    rafflesiana x merilliana seedling

    Here is the first pitcher this has put out in my care.
    This is EP's cross of a large raff x there HUGE merilliana.
    This seedling has an interesting pattern on the leaves that none of my other neps have.
    I'm going to grow this out till the end of summer then I will have to get rid of it as it will be a huge nep. I wish I could grow this in my window but it didn't like it at all

    PICS











    red pattern on the leaf







    peace,

    I like that! I have a bical x merr that's pretty neat too. Sucks you may have to get rid of it, but keep me in mind if that time comes.

    did you try acclimating it? i have a windowsill N. caesar, though no pitchers its sending out lots of new leaves. and both its parents a believe are lowlanders. though it might be because my plant is really large that it is accepting windowsill conditions. sorry you have to get rid of it, its a really nice plant

    adnedarn, I have a bical x merr and a small (vent x sib) x merr that are growing well. They are working on there first pitchers in my care.
    I'll keep you in mind when I decide to get rid of it.
    dustin,
    I had it in the window for a couple of months and it didn't pitcher at all.
    merilliana likes true LL conditions and it seems this hybrid seems to like LL temps and humidity.

    Wow, that's one heck of a hybrid! It really takes off of rafflesiana. I like that spotting on the leaf as well.
