This cross would be great! A nice a colorful flared upper combined with a stripy lower. *chefs kiss. There’s also another member on this forum that’s about to have their first male flower that would also make an absolutely splendiferous cross. You should look into that too ;)

looks like this is not going to line up, the male is almost done and the boschiana female bloom spike is 22 inches and still growing.

You can collect the pollen, dry it out, and freeze it, then apply to the female flower later. Just throwing out options.

If you'd like it to be a bonus, we can definitely do that. Nep seeds seem to move more quickly that way.
Good luck.
