    Unhappy

    I have a N.truncata in flower. Its a boy. Can anyone give me some tips on how to collect the pollen? If there is anyone out there who would like to cross let me know.

    P.S.
    N.ventricosa is about to flower also!

    Thanks

    The easiest way I found was to hold a sheet of paper or tin foil under the flowers and gently tap the base of the spike. The pollen has to be ripe of course for this to work. Good luck!
