    Too tired to sleep.. is that possible? Anyway... A few pics of some new things

    N. Medusa (bellii x sibuyanensis) I have had this cross before but this arrived in the mail a few days ago. Most are a little more elongated and redder. Plant is 17" diameter and tendrils were easily that long.


    N. Hookeriana x spectabilis I am always on the look out for highland x lowland stuff. I think this has fantastic promise for breeding purposes to produce great shapes and colors on easy to grow plants in just about any lowland - highland climate.


    And a couple plants of an intriguing new hybrid. I had to try some even though they are lowlands. These two seemed to have the best coloration although all of them are quite pretty.
    N. (thorelii x rafflesiana) x rowanae
    Young plant 6" diameter


    Large plant 14" diameter


    Tony

    ps sorry BobZ.. will get them into proper area on my website soon as I finish my Taxes!
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Great images, Tony. That N. Hookeriana x spectabilis is very colorful and certainly has great potential as a parent, as you pointed out.
    Thanks for sharing,

    Hard to get a good shot but here ya go Ludwig! The pitcher that is just opening on the right is a different plant. Hard to believe there is N. bellii as one parent!

    Thanks so much Tony! I really think these are awesome plants. Mine is still not large enough to pitcher but it has tendrils forming on most of the newer leaves. Thanks again!
