Pollinating Nepenthes bicalcarata: A couple of the large pitcher plant Nepenthes bicalcarata grows in a pot in our greenhouse and even flowers simultaneously. This film shows how we pollinate the dioecious plant. Enjoy the film (English subtitles provided)!
So I have finally had a flower stalk from my H. heterodoxa and got ready to collect the pollen when the second flower started to open. I did a bit of research on the net and ended up trying the 'brute force' method since I did not have a tuning fork at my disposal! I got out my equipment and managed to collect a fair amount of pollen from the first flower. I am quite pleased that I managed to get some and will attempt to pollinate the second flower once it opens. It however occurred to me, that should anyone walk in on me, I might get a few strange looks
Hi all, I can get my U. jamesoniana to flower consistently, so I would like to try to pollinate them. But it seems that there is not a lot of info on that subject to be found... Any suggestions, information, tips and whatnot is greatly appreciated! Thanks! Tim
