    Dear all,

    Can you really see on the flower bud, what gender a Nep is? It would be good to have these few extra days to arrange for a pollen exchange etc.
    Does somebody have pictures comparing male and female flower buds? I guess I could also forcefully open a flower and take a look.
    Would this mirabilis

    be a girl then?

    Thanks, Volker

    Ditto, as a general rule, males are short and round, and females are longer and more tapered. This does not hold true for every species, but certainly the majority of them.
