    It's an insanely great hybrid - not a dud in the bunch. Looking good, Greg!

    Dude! Really... That yellow one is like the most killer hybrid I've ever seen If there was ever a hybrid that should be made cultivar status, THAT is it my friend.. I'd honestly choose that over a cutting of Geoffs personal lowii x truncata or Rob's royal truncata in a flash! It looks like it's huge too!
    Did you just get that as an import from EP and luck the hell out? Or did you buy that one as a cutting?

    The one below the first photo of the yellow one is a great plant (they all are really) too! I like the green under the peristome, and the fact that the rest of it's all purple! Although it's hard to appreciate anything next to the yellow monster...

    How many clones of this cross do you have?

    haha thanks Greg, the yellow clone is a big boy, it was the fastest growing of the bunch, out of the 6 clones that I have. I bought it direct from EP, it was seed grown. It's almost 4 foot tall now and the leaves are about a foot wide each.


    This is what the lowers looked like



    Interesting thing about the yellow clone, is the peristome actually increased as it progressed to uppers, which relates to yesterday's discussion on whether the peristome will recline on the Lowii x Sabre DC cross.

    Where as with the more darker purple clones, the peristome was more reduced and more toothy/ spiky to touch



    Also the pitchers themselves on the yellow clone have always been significantly larger than that of the other cones, but they do seem to be increasingly catching up, I have seen other growers with huge ( almost a foot tall) pitchers on darker clones of Lowii x camp.

    Have you seen these? I think my clone is quite similar to this one...

    Yeah I have seen that clone from EP's facebook page. It's definitely got size on yours, but something about the distorted shape on your clone is cooler in my opinion, although both are just killer! I hope some of my EP plants that are just seedlings right now turn out to be that awesome!

    That is very interesting regarding the peristome expanding with age. I think it's interesting that your purple clone developed some tooth to it, as neither of the parent plants have that as a prominent feature.

    I look forward to trading you my kidney for a cutting of that plant in the future Marc
