    That plant is a keeper! N. jacquelineae is an easy plant, so I bet hybrids will generally be very vigorous. And if they look as good as yours, this will be a very popular hybrid parent!

    for those interested here is an email exchange between Rob and i when i asked more questions about the hybrid:

    Me:

    question, did you plant the seed over time? ive been looking for
    pictures of
    others of this hybrid to check out what differences there are between
    siblings but all seem to be of much younger plants than mine. anyways,
    i
    really like this hybrid, its very vigorous and seems to be almost as
    hardy
    as the x Ventrata and even more so than the bongso that are gowing next
    to
    it. to bad it didnt make it into TC, this thing could have taken the
    place
    of 'Miranda' as far as hardy, showy beginners Neps.

    No, the seeds were all sown at the same time (both N. jac and N.
    izumiae)
    but in two different ways. The first hybrids available came from N. jac
    seedlings in the nursery that showed early vigor and were mostly sold
    in
    error as N. jac. We have another larger crop that are much smaller in
    size -
    some too small to be quite sure that they are hybrids yet. The reason
    they
    are way behind the larger plants in circulation has to do with the
    methods
    we use to get plants in-vitro. We initially sowed hundreds of jars of
    N. jac
    seed, usually many seeds per jar. We then randomly selected 48
    individuals
    of varying vigor to multiply up and kept the other seedlings back in
    the lab
    in case of contamination of any of the selected 48 clones, so we could
    have
    a replacements if needed. Only when the 48 clones were well into the
    multiplication stage did we plant out the spares in the nursery. By
    that
    time they are much behind the original nursery grown seed as they have
    been
    rather neglected in the lab by not being reflasked as often as they
    should
    for optimal growth. It's these plants that form the second wave of
    hybrids.
    Although they were germinated in-vitro they do not count as tissue
    cultured
    plants IMO as they are all individual clones and were never multiplied.

    It's too early to know if any of the 48 clones will turn out to be this
    stunning hybrid. I have one plant in my collection that looks just like
    yours except that we have just cut it in two and the pitcher is near
    jet
    black, as black as any Nepenthes I have ever seen.
    and here is the black jac x izumae hybrid he was talking about

    You do have a nice clone Sheridan ;>

    I have a couple still from the originals that came out of the seedling N. jac. I haven't taken any shots lately. They are probably a little smaller since things are just jampacked in my current greenhouse and it's a constant fight for each plant to elbow it's neighbors and put on some size.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Man, that's a great plant. I have a pure Jaq, and you can really see the influence.

    However, my jacq is TINY compared to your monster!

    That is a gotta-get if I ever saw one.....Just one more thing for my near empty greenhouse....

    no terrarium, if i wasnt on dial-up i would post a pic but all it is, is a shelf covered with a couple bucks worth of plastic with the neps sitting in trays with a half inch of LFS in the bottom. the shelves i use are expensive but hardly a requred item, any shelf will do. humidity stays in the 65% range is all. hybrids just make yah look good
