    Wild lutea x caerulea hybrids?

    I believe that I've read of this hybrid in captivity, but can it happen with wild plants?

    It would depend on their natural range and elevation, if they overlap, then it's possible. All nepenthes can hybridize with each other, so range really is the deciding factor.

    Oops, I didn't realize that I was in the butterwort forum, I thought I clicked on nepenthes. Sorry for the confusion there.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    Far better to edit your first post Curtis then no-one would know about the oooops.

    This hybrid doesn't appear at all in the cpphotofinder. Unless it's been given a name.

    Both P. lutea and caerulea have chromosome counts of 2n=32, and they are closely related so theoretically a hybrid is possible. However, I've yet to see any hybrids between the southeast US butterworts either in cultivation or in photos in situ, so it may well be there are other obstacles to creating hybrids. In the wild, the coloration and/or timing of the flowers may prevent pollinators from switching between species as well.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
