    People, remember just because you cross a toothy nep with a normal nep, doesn't mean you'll get a toothy version. Mostl likely, the teeth will be gretly reduced but visible, but not as spectacular as the toothy parent. Thats just my opinion.

    N. clipeata x rajah:
    Think about the possibilities! N. rajah has tubby, red pitchers and N. clipeata has elongated, egg-white, flask-shaped pitchers. They should have an interesting petalate insertion, intermediate between parents.

    N. aristolochioides x stenophylla:
    They both seem to make some promising hybrids.

    Talking hamata x lowii

    I drew a lowii x hamata or the reverse in school.
    I'm normally done with my work before everyone else leaving me time to draw.
    No drawing when I should be working

    I drew how I'd like the plant to look.

    They aren't always intermediate between parents, you know.

    Nice sketches.

    Wow, that is a great one. I was trying to figure out something to use stenophylla for, you really nailed it there.

    Also, you guys need to keep in mind what happened with N. x Predator and a lot of other hamata hybrids. Usually, the teeth barely come through at all. If you want true toothiness, I think the edwardsiana family is where it's at.

    Nice, clue. N. aristo x stenophylla is a good one. I was actually think of N. aristo x platychila before.

    Here's one I thought up before I went to bed last night.

    N. campanulata x reinwardtiana

    So as we've seen with campanulata x veitchii, campanulata doesn't seem too receptive to peristomes, so I figure, why bother? Reinwardtiana has long, elegant pitchers that I think would go towards extending the campanulata shape. I would say both the red and green varieties should be tried.
