    And speaking of N. glabrata, the cross with N. talangensis is one of my favorite "miniature" Nepenthes:

    Thanks for the warning on N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana. I was under the assumption ALL hybrids are easier to grow. Good to know that some of them still remain challenging.

    I've honestly never looked much into spectabilis and glabrata. However, all this pictures has changed my mind.

    oh man... now i really want a lowii.......

    If you can find a N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana and you really want it, I wouldn't be scared away of it if I were you. It is true that it is slower growing and more finicky about humidity and temperature changes, but it is still slightly more resilient than a lot of picky highlander species. I grew it somewhat successfully in a rather modest set up for a couple years and it provided me with happiness. It is well worth the trouble of growing too.

    dexenthes, could you show your spec X sing please?

    I just made the reverse cross myself - not knowing this one exists - and would like to see this potential.
    Cheers

    It doesn't currently have any pitchers on it, but here is a picture of an older pitcher it once had.
