    I've been sitting here jealously over the last 4-5 months while those of you in the northern hemisphere enjoyed showing of your flowers through Spring, Summer, and Autumn.

    Well at last my plants have acknowledged that winter is over.

    2x flowers this week. One on a large N. ventricosa and the other (only just showing itself) on a N. albomarginata x veitchii.

    N. ventricosa:




    N. albomarginata x veitchii:


    I don't know what sex the Vent is as yet but am told the hybrid (only had it a month) is male.

    Aaron.

    Congrats Aron! Hey if they are of oposite sex you could cross them and produce seed if all goes well,I don`t think that cross has been made before. Good luck![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    DUDE! You got a female Ventricosa! That totally rocks! I've never seen a female one before, but I've seen 5 clones that are boys. I bet you could find someone with a boy and get purebred seed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Yea but Darcie why get purebred of a very common plant when you could get a hybrid that would likely be much more desireble both to the person creating the hybrid and people he trades\sells\gives away to in the future. Oh. and Srduggins definately had a female ventricosa.
