    It's my understanding that the other parent/s are unknown.

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

    I think ( I could be wrong) that GEORGE-CP mentioned once that he managed to track down what "may" be the parentage of this plant.

    Speaking of George... has anyone heard from him?
    I typo, therefore I edit.

    I belive the other parent is veitchii but then that would mean that this would turn out to be a n. x tiveyi but probably its a form of tiveyi .

    I'm afraid it was love at first sight for me with this one, its very rare for me to go into a general garden center and be smitten by a CP. Luckly the store had just received their CPs from Holland that day, so it hadn't had months of abuse.

    As well as the wide peristome and beautiful markings, the pitchers of N. 'Gentle' are very pubescent, giving them a soft, (gentle?) furry feel.

    Hi Vic
    Nice Nep [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    Was the garden centre an independant or part of a chain?

    Hi Bill

    The garden centre was Frost's in Brampton, Cambridgeshire, UK. Part of a fairly small chain in my part of England, based near Milton Keanes (I think), I'm not sure if they go as far South as you live. I bought this plant a couple of months ago, I imagine that if they have any left, they will be in a sorry state by now, I was just lucky to get it shortly after in was shipped over from Holland.
