    I have just completed the first pass on polinating the N. aristolochoides x thorelii X Miranda (maxima x northiana x maxima). There are about 10-12 flowers which have had their stigmas dusted, there is clearly much more pollen than needed by the tiny female flowers of the aristo x thor plant. at least it seems so. I will do another pass in a day or so as advised by Trent (thanks again man!). I have another dozen flowers or so which can be pollinated in a few days with different pollen so I may also do fusca (Tambunan road) x aristolochioides x thorelii, I'm not sure that would make a very interesting plant seeing as the pitchers are rather similar in shape/pattern.

    Since I had cut off three male Miranda flowers I thought I would show you what a twin flower stalk from N. miranda looks like. Unfortunatley the polka dot pattern on the sepals didn't come through on the reduction in file size...



    Edit: I forgot, I made a quick sketch last night at work of what I hope the hybrid will look like featuring the best attributes of each parent.

    Good stuff Josh. Best of luck with it.

    Do you have photos of the parent plants/pitchers?

    Aaron.

    Edit: Never mind, I just hopped on to your web site and found them.

    i really cant wait to see what those will actually look like. i wish i could talk the OL ppl to let me take a couple of cuttings of the big plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] most have just gotten done flowering in the last couple months and i could get some plants that are definatly female. suppose if i slip them a $50? lol i can dream cant I? good luck with it. i think it will be one heck of a cross. now if Pyro's khansiana sets seed ill have couple of lil bitty khansiana x Miranda plants in 6 months, prolly wont be as impressive though.

    Josh,
    That will definitely be an interesting cross. Something that complex could yield a range of pitcher shapes and colorations. Thorelii passes red coloration for at least a couple of generations. How the aristo. will affect things is totally unknown-except it does seem to have a fairly strong impact on pitcher shape, judging from the few primary hybrids that have been made in Australia. It should also grow well under a wide range of conditions-both highland and lowland. Also, some of the progeny could be large growers, taking after daddy. I've seen plants of bellii x veitchii with pitchers larger than veitchii-explain that one!

    Hey Josh,
    Sounds really cool! Love a good mystery. I bet that the offspring will most likely vary dramatically, with some closely resembling one parrent, some the other, and most somewhere in between...Who knows? Maybe you'll get something worthy of a cultivar status...

    Rattler,
    I actually think that should be a good cross, too. Khasiana crosses aren't given enough credit in my opinion.
