    Very nice hybrid Caps.

    Not quite N. ventrata x rafflesiana, but I have N. ventricosa x rafflesiana that I recently found at a nursery. This shot was from the day I got it:



    This plant seems up there with the easiest I have and IMO is much like what you want from a hybrid. It's growing at the rate of a ventricosa, but with pitchers very much like a raff (i.e. steep peristome, large wings, teardrop shaped pitchers, etc).

    Admittedly I have no real problems growing pure vents or raffs in my setup, so i'd have expexcted nothing less from this hybrid.

    The plant is still recovering from it's previous kept in poor conditions (AKA non-cp nursery) and I am very much looking forward to seeing how it turns out once it really gets going and I get some better size/colour out of the leaves and pitchers.

    Aaron.

    Thats a nice one too. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    *sighs* I want a hybrid hehe but I guess I should have more experience with the one I have now before I buy another one.

    I also can relate to bad previous owners. Mine wasn't getting enough water and humidity and one of the pitchers was cut in half! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] But it is doing much better and recovering now. whew!

    Wow! That is awesome! Stuff like that is probably out of my price range though...

    Nepenthes definitely exhibit hybrid vigor. It seems the strongest, easiest growers are hybrids between a lowland x highland. N. Mixta is the perfect example: maxima x northiana. Its been around for more than 100 years and grows vigorously in both lowland and highland conditions.
    I would like to see more breeding along lines that emphasize certain shapes and colors, say echinostoma x ramispina, or rafflesiana x burbidgea.

    Just along the lines of the aristolochioides x thorelli hybrid... They look a lot more like an aristo with the coming of upper pitchers... Take a look at mine! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I also have a ventricosa x talangensis, it's pretty cool!

    [(Hamata x Lowii) Bicalcurata]
    i would want to see such a hybrid, it would be so cool to see these all put together...
    With hybrids with bicalcarata in it, you tend to not see any bical. Bicals dont really show in hybrids. you probably wouldn't get any fangs at all
