    Thats too cool. I can't wait till I can do that someday. Right now I only have one Nepenthes so I can't do it yet. But once I get my greenhouse built and get more there won't be any stopping me.

    I would imagine that the chance of having a female and a male flowering at the same time and being a different type of Nep. would be pretty hard if you only had a few plants though.

    In general, do they flower at the same time or is it all over the board?

    Sort of all over the board. Species tend to bloom all at the same time, say you have five different mature plants of bicalcarata. They will tend to all flower about the same time-if they flower. Some individual plants can be reluctant bloomers, others bloom several times a year. Some Neps may bloom very consistently at a certain time of the year, every year. Others may bloom almost randomly.
    However, there do seem to be a set of conditions that favors making them flower.

    Anyone tried crossing one of the more delicate species to a hardier one...like say...

    gracilis x hamata

    ventrata x rafflesiana

    I think these 2 would be interesting...or you could switch them around.
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Drosera capensis

    They do that all the time! One of my favorites is my N. ventricosa x aristolochioides. It looks cool and grows like a weed.
