    please, please, PLEASE cross with my male campanulata! you can keep 50 percent of the seed. a N. x rokko X campanulata cross is better than my pollen going to waste!

    It's pity there wasn't a female hamata in flower at the same time, species seed is so much more valuable than hybrid stuff. There should be some aristolochioides seed floating around as I know several people with both male and female plants that have been flowering.

    If anyone has a female of that species soon to bloom, please
    let me know. My male is getting ready to bloom (for the third
    time in two years)!

    BTW, your plants look very nice, Dustin. Thanks for sharing
    them with us. I am especially pleased to see that the N. maxima
    and N. villosa are doing well for you. Is the N. villosa the one
    I sent you?

    Jeff,

    There's someone here in Sydney with a female aristo in flower. I'll drop him a line and get him to contact you.

    Hey folks,

    Josh, yes Tony's was male too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    JLAP, I may be able to do that to a few flowers. I have been collecting hamata pollen daily on a piece of clear plastic and smearing the female spike in it to ensure good pollination. A few have yet to open and should accept some pollen from another doner. (Its interesting to have multiple crosses going on 1 spike! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] )

    Hamish, tell me about it! Tony and I were praying mine would be a girl. Unfortunately, no. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Jeff, glad to hear that on your N. aristolochioides. I think mine may need to be repotted as it doesn't pitcher well...I believe it is something in the TC material that may have genetic defectrs in it (Tony lead me to also think this). It may just need a new pot though. The N. maxima is an absolute winderful clone and I am truely pleased to be priveleged to have it! The N. villosa is surprising me actually, it is not too difficult to grow, has increased in size quite rapidly and looks totally different, now that it is growing larger and more mature. Tony's looks identical to mine except his has larger pitchers! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    How is your brute doing? Last I saw it, it was a marvelous pitcher adorned with many teeth on the peristome.

    My guess is that your N. aristolochioides is probably not receiving
    the kind of overnight cooling it needs. I've found that that species
    typically likes temperatures lower than 10 C at night.
