    Very nice to hear that it is probably a female Ron, congratulations.

    I don't see where all the N. robcantleyi hybrid hate is coming from. While I will agree that most of the hybrids aren't ridiculously attractive, most that I have seen are at least still robust and interesting looking, not worthy of ridicule IMO. Also I feel that many of the more promising mixing of genetics have yet to come! Could you imagine N. robcantleyi x lowii? N. robcantleyi x hurreliana? N. robcantleyi x ampullaria. . . N. roncantleyi x rafflesiana, N. robcantleyi x bicalcarata . . . etc etc.
    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 quite like the robcantleyi hybrids, I grow, fusca x robcantleyi, densiflora x robcantleyi and ventricosa x robcantleyi all on se windowsills and they do really well, so I can attest the hardiness of these hybrids.

    N. robcantleyi is like a better version of N. truncata, so I will expect improved results using it. In my eyes it has done that, but one have to look at the other parent too when judging the results. I am still hoping for a hybrid with BE's N. spectabilis "giant". Rob tried that cross few years back, but unfortunately no success.

    Regards,

    Christer

    The robcantleyi x veitchii (Bareo) from BE is a vigorous grower even in lowland conditions...imagine its potential in highland conditions!

    I vote for veitchii pollen!

    We can wish for all sorts of things but if pollen isn't available, it really doesn't matter. I put a notice on Nep forum several days ago & no responses at all.

    All the best,

    I have N. Mastersiana pollen available, but it would be more for the novelty of the cross than any real genetic merit.
