    Please help my Argentii (again)

    Bag it up (or put it in some other kind of humid environment) in appropriate temperatures and let it settle in. Higher temperature for a couple of days isn't going to hurt them. My N. lowii has accidentally gotten above 100f a couple of times and didn't even notice it. They're tougher than you'd...

    Flower sexing

    Looks like we were wrong. This looks female to me. I don't suppose anyone has any pollen available on very short notice?

    Flower sexing

    I'm very excited that my N. (ventricosa x x tiveyi) x truncata is finally flowering. It looks male to me, but as this is my first real flower spike (N. x 'Miranda' doesn't count to me), I'd like some outside opinions.

    Any hope left in my Argentii?

    I'd say they're dead. But you never know. If there's any life left in the roots then pot them up and try to save them.
