    EP & globosa/hybrid pics... LOTS of 'em!

    N. bellii x carunculata var. robusta: EP expects this cross to look like a purple bellii x veitchii, so I grabbed a few. Here are three of my four clones (the last one hasn't pitchered yet):




    N. hookeriana: this guy is really big. The pitchers can be a bit darker, but it is going into climbing mode. I love the coloration of the perisomte.




    N. lowii x campanulata: one of my more purple clones. Sorry about the fuzziness, but this is the only one I took.


    N. mirabilis var. 'globosa' 'bullfrog': this is about as squat and hairless as you get. There aren't even bristles on the ladder. This is supposed to be a female. Hopefully my bellii x (thorelii x aritolochioides) from Tony goes into bloom at the same time, though crossing this to pure aristolochiodes would be even more interesting...




    N. (lowii x veitchii) x boschiana: this guy is loving Miami in the summer! The peristome starts out striped like this and turns deep pruple to the point parts look black.



    N. mirabilis var. 'globosa' x rafflesiana: developing a nie set of wings.


    N. mirabilis var. 'globosa' x (ampullaria x mirabilis): trio of super cute pitchers? Don't you just want to eat them? Moths love them.


    N. mirabilis var. 'globosa': another female, though sadly my mails decided to make pollen the moment she wasn't receptive. I find this clone very elegant.



    N. mirabilis var. 'globosa': a heck of a lot of promise! Melanoma?



    N. mirabilis var. 'globosa': formed oddly, but the wings help it pull off the look.


    N. mirabilis var. 'globosa' super A# 8: nothing compared to what it will look like...


    N. 'tiger' x mirabilis: kiss it!

    cute

    I really like that A# 8 - it looks really nice. Is it supposed to get more white or something?

    I love the first and second globosa hybrids something about round pitchers. How big are these globosa hybrids, like 2-3 feet in diameter or smaller?

    Do people not save pollen for use later?

    The nice things about globosa is that the plants don't get big like other Nepnethes.The two globosa hybrids are not too big: (8 in. pot)

    I don't have pics of the entire plant for the other cross, but it is not that big, though it should get bigger since it is not mature yet. I have never saved pollen, bu some people have tried with varying degrees of success.

    As for the super A# 8, when mature, it should be deep red with big open wings and a winged tendril. Though, its harder to get the red coloration for some clones. We shall see as this one matures...

    Globosa is great for making colorful squat hybrids! I hope to make some one day soon
