Sure, how would we go about doing this? My flowers are actually not open
yet, so I should wait to make sure they are female :-). Also, I went back
to A. Slacks book on growing CP, and his picture of N. khasiana looks a bit
different than mine. Like the picture, mine has no "wings" on the front of
the pitcher. However, Slack's picture shows sort of a horizontal edge
about 2/3 of the way down the picture which mine doesn't have. Could I
have something else besides N. khasiana?
