    Thought I had some pics of the basal but I guess I don't and will have to take a pic later for that.
    Here's the full size of the plant, taken January 6th of this year, before it inflated its biggest pitcher that I posted.
    I'd love to take a full pic of it again but it is in the middle of nep forest and you won't be able to see the size clearly

    Oh wow, what size! That's really impressive. I've seen so many neps with a weird pitcher-to-leaf ratio, but yours is really good. No wonder the pitcher was so big. I'm even more amazed that you've manage to get it to this size in just a couple of years. Even with the help of the hybrid vigour, both its parent species is quite slow growers, especially rajah.

    And, I'm going to steal the genious colander/strainer-pot idea.

    Thank you for sharing, this is absolutely what I was looking for.

    No worries, glad I could help.
    Yeah, I used the strainer pot idea due to it having a large root mass and there isn't any net pot big enough for it

    Ah, sweet! Have you germinated them yourself? I hope they turn out somewhat like the EPs cross between Truncata and Jacq. Kind of keeping both the parent species intact, and not as weirdly brutal as an N. eymae x jacq.

    I did not germinate them. These are seedlings from Jeremiah.

    Actually they did germinate. I actually came across the old proboards last year that Rob himself started. I messaged him on facebook, he or someone who works for him replied. This is the exact reply from June 20, 2016.
    "We germinated but very few in the lab. It was a successful cross, but with very low viability. I just checked and there are currently three jars in the lab. That means probably earliest towards the end of next year unfortunately before it's available."
