    If I didn't know any better, I'd say it has some sibuyanensis in it!

    I like lambdlth's name for it...

    Here is some of the variability I've seen in mine:






    of course, the uncle looks pretty good too.

    I love just the ventricosa x talangensis! Seems like talangensis makes a really good cross.

    Wow, what interesting variability. It seems like they took a lot of the coloration from the ventricosa parentage. This certainly proves why seed grown material is so awesome.

    Seedgrown material are made of win. srduggins, those are absolutely amazing.

    Looking Good Steve! i agree the pollen donor N. ventricosa red x talangensis were quite nice in their own right. One of those crosses that seems to get the best traits from both parents. I still have a couple floating around the greenhouse

    N. ventricosa red x talangensis
    This one is a lighter clone. Thought this was neat with the size of the pitcher compared to the plant next to it.


    A darker clone.


    And just to add to the pile.. one of the darker N. ventricosa x (vent. x tal.) plants. This one is more typical in shape but with a little more flair up towards the peristome.


    I think with the comparing of the one parent with several of the offspring you can see how it's possible to produce the range of pitcher shapes in the offspring that we encounter.
    Most of the offspring tend to lean towards a N. ventricosa shape with a bulbous base, some constriction in the middle and the upper part of the pitcher roughly about the same size as the base. Not surprising since there are two doses of N. ventricosa.

    N. talangensis however can significantly reduce or eliminate the constriction in the middle as well as make the upper portion the widest part.

    So what happens if you combine the fat bulbous base from N. ventricosa. Eliminate the constriction in the middle. And add the wide top portion? Short and tubby! hehe
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I always find this type of comparison fascinating. One of the reasons I like ordering more than 1 seed grown hybrid. Is there room in this discussion for a cousin?

    ventricosa x (talangensis x carunculata):






    I think these are form a different mother, the squat form of venticosa, but they have the same amount of talangensis.
