    What will be a popular Nep hybrid in 10yrs time? And any other genus?

    My money's on vent 'red' x edwardsiana attempts will be made.

    I hate vent red as much as the next snobby Nep-growin' guy, but I finally agree that it does lend itself well to making hybrids. Those resulting offspring end up readily acclimating to, and thriving in, various sorts of terrible conditions. So, make sure the redness of eddie shows through, hope the teeth also show up in the phenotype, and make it easy to grow. Offering 'select clones' with excellent redness, hip, and teeth. Considering the proliferation of edwardsiana (and those waiting in the laurels popping up) in the past year, I could see it happening if the flowering time for it is <10yrs.

    In 10 years, who knows how many other species may have been discovered - and crossed.

    Personally, I'd like to see villosa hybrids where some of those wickedly beautiful pitchers are crossed with hardier species or crosses like TM.
    Another thing I'd like to see are backcrosses to try to enhance vigor while retaining a lot of the original species: aristo (thor x aristo)
    And there's always new things to cross with Trusmadiensis.

    Was just thinking about this n the morning but N. campunalata X edwardsiana would be a real stunner. . . also Spathulata X Edwardsiana because it would retain more teeth.
    I also think N. tenuis X (hamata X truncata) would be very cool (which I am currently making with a Tenuis in the UK ).


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I think lowii x hamata will become popular. It has already been created but the plants are still in seedling stage.

    I'm just going with the first thing that came to mind: singalana x villosa.
