    Photos + mystery hybrid ID

    Hey everyone! I'm new here, so hopefully I don't stuff up the picture uploads/attaching. I grow highland and intermediate Nepenthes in Melbourne, Aus, in a variety of conditions including outdoor, indoor, terrarium and unheated greenhouse. I'm about to share some pictures of my favorites, so enjoy! Additionally, I'm including pics of a hybrid that I have been growing for some years now, but still have no idea about the parentage

    lowii x campulata


    ventricosa x truncata


    (lowii x veitchii-red) x burbidgeae



    (ventricosa x sibuyanensis) x macfarlanei



    xtrusmadiensis x burbidgeae



    truncata x (sibuyanensis x trusmadiensis)




    sibuyanensis x talangensis


    maxima x lowii


    maxima-dark x trusmadiensis
    lower:

    upper:


    And finally, the mystery plant




    It grows well under highland conditions, and is currently inflating the first uppers. Any suggestions??

    Looks a bit like my mystery nep, can't be sure because the leaf shape is not shown. Many guessed that it was Miranda, but it wasn't confirmed and now I have sold it as it didn't make pitchers in my lowland conditions.
    Looking for N. Campanulata hybrids. Also would like to grow some nepenthes from seed. Growlist/pic thread: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-Pete-s-plants

    Your mystery hybrid has an overall pitcher shape that - to me - suggests N. boschiana. Whatever else might be in there is unclear to me. Beautifully grown plants, every one! Welcome to TF :-)

    really nice plants!
    how big is your truncata x (sibuyanensis x trusmadiensis)?

    I would guess that your mystery plant is boschiana X glandulifera

    Your plants are spectacular
    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

    Hey morbus, this plant is small still. 17cm across. I'm impressed with the pitchers already, should become a spectacular plant as it matures
