    Hi,

    I have a N. campanulata where the flowers are about to open. I am leaning to that this is a female, because I see no yellow pollen and even though the flower has not opened completely I believe I can discern an ovary behind the "stigma".

    I would appreciate second opinions on this though.



    Regards,

    Christer

    Hi,

    Thanks rattler for the confirmation.

    Phyrex, apparently the server has decided to take an early Christmas leave [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] . Hopefully it will not take too long until it is back in action again, sorry for that.

    Regards,

    Christer

    That looks exactly like mine, and mine is female....Of course, it seems I botched my first pollination attempt, as I got ZERO seeds. DOH!

    Hi,

    and thanks for the replies. I guess I can start looking for pollen then [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Julian, I know this is a long shot but N. campanulata would be my first choice. If that is not possible, I guess it would be a waste to not try to create some kind of hybrid.

    Shloaty, thanks also for the info about your pollination attempt, although I hoped for a better result [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] It would be nice to know how long the flowers are receptive. BTW, do you remember how long it took before the flowers wilted?

    Regards,

    Christer
