    Never been able to get mine to bloom though I have seen the flowers many times before on other people's plants. They really are unique.

    Certainly. But you would need to have a male plant and a female plant if you actually hoped for seeds.

    Rather nicely colored for Nepenthes flowers, Mieczyslaw. Many are just a nondescript green.
