    Nepenthes hybrid...

    I've been wandering what kind of a hybrid a Nepenthes bicalcarata crossed with a Nepenthes hamata would make, sadly I cant seem to find any photos or information on it. I'd imagine the hybrid would be an intermediate since the parents are an ultra lowlander and a highlander. Has anyone ever seen such a specimen?

    N. hamata crossed with N. hamata would not be a hybrid. I'm assuming you meant something else and just typed N. hamata twice on accident.

    Um, do you mean bical x hamata perhaps? Intermediate would be a good guess, but if they're as delicate as their reputations put them up to be, their hybrids could turn out finicky as well. It's hard for me to believe that no one has tried it before - maybe they just aren't compatible. As to what it would look like, it's hard to predict. Doubtful that the teeth would show up much.

    WOOPS! That's what lack of sleep will do to you : S
    Yes i definitely meant to ask about N. bicalcarata and N. Hamata, sorry for the typo!

    And I agree with you seedjar I was surprised that there was no information, maybe it is picky. Maybe a try of both crosses where one is the pollen donor and the other is the recipient and vice versa would give a possible hybrid??

    I've never seen a bical crossed with a hamata however i managed to purchase a bical crossed with merrilliana from EP here in Australia last year.It's already showing a lot of promise.

    hamata is only delicate when young.....once it gains some size its practically a weed....its just tends to be kinda touchy about low humidity when small and not every one agrees on this, some have had young ones that seem pretty tough.....would be an interesting cross but im thinking it might be mainly bical looking with spotted pitchers and a ridged peristrome....hamatas teeth dont tend to be prominent in crosses and the amp x bical i had(or was it the reverse?) barely had lil nubs where the fangs would be....still be interesting to see what happens, bicals large size and speedy growth coupled with hamatas mottled pitchers and who knows maybe it will have more prominent teeth than some other hamata hybrids.......

    Hopefully we'll eventually get some more edwardsiana family hybrids. I think they'd be the ones to look out for.
