female is ventrata from local garden center, the male is the common red ventricosa.
so very very common parentage.
Common parentage, but uncommon offering. If you were to get seeds, I would suggest you try to get them out ASAP. Nepenthes seeds have about a 3 month reliable shelf life with middling care, 12 month shelf life with exceptional care.
Maybe host numerous giveaways as the pods ripen, sell them for cheap, donate to the seed bank if necessary.
I would try to get them out as a bonus if they were in the seed bank, perhaps test germinate some myself, just to give them the best chance possible due to their very short viability.
Just my thoughts.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
