    NG got the plant in the picture from me. Not sure if it was a trade...do you remember, NG? Anyway, I recognize my writing on the label. The plant came from a tissue culture production company in Florida. This happens to be one of their unknown hybrids that was pretty enough to mass produce, so they did it without securing a registered cultivar name. It is a nice looking plant, but appears to be a smaller growing nepenthes. I have a few around the yard that are retaining small stature. Oz

    Hey, that looks a lot like one of my "Unnamed N. maxima hybrids" but my plant is bigger than the one in the photo. It's about 16" across/ 5" pitchers a more developed peristome and slightly peltate tendril insertion on the leaves (about 1 cm in from the tip). Mine will only pitcher in high heat terrariums above 85*F during the daytime and it does even better in the summer when the ultra lowland tank (with bottom heat) goes over 95*F during the day. I tried cuttings of this guy in intermediate and highland tanks and it just sulked and put out a leaf every couple months with a blackened tendril. Mine does do a lot better since I let it's pot sit in a tray with an inch of water in it. I let it dry up a few days before refilling. I never do this with neps but it seems to be one of thekeys for this one.
    A rather finicky hybrid from my experience if indeed it is the same, mine was sold labeled "Nepenthes" at a garden center. This bugger took me a year to get it pitchering. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]
    Anybody know how big the pitchers will eventually get?

    N.G., N. maxima crossed with N. veitchii doesn't necessarily give you N. x Tiveyi. If you cross it yourself, you can call it anything you want. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    That looks like a hybrid of N. truncata x N. maxima to me. But I could be wrong. It doesn't look anything like a Tiveyi to me at least.

    Hi
    Having just brought this while visiting the Hampton Court Flower Show, it was further described as N.fusca x N. maxima. This I believe is correct, as it has the darker pitcher body you get with the N.fusca. And I can compare it with my N. xTiveyi, which looks quite different. Both very nice plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    cheers
