    Question

    I was just wondering if anyone here has a Toilet Lid Nep. I saw them at our local botanical gardens and thought a) wow, those are cool looking and b) Who named this thing! LOL, it's a hybred.

    Darcie,

    Is this a serious, ledgitimate question? I have never heard of such a name, and I have been involved with CP off and on, since 1980.

    Regards,

    Joe

    yes, it is. I just thought it was an extreamly funny thing to read at a profesional gardens. The plant looked to be quite large so I'm guessing the grower had it a long time befor desplaying it. Next time I go I'll try and write down the scientific names... it does sort of look like a toilet without the tank though, and it's red.

    I believe the scientific name is Nepenthes lowii. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] because people have found bird waste in the pitchers, I guess... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Whenever I think of Nepenthes and toilets, N. lowii does come to mind. However, for a mature specimen with upper pitchers to be at a local botanical garden is astonishing(unless it's a major place like the Atlanta Botanical Garden). My next thought was a mature N. ventricosa(didn't you just get a small plant of this?) .What garden is this?

    Regards,

    Joe
