    I really like hybrids with Nepenthes spectabilis in their background. Below are three that I tried to photograph today. I apologize for the image quality; I find my little point-and-shoot hard to use in the greenhouse. (What's the one about "a poor workman blames his tools"?)

    N. ventricosa 'squat' x (spectabilis x northiana)

    N. fusca x spectabilis

    N. spectabilis x veitchii H/L


    Good growing,

    I love those 3. I already have the spectabilis x veitchii, (Thanks Tony). I'm getting the vent x (spect x north) tomorrow, (hopefully) - is that an upper or intermediate pitcher? And the other one is on my list. Thanks for the pics. Interesting variety.

    Yeah, those are all great! I have that last one too (thanks Tony, lol!) and it makes the biggest striped peristome in the business!

    Steve,
    That's an early intermediate pitcher. EP posted a photo of an upper pitcher some time ago - outstanding!!

    Capslock,
    I have to thank Tony for mine, too.

    I have a spec x spath or a spec x vent....can't remember off the top of my head...Pretty sure it's the spec x spath....anyway, it's remarkably cool. You're certainly right about those spec hybrids.

    Hi all:

    spathulata X spectabilis has a beautiful peristome comparable to that of spectabilis X veitchii.

    I'd like to see Lowii X spectabilis or spectabilis X aristolochioides cross made someday .
