    Grow List for GrowinOld

    Like me, this list is old & outdated!

    Have List: (Not updated nor up to date!)

    Nepenthes Hybrid (Unidentified) about 18 years old!

    (I had sent pics and samples to a few suppliers/friends, who said it looked to be an old Victorian type hybrid and suggested a possible parentage...
    I tried having it identified long ago, and this is what folks came up with:
    Parents possibly N.Ventrata or N.Thorelli... or it might be a hybrid Edinensis x Ventrata by Leo Song (Andrew Marshall).
    Bruce Lee Bednar thought it to be N.Mixta Var. Sanguinea x Williamsii from Longwood, or N.Chelsonii x Mixta Superba by Song.
    Clyde Bramblett thought it to be Chelsonii x Irregulata from John D. Kanal, Longwood. (Shown)

    N. Bicalcarata (A Youngin')! I can't get used to this tissue cultured thing!
    We used to do cuttings in my time, and had mature plants faster.
    But then, I now CAN get many plants never before available!

    Dews..... common stuff/uncommon stuff (I can never keep good track of what I have in dews!)
    Tags seem to always fade or disappear for some reason!

    VFT... (Common)
    Big Mouth

    Cephalotus Hummer's Giant & Commons

    Bladderwort (Aquatic: not sure what variety. Seasonal.)

    Non-Carnivorous Plants:
    Passion Vines, Misc plants.... etc.

    Want List (*prefer)

    Pings: "pink & white" leafed looking ones

    Sarr's: Wilkerson's Red / Leah Wilkerson? /Adrian Slack
    Big Red/Royal Ruby, Bordeaux Red Wine' leucophylla x rubra gulfensis
    S. flava var. cuprea - yellow trumpet

    S. Flava -Yellow (Or any Sarr. Variety w/color or veining, Deep Red...)
    Flava shape (Alata)
    flava rubricorpora, 'Hurricane Creek White',
    moorei, "Pensacola", 'Royal Ruby' / “Big Red”



    N.Vikings [Globosa],
    Couple of Amp's. [red w/green lip (red giant?)or green w/red lip (a type of Hot Lips)?
    N. Queen of Hearts
    N. Veitchii
    N. Villosa/Macro's/Hamata's, etc.
    (And N. Edwardsiana too...Not that I could find/afford one! This is a want list after all!)

    Low Giant, S.W.Giant (any of the giant trap varieties).

    Should I post a R.I.P./Kill list? Perhaps not! Tends to get long after 40+ years of growing!

    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
