    Can you recommend a Highland hybrid?

    Even though my plan was to collect specials, I started looking at hybrids a while ago.

    Xmas is coming and I want to get my self a few plant presents.

    What's your fav hybrid?? and what would you recommend? or how to decide?

    I love stripey peristomes so I lean towards those...anything with platy, spectabilis, lowii, truncata, vietchii, ect ect. There are to many to list lol

    I second the above comment. Something involving spectabilis or lowii tends to be pretty foolproof. Spect also has a beautiful pattern throughout the pitcher in addition to the great peristome. Singalana also makes a great parent IMO because the pitchers have a great shape to them. If you want a hybrid with a potentially funky/interesting shape, then anything with jacq, aristolochioides, or epphippiata would suit you well.

    I'm really liking glabrata x aristo. I'm also partial to anything with veitchii.

    One of my very favorite hybrids I ever grew was N. spectabilis x talangensis, a truly beautiful plant.

    I am currently growing N. spectabilis x singalana and I can say that it certainly oozes potential beauty.
    LOOKING FOR: N. (argentii x bicalcarata) x {[(lingulata x edwardsiana) x (naga x hamata)] x [(klossii x undulatifolia) x (aristolochioides x rajah)]} Growlist: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=124586

    I must say the N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana is quite beautiful.

    I second N. glabrata x aristolochioides.

    A small, but beautiful plant that seems to be as easy as N. spectabilis x aristolochioides.

    Here is a pic of the whole plant.

    It is, but I caution inexperienced growers from attempting it! This is one of the most difficult hybrids in the market and is likely to prove very challenging to even the most experienced grower. There are many fine hybrids available that are just as beautiful and far less difficult to grow.
    Oh, I would also like to point out that burbidgea X edwardsiana has inherited the burbidgea habit of rarely producing more than 1 or 2 pitchers at any given time. My plant has never had more than 2 at a time. It currently sports just one. (It produced a total of 2 in all of 2014)

    One of my personal favorites is the 'Peter D'Amato' clone of N. Briggsiana (below), but its hard to obtain and often quite expensive.

    Many excellent clones of N. Tiveyi are easy to grow and quite spectacular:

    Any hybrid with N. spectabilis is sure to be a winner, IMO.
    N. lowii X spectabilis:
