    Hi,

    I decided not to clog up Swords' orignal posting on N. jacquelineae with a bunch of photos that perhaps everyone wouldn't want to spend time downoading, so here's a new thread.

    There was some talk of a possible hybrid between N. jacqueliniae & N. izumiae. The weather up here in the highlands has been just awful but the clouds parted for a few moments today so I grabbed my camera and ran for the nursery.

    Hmmm... where to look?




    aha! here we are, a little gem, even at only 3" diameter. The pitchers are unmistakeable...




    and here's a closeup of the pitcher, sort of held in one hand with the camera in the other - sorry about that...




    here's another seedling grown from seed from the same parent. Different isn't it?




    here's a wobbly closeup of the pitcher...



    So, although it is not documented as far as I know, it would seem that a natural hybrid between N. jacqueliniae and N. izumiae probably does exist.

    Cheers,

    Is that first pic just to make us jealous? *pouts in corner about not living in/near the highland* (Sorry, I had to do that) But honestly nice pictures, and An excellent way to show everyone that seed grown shows differences not commonly found in tissue culture... THANKS!!

    The plant in picture #2 must be the cutest Nep that I've ever seen! Maybe one day I'll have a house in the mountains where i can grow one. Until then great pictures!

    Snowy and I would make a great team... sweepin' up!

    What are the yellow papers hanging from the ceiling? They look like buddhist prayer flags or fly paper...
    Is fly paper necessary... under the circumstances?
