    Anyone have spec x mira?

    I have one of these on the way, finally. I have yet to see a picture of what they look like though. I imagine it will be fairly colorful. Anyone else growing this one?

    Hi,

    I received this one recently. I usually don't go for hybrids, but after seeing photos of the lovely mother plant (BE's giant N. spectabilis) I thought the combo with N. mira would be a good one. I might live to regret this statement, but I am confident that it will be a show stopper. Since they are seed plants there will be variation, currently mine seems to take after the mother - since it is very "spectabilish".



    Regards,

    Christer

    Beautiful plant! It's definitely looking very much like a N. spectabilis, but maybe that will change once it matures.

    On a side note, I have a N. spectabilis that's finally settling in and producing a new leaf and pitcher. I can't wait for it to start churning out the goods!

    The colors are just like spectabilis. Your hybrid's pitchers look great, and I hope you enjoy them in the future.

    It's a beauty. Thanks for posting the pic. It will be interesting to see how the mature pitchers turn out.

    This one has been a little disappointing to me so far. Too much like spectabilis and not enough mira influence. The seller has added a pic to his site that looks like what I was hoping for. Perhaps as it matures it will get better.

    Well, here's the latest pitcher from my spec x mira after recently opening. Takes a long time to inflate each pitcher. Basically a fat spec. I've seen others pics of this hybrid and there is definitely some variation in color and shape. I've overall been a little disappointed in my specific plant, but the latest pitcher is finally showing a little potential. The pitcher is about 4".
