    Hey everyone, here is a slightly better pic of the scape on my camp. I'm inclined to say female, but I need more experienced oppinions.

    Oh, and another question for anyone with older camps....Do they have a tendency to form basal shoots some distance from the main stem? Mine is making two shoots that almost look like they're coming from runners [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] . I was just wondering if this is normal behaviour.

    edit: Image deleted....sorry!

    Possible it's female but still real hard to make out yet.

    The basal shoots are probably just coming from some buried stem. They don't make runners or anything like that.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Tony, I guess that could be....But I never burried any stem. Certainly not all the way over at the edge of the pot....Weird. If I remember, I'll take a picture of it.

    I would hazard a guess and say that it is probably a male. This is based on my observation that the spike looks different from mine, which is a female. Of course, I may be totally wrong having not seen a male inflorescence of Nep. campanulata before. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Looks female to me. Not squashed flat enough to be a male I PERSONALLY think.

    Update: Campanulata is female. I pollenated the first open flower last night with ventricosa 'red' pollen from Jeremiah.

    SWEET!
