    Well, you can probably do both pure- bred and hybrid if all the opportunities present themselves.
    Personally, an army of N. campanulata with new genetic variability(well, as far as the 24 clones of Malesiana can take it) seems more lucrative to me. A hamata hybrid also seems promising....

    Cheers,

    Joe

    after i first noticed the flower stalk on my 'Miranda' it took about 1.5 to 2 weeks for the first open flower. i cut the first stalk off and sent it to Pyro, i think he still has it sitting in a glass of water just to see what happens. i do have a second stalk flowering now. let me know if you are interested in pollen. or anyone else who is interested PM me cause ill prolly just cut the stalk off in the next week or 2 to save stress on my plant if no one is interested.

    Looks like only a couple flowers are going to open. The rest look like they are not going to develop (but I could be wrong). Female flowers should be pollenated soon after opening.. ie a few days or so. So best to have pollen ready. I can't tell which yours will be. The buds on both sexes of N. campanulata are very similar. Rough estimate?? hmm another week or 2 before they open..

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    'K guys, I'll keep everyone posted...I'll take more pics as thing develope.

    I'm leaning towards making a hybrid if there's only a few flowers, mostly because I already have the species, but also because I find hybrids easier to grow. Camps are just so flimsy!

    Caps, maxima could be cool, especially considering the uppers on a maxima....Hmmmmm....

    I am surprised we have not seen more seed floating around of campanulata and hybrids. There are 24 supposedly random clones that mature quickly and that have been around for years.
    Keep us posted, schloaty.

    PS Does anyone know where my avatar went?

    oh c'mon, it DOES look like an evil asparagus of death! i wouldn't eat it though..

    Dave S. has sone Judith Finn pollen, if your is a female you might be interested in that.

    an easy plant would be camp. x gracilis, but i've never seen gracilis pollen offered, wierd.

    How exciting! That looks really different to me. Very long for having no flowers open yet.

    I have a dark red tobaica starting to flower. I'm not sure what
    sex it is. This is its first flower and seems shorter than other
    Nep flowers I have seen. I'm thinking it is probably male. First
    flower should open soon.

    srduggins: if yours turns out to be female there seems to be several ppl with pollen. i have Miranda and someone posted in the trade forum that they have pollen from a veitchii hybrid. i believe there are a few more male plants in bloom yet from other members.
