    (spathulata x aristo) x (lowii x ventricosa)

    This cross is bound to have a lot of variation in it. It's probably hard to find two plants that are alike. This little one is showing a lot of promise in its coloration and wide peristome with a narrow mouth:


    I'm not sure why, but this one always seems to have this curvey pitcher body. I like the way the lid is already reflexing back like lowii (and look at those glands):


    This is the darkest and most interesting peristome in the group. It looks somewhat talangensis-like:

    Woah, now that is an interesting looking Nepenthes. Strange, a few of those don't even resemble aristolochiodes at all. Very nice though, can't wait to see them more.

    Post 'em up. I imagine there is a lot of variation in this cross. With 4 species involved, any one of the grandparents could dominate. I see a little aristo in the introgressed peristome and spotted pitcher body. Have you seen the mother? I'm not positive, but I did find this photo from EP:
