    I've been told by Crystal who has a few still, mines so far unique. That's why I'm contemplating registering it as a cultivar, but want to see a few more pics before I do. Haven't seen any yet. I hear tropics was the originator of the seeds. Does he get on much??

    There is actually a correction. Either my tags was messed up or I messed it up but the cross is actually

    N. x splendiana x [(veitchii x maxima) x veitchii]

    Yes the seed did come from Tropics, I had a bunch too. All mine were traded, sold or given away so hopefully there are some still out there. From what I remember none had the peristome stay that way once the got older so you may have a unique one. The whole batch had a lot of variety from plant to plant.

    Here are some photos of mine, which I obtained as splendiana x (veitchii x Tiveyi), also from tropics via Crystal:

    A pitcher with fairly average peristome:
    N. splendiana x (veitchii x Tiveyi)

    The back of another with less reflexion:
    N. splendiana x (veitchii x Tiveyi)

    The peristome did not reflex much on this third one, but still not as exaggerated as yours:
    N. splendiana x (veitchii x Tiveyi)

    Whole plant, about 22 inches / 56 cm wide, with Rokko sitting on it and lowii x campanulata in the background:
    N. splendiana x (veitchii x Tiveyi)

    Mikulea wouldn't N. splendiana x (veitchii x Tiveyi) be a different cross than N. x splendiana x [(veitchii x maxima) x veitchii]?

    Yours is looking awesome too. I'm about to have to take mine out of the terrarium. Its starting to put on some size and is elongating. I think I see vining soon.

    Yes, those crosses would be different, but I suspect we have the same cross. I believe the male plant Tropics had in his possession was veitchii x x Tiveyi. See this old giveaway thread here:

    http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...seeds-for-SASE

    On another forum, Tropics shows his plant as (vetichii x Tiveyi):

    http://pitcherplants.proboards.com/thread/2350/misc

    http://pitcherplants.proboards.com/t...eitchii-tiveyi

    I haven't been able to find any mention of Tropics having a ((veitchii x maxima) x veitchii). Interestingly, that is the completely opposite ordering of parents in the plant that he did seem to have.

    It will be exciting to see what your uppers look like!

    I stand corrected: After digging up the sales thread from which I bought my plants, I found that it was originally listed as splendiana x ((veitchii x maxima) x veitchii). I also dug through Tropics' Flickr photostream and found that he had both (veitchii x maxima) x veitchii AND veitchii x (maxima x veitchii). Given this information, I will correct my tags to splendiana x ((veitchii x maxima) x veitchii).
