    Hi,

    I already posted some pitures of this plant some time ago, but now it is more mature and maybe you can help me identifying it. It is a TC grown N. gymnamphora from Thomas Alt. I don't know where the seed originates from, but in case Thomas collected the seed by himself chances are high, that the mother plant was indeed N. gymnamphora and it could be a natural hybrid. Here the pictures:





    Any input is welcome.

    Cheers Joachim

    Looks like either some maxima, or vietchii in there.

    Don't think that is N. gymnamphora! I would agree N. maxima in there.
    N. gymnamphora x maxima?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Kinda looks like bongso x maxima, or jaquilinae x maxima. Does it have uppers you can post pics of? If ya ever cut it, you should sell the cuttings (wink wink), as it's a very nice hybrid.

    Wow! More attractive than N. talangensis x maxima (a similar-looking hybrid pitcher-wise) considering how flared the peristome is! That plant you have there Joachim, would prove worthwhile maintaining long-term in cultivation! Stunning!

    Thanks for sharing!
    Cheers,

    I definitely don't think it is a pure N. gymnamphora either. Assuming your assumptions are correct and the seed was collected from a wild N. gymnamphora I think that N. bongso would be a good guess - especially if it is the N. bongso that used to be called N. carunculata var robusta. I see why people say N. maxima or veitchii but that would have to be manmade.
