Female Maxima Sending Up a Flower Spike


Getting There...
So a maxima cutting I received a few months ago has been doing quite well and is sending out a flower stalk. The leaf just started unfurling to show it. This is only my second flower, so I don't exactly how long it should take to be ready for pollen.
If anyone has any male flowers that might overlap, just post here or PM me!
Happy to do a seed split (I'll give most of my share away on here probably!) and am not too picky about the crosses!
Happy Growing,
I can get pollen from N. veitchii 'K' and 'Red Dragon' in the next few weeks.
I still have ventricosa pollen I can send. A remake of 'Red Leopard' might be interesting!
I have an N.smilesii that has a stalk in the works, and there are no hybrids with smilesii as far as I know, maxima would be a perfect fit!
Some pictures of the flower I just took...anyone have any idea how long it might be until its ready for pollen?
