    I like the N. singalana x hamata better than I like the single-species hamata. Good color, great teeth. How small is miniature?

    I've had quite a few freeze to death before. This winter has been really mild, though it looks like they might be ready to go come spring!

    I'm pretty sure. I got the seeds from Jeremiah. This was the only plant that sprouted out of them all and it doesn't resemble any of the other seedlings that I've sprouted. The way that the over all plant is growing definitely makes the heritage seem believable, at least to me.

    I've owned it for four years and this is a three inch pot I believe.

    Looking good. Can't wait to see photos of the outdoor bog once spring gets started up for you.

    Do you have a pic of the whole plant? Mine is just starting to reach a size where I'm seeing hints of the peltate tendril, and it has no evidence of either heavy patterns on the pitcher or stripes on the peristome, and only the barest hints of teeth along with a very thick peristome.

    No peltate tendril signs yet. . . I admit the peristome is surprisingly skinny on my plant.

    Yeah, mine looks nothing like either of those plants; glabrous, no sign of truncate leaves...actually, the plant on the side of the pot looks more similar to mine (which I got straight from the source greenhouse) than the plant in the middle that I assume the pitcher pictured earlier came from, which looks more like a truncata or maybe robc hybrid.

    Interesting. . . Can I see a pic of yours?

    Also I would imagine that the genes of these two species would produce some rather variable offspring.

    Sorry for the wait, here's my plant:
    N. rajah x jacquelineae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    N. rajah x jacquelineae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    N. rajah x jacquelineae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

    It looks roughly like a giant version of a really young rajah, with the more elongate leaves than pure rajah would have at this point and that really wide peristome that starts showing in the jamban complex at this age. No speckles, no serious teeth, and not really any discernibly distinct indumentum.

    Interesting. Our plants certainly do have a number of differences. I still maintain that mine is also the hybrid in question - we'll see how it looks as it gets older. As I would imagine from the widely different genes between the two parent species that the offspring could/would be highly variable. If our plants are indeed siblings it seems yours is clearly leaning towards the N. jacquelineae side of things and mine might be a little more on the N. rajah side of things.

    EDIT: I spoke with Jeremiah and he doesn't think it is N. rajah x jacquelineae either. So now I have a mystery plant.

    I never thought much of N. campanulata but after Zu gave me so many sweet campy hybrids they have really started to grow on me, especially this one. N. (lowii x vetchii) x campanulata





    This one's interesting too. . . N. boschiana x campanulata





    N. burbidgeae x glandulifera



    D. regia
