    What is your favorite hybrid?

    Hybrids are usually liked less than straight species here, so lets see some nice things about them!

    This is an impossible question: there are too many to choose from!
    Okay, of the ones I have, maybe 'Splendid Diana' x ventricosa "red." They're vigorous plants, and immensely varied in appearance.
    Of the ones I don't have.... Anything with teeth, dark color, or extreme mottling and striping.
    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.

    My favorite hybrid in my collection is my lowii x truncata "wide peristome". I also really liked the veitchii x platychila I used to have...I really miss it.

    My young Trusmadiensis x burbidgeae is a bit slow, But puts out exciting pitchers every time and they just keep getting better and better. My two plants also tolerate the sometimes ridiculously-high daytime temperatures and they don't skip a beat

    Hamata x nigra. I only saw it once through a google search and it was love at first sight.

    I don't even have it in my possession yet but I am already gonna go ahead and say that my new favorite hybrid is N. robcantleyi x hamata!!

    Man every thing about the cross just seems disproportionately epic.
    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

    Miranda for sure, so easy to grow but at the same time elegant and impressive when grown well.
