Agree about N.glab x aristo, one of the best hybrids to exit BE in recent times IMO. Super excited to see each pitcher inflating.
One of the hybrids that you gave me Whim showing some of its aristolochioides heritage with a lid facing a bit towards the front rather than the top

Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly
I hope to have some more pictures, soon. Now that conditions have been corrected (New England = No Built in AC....now the plants have their own), I should be getting some more pitchers (and photos) soon. Hopefully, answer Red Lowii's question from a few pages back with a photo.
Looking good, Red Lowii!
Here is N. aristolochioides x boschiana:
This is a recent aquisition. so I cannot take credit for the pitcher.
One reason I selected it is the red midveins from the boschiana parent:
That's a really great looking plant Paul, really glad I picked one up
I love the smell of nep pollen in the morning..........smells like victory
Is it normal for leaf size to decrease as N. aristo hybrids begin to vine? I have a N. ariso x bellii, and the newest leaves are tiny. When I got the plant, the rosette leaves were 6 inches long, and traps were 1 and a half inches long. Now, leaves have decreased to 3 inches long, and pitchers have doubled in size.
My temps are day: 75-80f, night 60-65f
