    Photos?

    I admit we expect big things from hybrids with robcantleyi, but in my opinion it is a bit early to shoot it down as a parent. Give them time to reach some size at least before throwing words around that they are failures. There are lots of more boring hybrids out there.

    Regards,

    Christer

    There have been a few other shots from people, and unfortunately this is one I have missed out on as well, but most pics show that fat body and an amazing peristome.
    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.

    I'm going to want to see photos from other growers before I declare that cross a winner - one promo shot from the breeder isn't going to convince me.

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.
    On that note, just snapped a couple pics this afternoon:
