I've been thinking about hybridizing plants, and was just wondering: If you could make any hybrid in any genus, what would it be? It doesn't even have to be possible, I'd love to see a burmannii crossed with a capensis! But for ones that are, your opinions may spark some ideas for those whose plants that are in bloom.
well if we get to be totally unrealistic, D. capensis x scorpiodes. Big long stem with alien arms. If i had to take it seriously though, N. venticosa x (talangensis x bongso). looks cool, but i'd imagine i'd have about as much luck getting my hands on the genetic material as i would hybridizing a capensis and scorpiodes...
Formerly known as Pineapple
N. ampullaria x vogeliiI would lol at. I would also lol at N. ([edwardsiana x hamata] x villosa)... One more I would lol at is N. inermis x aristolochioides.
N. inermis and N. aristolochioides grow sympatrically so there is a good chance it exists. Maybe some inermis seedlings will turn out to be that.

I would love to see a cross between all the toothy neps like you mentioned Pineapple. I'd also like to see a rafflesiana x bicalcarata, but one that retained the bical's fangs.
Not Growing Up!
Okay, you said it didn't have to be remotely possible...
so here goes...
Cross a Villosa with a VFT,
for a Nep with sharp teeth & a biting action!
Or perhaps a VFT with a Hamata,
for a VFT with a little more "sharp toothy-fang" to it!
a nice Sundew with a VFT,
for a dew with a bit more "rapid grasping action"!
Well, you asked!
Splendid combinations! First one to think outside the restraints of genuses, so I present you with an A+
I like the cross group Drosera idea. A pygmy dew by D. cistiflora would be interesting.
N. mirabilis var. echinostoma x N. edwardsiana
