    I am happy to announce that another of my N. lowii is in bloom, and even more exciting is the fact that it is a female! This plant is from G. Mulu, a bit less common than the variety from G. Trus Madi.

    Currently, the inflorescence is growing out, and no flowers have yet opened. However, I would like to solicit pollen from other growers now for a share of any seeds produced. This represents a fairly uncommon opportunity to produce some interesting hybrids....

    Hope to hear from some of you soon!

    WOW [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] Congrats Neps. It's such a rare sight to see one esp on a N. Lowii.

    I wonder if anyone has N. Hamata pollen? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    If anyone had an N. lowii of similar origin that would be first priority though.

    Nice one Jeff

    We'll have a list of available pollen from the highlands available by Wednesday and can send it to you by express mail. I think we have fresh polen at the moment of:

    N. densiflora
    N. spectabilis - giant
    N. aristolochioides (definitely)
    N. ventricosa
    N. copelandii

    and maybe some others. Guess you will have other offers too!

    Congratulations Neps!

    Might check the International Pollen Agency at the top of the nep forum, too, if you haven't already.

    Thanks to everyone for your congratulations, offers of pollen,
    etc. Just contact me privately if you wish to offer pollen.

    And, as has been pointed out already, I would really like to
    get some N. lowii pollen, if anyone has some. One of my male
    N. lowiis bloomed earlier this year and I still have some of the
    pollen. I intend to use it, but would prefer to have some that
    is fresher.... Interestingly, the pollen I have comes from the
    G. Trus Madi variety, so crossing it with my female from G. Mulu
    might be intriguing. In particular, I wonder if the fact that
    these two plants are from distinctly different populations would
    yield offspring which would grow more vigorously than plants
    from either location (sort of a muted "hybrid vigor", as it were).
    Hopefully, the opportunity to test this hypothesis will present
    itself.
