    This plant is up for adoption; pay for shipping and its yours. Yes - I'm serious.
    Wow, that's a pretty miserable cross. Basically made a worser maxima.

    I'd like to see how those are turning out, too.

    I would take it, but unfortunately I bet that plant would get big. Then again doesn't look too big from the picture yet. Maybe I gift it to my grandma when it gets big, she is growing nepenthes as well and I doubt she wouldn't like it.

    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'd take it, don't mind the look at all. Got a little extra money at the moment too for shipping....

    I've given that robcantleyi hybrid away now, so no need to inquire. Thanks.

    I can think of at least one other cross no one's mentioned here yet that appears to have turned out amazing: burbidgeae x rc. Could be we just need to find the right species to mix with, or could be we need the right specimens.
