    Difference between N.arist x spect and N.spect. x arist.?

    Hi, is there anybody knows the difference between N.aristolochioides x spectabilis and N. spectabilis x aristolochioides in the shape? From the pics, seems that the former has more shape of N.aristolochioides? But I am not sure. I've never grown any of the two neps.

    If you know other unique plants that can walk, can talk, can sing, or can eat people, please tell me and I definitely want to get one.

    It's my understanding that the mother plant is *usually* more dominate in crosses, so it appears your observation is correct.

    You know, this post makes me realize that I know have to figure out which cross of a hybrid I want, cause I'm not gonna room for two of everything u.u'
    HOW CAN YOU CHOOSE WHEN TWO PLANTS MAKE SUCH DIFFERENT RESULTS?!

    I think I should just buy Borneo. I'm gonna need that much space.

    Island!? She just bought mars, and she's terraforming it, you know what that is?, of course you don't, she invented it! I'm sure there's enough space on Mars for the plants


    Back On topic though, this is a good reason for following the female first rule, other than knowing the sex of the each parent. that's why I like this system. Have you seen the light brokken
