    Hey guys,
    just wanted to let everyone know I have a male campanulata, and male aristo flowering. I'm hoping some body out there has a female campanulata, aristo, or hamata in bloom. Let me know, and I'll send out some pollen so we can make little guys!
    Thanks!

    Not so sure about campanulata x hamata, a species with virtually no peristome crossed with one with an extreme one will produce something much less interesting than truncata x hamata. As for aristo x hamata, that one has been done here in Australia but the seedlings are still tiny, so no characteristics will be seen for years.

    You might be able to do it after numerous crosses and backcrosses. At the moment, Neps have been bred mostly by chance than by design due to the difficulty in getting the desired species of the right sexes flower at the same time. But I can see Neps becoming like roses and being bred for specific traits.

    It seems that N. hamata passes on the coloration of the lower pitchers to it's hybrids, and not so much the toothed peristome. With N. campanulata x hamata, it seems that the unique shape and color of campanulata's pitcher would be lost, and the toothed peristome of hamata would also be lost.

    actually Brian, i am interested to see what some of the newer hamata crosses will do. if yah look at the Preditor hybrid i am quite surprised with how much the teeth tried to come through given how dominant truncatas peristrome is in other hybrids. i think hamatas peristrome is much more dominant than we are giving it credit for. but the truncata cross wasnt ideal to try and get it to show its stuff. i agree that most any cross we come up with isnt going to improve on hamatas teeth unless we get to cross it with other toothy species but who reall knows what some of these crosses will actually come up with

    I'm always interested in seeing different hybrids too. It seems to me that the peristome on the N. x predator is distinct simply because truncata passes on it's flared peristome. If the peristome wasn't flared, I don't think the teeth would be as distinct. I haven't seen too many hamata hybrids so I'm basing it on N. x predator.

    Check out the updated homepage of exotica plants: update There is a great shot of a large N. x predator. The peristome is great. Now imagine a hybrid between artiso and hamata. Would the peristome be as dramatic? Does artisto have enough peristome to bring out the hamata teeth?
