    Hello,

    I'm looking for pictures of adult-size pitchers and possible
    advise on following hybrids:

    clipeata x rafflesiana - looks like a normal clipeata
    bongso x gymnamphora
    clipeata x (clipeata x eymae)

    The last two I bought in Leiden, the Netherlands last year and
    I think their former owner is registered here. Can't
    remember his name but he is German.

    Cheers,
    Frederick

    Hello and welcome to the forums Frederick!

    This is Tony Paroubek's mature N. clipeata x (clipeata x eymae) I do also grow this plant, but mine is still very tiny and it is a very easy hardy plant.

    Hope that helps.

    Hello Dustin.

    From photos and personal experience, I think it's fair to state
    that clipeata is very dominant in hybrids. Ok, the above
    picture is 75% clipeata, but I expected my clipeata x raffles
    and clip x ventricosa to be intermediate to some extent.
    Makes you wonder how many 'true' clipeatas there are in
    culture. Since hybrids tend to inherit mostly clipeata looks,
    it also makes me think about why they grow in such confined
    areas. Maybe their looks define a very narrow niche in the wild
    and outside this niche, their characteristics are not very
    competetive.
    Just my two Eurocents.

    BTW, where's the introduction page?

    Thanks for the picture,
    Frederick

    Dustin,

    you used the same photo in a previous thread called pictures
    where it is simply named N. clipeata. Which one is it?

    This would be a good thread for you to read about concerning N. clipeata Clip-1 clone and its heritage
    Tony

    Clip-1
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Frederick, read the clip-1 clone topic, the picutre I posted was thought to be the true clipeata but it is now N. clipeata x (clipeata x eymae)

    Hi Frederick,

    The plant I'm growing as N. gymnamphora is propably N. gymnamphora x N. bongso, the opposite cross you're looking for.
