    What do you think a N. rajah oy any other very large nepenthes crossed with a very small nepenthes like N. ampullaria size or smaller would look like?

    The world is just big enough for us to not realize how small it really is.

    I think we had this question (or a similar one) before.

    Chances are the offspring would be kind of dull actually. When you cross two extreme species they often cross each other out, which is reasonable when you think about it logically.
    Big + small = medium

    You tend to get much more interesting hybrids when you cross species with similar extreme features - something like hamata and edwardsiana or veitchii and jacqu. for example.

    Cheers, Troy.

    maybe N. ovata + veitchii + jacquelineae + spathulata = nepenthes with a huge peristome (it would be my favorite nep)
