    Hi gang--My plea for pollen a month ago met with no success, but I lucked out...another nepenthes I had that was blooming at the same time turned out to be a male. I've got seed setting now for a new cross: Nepenthes xSavannah Rose X (ventricosa x xiphoides). Should be interesting. Problem now is that I have two more plants sending out female flowers and I am out of pollen. I have a N. khasiana and a N. ventricosa that should be prime for pollinating for the next week or so. Anyone providing pollen will split any resultant seed. Email me direct if you've got anything to offer. Oz

    Hey oz!

    I'm sure that lots of ppl here would send you pollen in a heartbeat, but It just appears that very few actually have flowering neps at the moment. I know that I would send you pollen if I had any... but all of my plants are too young. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I just hope that my plants will be do something next year so that I can send you some pollen!

    Take care.

    Want some of my Rajah's pollen? [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] You'll have to wait another year at least if anyone does want some! :biggrin: Sorry though man, no flowering Neps. YET, but soon I think Truncata and Ventricosa should do so.

    Oz,

    I have a few things in bloom at the moment. N. maxima male plants should be opening soon. N. x leesii is also blooming and a male plant. I will get pollen off to you soon. Several of my female ventricosas are blooming at the moment. I will check and see if any male ventricosas are blooming. Several more neps should be blooming shortly.
