    I have a female ventricosa. She just gave birth, but has several climbing stems so maybe she will bloom again. I know my guys seem to send up new flower stalks after the old ones are spent. (But then again, those are guys). I heard stressing them may cause them to bloom. What can I tell her to cause stress? "Your mother-in-law is coming to visit"

    lol. iono whats up with all the camps blooming lately. maybe it has to do with the time of year?

    i'm gonna find out how to store the pollen, and when your female flowers again PLEASE tell me because i'd like to cross it with ventricosa. you'd get to keep half the seed!

    OK, she is getting more direct sun, so maybe that will entice her to bloom. I also thought about taking some cuttings as I heard that they will sometimes bloom after that, (plus I get more clones of her). Does anyone know how soon after setting seed a Nep can bloom again. I will post a pic of her in another thread.

    My female N. campanulata is sending out it's second flower spike for this season. However, it might take a while for the flowers to mature and open (probably two weeks). Is it possible to store pollen in the refrigerator for use later?

    Pollen can be stored in foil packets, frozen up to 1 year for later use. It is esp. helpful to remove most all of the moisture from it, be sure it is dry, yet viable pollen.
