    UNCC hybrids (lot o' pics)

    These were taken today during the big ol' plant sale. The plants are waking up, but I'm told they're still a good month or so away from hitting their full glory. All of Dr. Mellichamp's hybrids are in a bog together. He says he doesn't create new ones anymore.

    The shots have been cropped and shrunk (and I'm hardly a great photographer to begin with), but I think I got at least a long shot of them all. I still have the originals (for now) in 2592x1944. If anyone wants to see something in hi res I'll send it.

    Here's the hybrid bog. There are quite a few other plants in there as well - orchids, other CPs, and probably things I don't notice.




    Closer shots:































    He had two (divisions?) of the 'Ritchie Bell' hybrid up for sale. He said he hasn't yet made that one commercially available.

    That's quite the bog there. Some of those names were kinda weird, tattletale delegation, really? Everything looked pretty good but I imagine it will look even better in a few months.

    Such robust plants! None of my sarr stalks, except maybe flava, are half as thick as those.

    back in the early 90's Dr. Mellichamp along with a few other started a club for cper's near nc..he had at that time a spring and fall sell..i was one of the lucky ones to get some of Dr. Mellichamp's named and un-named hybrids at that time..he had so many he was letting a friend of his sell /trade them..dave crump was/is hes name..last i spoke to dave most of the hybrids have been traded or sold..more than likely though knowing dave he has a few tucked away..at one of our first meetings we auctioned off some of the more rare cp's plants(at that time, most are common now) this is were i bought my first nepenthes and shortly after that lost it..it took me many years to figure out how to get them started..the internet was the biggest help when i finally got a pc..i'm long winded.lolololol

    I got my first plants from David Crump. He said that I could get a tour from Dr. Mellichamp when I bought some sarr's from him. But didn't know squat at the time about anyone in the hobby. I will give David a call to see if they still do this meeting down there. Thanks frogintn2
