coming from it. i would keep a small tag on each flower to remember what is in it. even if it is possible to do.

    Sure you can pollinate different flowers with different pollen. You can get little tags with string from stationery stores to hang on the flower.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    So on one female plant, I could have ,like , the seeds of ten different hybrids growing? How cool is that ! Some day, I'm plan on making a well know cultivar .

    As most flower spikes on Nepenthes are very large it is more than possible to do 20 different crosses on the one plant . I saw a flower spike with at least that many . It was over 2feet tall , and every few inches there was a tag stuck on it with the cross done below . As it flowers from the bottom up , there is plenty of time to collect pollen from your plants and plan the crosses ahead .
