    Hi,

    Well, I've been meaning to post a few things for a while,
    and thought now would be a good time.

    First of all, I've had a lot of things flower this year, including
    NN. lowii, aristolochioides, maxima, lowii x veitchii, spathulata,
    and so forth, but nothing is quite as exciting as this: N. northiana and N. hamata in flower!

    Here is a picture of the N. northiana inflorescence. The twist tie
    in the photo reminds me which flowers I've already pollinated.



    This is a closeup shot of a couple of the flowers:



    Here is a shot of the N. hamata inflorescence. It is clearly
    a long way from flowering yet, but I believe it is male.



    I have already made several interesting crosses, including
    lowii x spathulata, lowii x northiana, aristolochioides x spathulata,
    and aristolochioides x northiana. And, the hamata
    pollen promises to allow for even more interesting crosses
    in the future....

    I intend to provide some of these seeds to TC labs so that
    these hybrids will hopefully become available to everyone
    who wants them.

    Jeff,

    This is a silly question, as a lot of us are living vicariously through you, lol.
    Anyway, a lot of people have noticed things like the same species flower at the same time each year, and when it happens, ALL the specimens of that species they have flower. Have you noticed anything like this when your plants flower? There is probably not one thing that will make all species flower at once(there would be nothing but hybrids if that happened in the wild), but it would be cool if we could figure out how to make one species flower, than another, ect.
    Thanks for the pics.
    Regards,

    Joe

    Hi Joe,

    No, that's not a silly question. What I've observed is that
    my Nepenthes tend to flower in spring, regardless of species.
    However, this does not mean that any species flowers
    with regularity, nor have I observed different specimens of the
    same species to flower at the same time.

    Neps, do you also maintain an outdoor greenhouse? How would the neps know it is spring if they live in the basement?
