    Are you sure you spelled it right? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] I have a book based on the carnivorous plants from all over tha world and in its hybrid list there is no such thing as a n. x gentle. I even searched in the web and there is no such thing. Who gave it to you anyways? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Maybe that will help...

    I know one of the species is maxima...I had a website for the parents of it but it appears it's not under my favorites any more...maybe I misplaced it under unfavorables [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Anyhow, here's a link to the hybrid. N. x 'gentle'

    Goldtrap, where did you get that info? It is incorrect. N. maxima crossed with N. veitchii makes N. xTiveyi not N. x gentle.

    goldtrap2690,

    Hybrid neps like N.xGentle are very difficult to id the parents because of the variability of crosses.

    This plant is sometimes sold by Gubler's etc., and I remember that it originated from a Dutch nursery. One of the parents is mentioned to be maxima "Superba'. Who knows about the other(s)...
