    Nepenthes aristolochioides X N. lowii

    Both of their bodies have..... [/I]incredibly[I] unique structure... I can't imagine that one or the other would have stronger dominace over that characteristic... I think it might look like a clipeata body, or maybe more like a sanguinea...

    The opening would probably look like sanguinea too... slanted and gaping... I dunno...

    Is there a such thing?

    Try Truncata x Merrilliana! I think I may try to create that hybrid myself and earn my name in Nep history.

    Hi.. I have been reading up a little bit on Nepenthes hybrids lately.
    Its quite possible that two exotic parents can lead to a plain jane mirabilis pitcher child (no offense mirabilis growers, i have one too). And some hybrids just "don't work". For example, its possible that the aristo. (i can't spell it yet) might have a recessive gene that the lowii also has, which might make the child grow even slower (is that possible?) than the lowii. Just some thoughts. I am also going to try my hand at Nepenthes seeds, hybrids, etc, but I just want everyone to know that not everything goes perfectly for every combination.

    PS: I would like to try to cross campanulata with a few other plants.

    Offtopic Question: How long can I store Nepenthes pollen in the fridge? Woudl it be better in the freezer? Just curious>

    Pollen is stored in the freezer in foil packets according to D'Amato.

    One of my fantasy Neps would be hamta x bicalcarata if it were possible to have the fangs and solid red color of bical "red trap" and the pitcher size and sharp toothed peristome of hamata (or even macrophylla/edwardsiana) I suppose edwardsiana would be the easier cross with it's natural red color but just to have a full "toothy mouth" with giant pitchers would just be killer! At least to me it would!

    I don't even know that such a high/low cross could even work out genetically. Are there ever hybrids that just don't work and the plant is just ill and never pitchers or grows well?
