    Name that Nep Hybrid

    Hi,

    Can anyone identify this one? A good test for the Nep hybrid enthusiast. If you get it you gain the status of CP Sheldon from the Big Bang theory show. If you are not familiar with the show Sheldon knows everything there is to know about anything scientific /historic basically a supernerd.

    the shape isnt right for a N. ventricosa x maxima. it reminds me of ventricosa x malpuensis(sp?) though.

    The ventricosa part of the hybrid is correct. No one has gotten the other parental species yet. I probably could have provided more details of the plant but this was all I got. I want to give a hint but I'm afraid I'll give it away. Hmm, Hint: The other is a slower growing more compact lowlander.

    lowlander. slow. compact....truncata? looks nothing like ventricosa x truncata to me. the leaves are too "lancey" and not blunt.

    theyellowdart: the parents in that hybrid and ventricosa and N. sibuyanensis....or so people think. most of the EP hybrid's parents were not given out to make sure someone doesnt re-create the cross. it could be jungle bells. long tendrils would give that hybrid away. but i cant tell from the photo.

    Well, the tendril threw me for a loop....but the lid looks like it may be amp, which is about as compact as you can get.
