    Thanks to all of you ! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    The hybrids for me are always very difficult to identify.
    Summarizing:

    -1 Something x N. maxima ??
    -2 Something (perhaps N. veitchii?) x N. maxima ??
    -3 young N. ventricosa ??

    Kind regards

    I'm tempted to venture a guess on #1 for the unknown parrent....

    Truncata? The ...er...rim? of the pitcher and the lid both look very truncata-like [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    I had that thought as well, Schloaty. But not being that knowledgeable about neps, I didn't mention it. Also thought the spotting looked raff-like. That got me to wondering what a truncata x raff hybrid WOULD look like. I guess that must exist somewhere?

    Plantakiss,
    It really would be cool, huh? The only thing that makes me tentative about my guess it that the leaves (from what little I can see in the picture) don't seem to have even a hint of the very identifiable heart-shape associated with a truncata.

    You're right Schloaty...I know there are truncata hybrids but I don't remember what the leaves looked like. Maybe the leaf shape would come from the raff parent? I'm not saying that's what Rajah's plant is...I'm just wondering what a truncata x raff would look like. There are so many hybrids out there, surely there is a trunc x raff. Will have to check around and see. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    First looks like a classic N. x mixta to me.
    The second looks like a N. stenophylla x veitchii or N. maxima x vetchii. Its hard to tell without more information from the leaves, the underside of the lid etc.
