    I don't want to be the one to burst the proverbial bubble here but...... it appears that plant may be N. x kinabaluensis, the natural hybrid of N.villosa and N.rajah.

    yes that plant appears to be the natural hybrid I agree. The rajah is coming out mighty strong

    you're disappointed about having a plant that's even rarer than Edwardsiana in private collections? nah I know you're just kidding! here's my little pipsqueak from the same seed batch as yours. [IMG][/IMG]

    I bought a seed-grown N. inermis a few years ago, only to discover it was a very rare naturally-occurring hybrid between inermis and talangensis: N. pyriformis (or so I believe this is what it is). So, although I was somewhat disappointed that I didn't have inermis after all, I did have what was - at that time - probably the only specimen of pyriformis "in captivity". N. inermis was something I could easily acquire at a later date - but this jungle-bred hybrid is absolutely unique. I'm not going to complain!

    PS: Of course, it was discovered later on that many of the "inermis" plants distributed from that seed lot were "pyriformis" and not inermis, so my plant is likely only one of dozens of unique clones of "pyriformis" in collections.
