    Oh, then I don't know. I would have to imagine ventricosa would be.

    Doesn't matter, it's still ventrata regardless of the pod parent. In the wild, the cross occurs in both directions

    Well, is there a difference in how they look bassed on the mother or father plant? Like is Bical x amp going to look the same (i now they won't look exactly the same because of genes and what not) as amp x bical?

    Yeah, I thought that it would make a difference of who makes the seeds.

    There's a theory that the pod parent shows up a bit more in influence, and it seems to be generally true, but not always. Species like truncata, ventricosa, etc, are going to be dominant no matter what parent they are.

    Sexed traits aren't universal... some species may yield similar hybrids independent of which plant was the mother, while other species may have traits that are only carried on the male or female germ line.
    As for the ID, when it's a ventrata-group plant as this one seems to be, I always like to mention "Deroose's Alata," which is a plant that was distributed labeled as though it were N. alata but was actually N. alata x ( alata x ventricosa ) and simply named after the mother plant. Looks like your typical N. x. ventrata but shows more of the alata traits.

    Beautiful find. I actually picked up a sorry looking N. ventrata at an Armstrong's Nursery about two weeks ago. It had a broken growth tip, so the nursery worker sold it to me for half price, which resulted in my acquisition of a nice-sized plant for only $8. Now I patiently wait for one of the dormant nodes to activate...
