    Daniel... Aristo x spect is going be a spectacular hybrid. Personally its waaay nicer than lady pauline IMO. But yeah....the aristo parentage in it might cause some issues if you don't have highland temps.

    I dunno what Aristolochioides x spectabilis will look like, but Lady Pauline is one impressive plant. Singalana is nice, has some neat pitchers that look slightly angular and a toothed peristome that recalls that of hamata but not nearly as well developed. My own plant just put out a new pitcher:

    My concern now is the picky aristo parent. Obviously Aristo x Spec, will inherit some of both of its parents growing needs and habits, how will this affect the plant, is Aristolochioides picky?

    For me....aristo has been picky. It is growing...but not thriving. However, I did abruptly change its conditions which was totally responsible for its setback...but yes! it can be a finicky plant.

    You have you remember that hybrids can be more forgiving. :x I have spect x aristo and I don't think it's picky at all. Then again, this is aristo x spect so it will probably inherit more of the aristo. I'd still go for it though, if you have highland conditions. You'll never know unless you try.
