Not Growing Up!
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Like me, this list is old & outdated!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!

Bladderwort (Aquatic: not sure what variety. Seasonal.)
Passion Vines, Misc plants.... etc.
