    Also( I'm getting ready to order a large number of nepenthes) what's N. veitchii x lowii's ease of cultivation? And the usual question, its humidity tolerance. Thanks for your help everyone! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    This was posted in the CPDigest a couple years ago by Jason Ashley ..
    "'Holland Hybrid'-- Came from Peter's and he told me that the supplier was
    very secretive about the parentage of this plant. From what I can tell it
    appears to be an alata with some rafflesiana and possibly even some maxima.
    Not having anything but pictures to go by it's hard to tell."

    I would agree on the maxima, rafflesiana.. the rest .. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
    All I could find on it...

    I understood that Holland Hybrid was a nepenthes of "lost" parentage; the original grower didn't know what it was, but thought the pitchers were distinct enough that the plant should be propogated. The same thing is happening now with Nepenthes 'Gentle' from DeRoose. I can't imagine why a grower/hybridizer would possibly want to keep the parentage of a plant secret, but you never know. Oz

    Holland Hybrid is not a register cultivar according to the ICPS so no ifo avialable. I would say N x Alata,Maxima,and Rafflesiana and to me it looks like a little Truncata perhaps.

    It definately has some maxima in it, but I don't know about truncata. I'm going to order this plant soon. Can anyone find out if its highland or lowland? How Large does it get. I'll search(I've checkerd every place) for some more answers.

    I think it is a highland as I recall myself.
