    Greetings,

    I received two hybrids back in October, and they are now producing new pitchers. I took a couple photos showing the first new pitchers to form. The photos aren't the best quality.

    N. lowii x truncata


    N. maxima x veitchii

    Yeah, both of those look like winners. The maxima x veitchii peristome is crazy!

    I like those hybrids. Where did you get them from?

    Leopardgecko,

    I received the plants from Tony at exoticplantsplus.com.

    The max x veitchii is great. The peristome is lime green at first, and then turns blood red in about a week. The next pitcher on the plant should be even larger.

    Don't neglect the great hybrids of the past!

    Thanks for the info. I've heard great things about that place.

    Everything is explainable. The seemingly unexplainable is but a result of our insufficient knowledge.- Hans Brewer

    glider,

    I grow max x veit plant under intermediate conditions. The temps vary depending on the season, but the daytime high is usually around 75-80F and the lows around 63-70F. I really think this hybrid can adapt to a lot of different conditions. The main requirement is to have plenty of room! My plant is around 1.5ft diameter with pitchers around 10-12".
