    Maybe I'm the odd one out, but I don't mind rc hybrids, a lot of them aren't as flashy as the species but they have qualities I like (and admittedly if it's a male I'd love pollen from it....).
    Sorry to hear about all the leaf issues, I often do the same thing as Cruzzfish if one seems to be developing oddly, but it doesn't happen often...
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    The only Rc hybrids that have been done that I think there is some hope for are Rc x hamata and Rc x Ovata. I know they're quite new but anyone have pics of pitchers on theirs?

    I also remember seeing one good clone of Rc x ventricosa, someone posted a pic over a year ago, can't find it. It was probably a one in a hundred clone, all the others from that grex look like junk. Rc x densiflora is probably the first proven good looking Rc hybrid in cultivation and this is thanks to the dominance of densiflora.

    Agreed about the densiflora cross - that is the only one I've seen that I would consider growing. I did have the ventricosa X robcantleyi and grew it for a year - hoping and hoping it would become more interesting. In fact, it did the opposite - becoming more homely and awkward looking with every pitcher; reminded me of a cross between a giant pumpkin and the baby from Eraserhead.

    I remember people were saying similar stuff about hamata hybrids a few years ago; now I'm seeing some hit the market that are actually rather nice. Maybe we just need to find a robcantleyi with stronger genes?
