    This is an interresting little guy that showed up in some seed grown N. lowii from Trusmadi. N. lowii is the pod parent. Sorry no scale to go by. It is a 5-6cm wide plant. Pitchers are about 2cm tall.

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

    It's really fascinating how many hybrids and strange forms pop up out of wild-collected seed. Far more than appear in the wild for some reason. in 3 trips to Mt. Trus Madi, I never managed to find a N. x trusmadiensis no matter how hard I looked. And then all of a sudden this hybrid started appearing out of seeds of N. lowii as Tony has said.

    I know how Andreas feels Joachim. I accidentally sent several of those little chaps as N. lowii to a certain person on this forum. When he sent me back a photograph of one of the the pitchers a little while later, I kindly offered to replace them if he were to send back the untrue plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] For some reason though he has so far declined the offer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Hey here's a photo taken last week of a "N. lowii" raised from seed that is now a permanent part of my collection [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Rob,

    That is fantastic! Seeing how macrophylla-like it is looking now, it will be really interesting when it produces upper pitchers, to see what it looks like.

    Regards,

    Joe

    YAY Bonus plants for T since he spotted them first and kept Rob from shipping any more accidently with his N. lowii orders! (I knew I should have ordered more first&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Yes it is very interesting what might pop up on wild collected seed. Even if no hybrids show up, the variation in the species is still exciting to see.

    It makes you wonder if there is in fact a fair amount of cross breeding going on in the wild but survivability is low for the hybrids because they are not adapated as well to the growing conditions. Or if there is really not alot of cross breeding happening and Rob just got incredibly lucky!
