Flowering N. campanulata

Recommended Posts

Hi, my N. campanulata is flowering.

I'm very noob at nepenthes and this is the first plant flowering, so I'm not sure on what to do.

The plant is small, should I cut the flower? If anyone is interested in pollen swap the plant looks male.

I think that it's fine to let your N. campanulata flower. The species never truly vines, so it stays in rosettes and flowers quite a bit. That is a very healthy plant, congratulations!

Looks male. You might consider having a peek at Dicon's post (pinned topic). Nice little plant.

Take a close look at: 1) The overall shape of the inflorescence. Males tend to be conical shaped. Females are bunted or more oval. 2) The shape of the individual flowers. Males are round, spherical. Females tend to be more elongated with an oval shape.
