    Aaron:

    Have a look at Nepenthes University in the hybrid section. And read the other fine print at the top. or Ctrl F and search for the word 'victorian'.
    I have a book with information on N.x Rokko. One might be worth purchasing. Or unless you want a photo copy of the page.

    It's OK Christian. I'll read it when I drop in this week [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the info Trent & Rattler. Pretty much what I was looking for.

    My plant is a scraggly cutting with no pitchers and about 3-4 leaves, so I'll based on the reports of how fast of a grower it is I should have something a bit nicer in a few months.

    Hi Gang,

    Long time no posting!

    Life's kept my pretty busy so my forum-time has lessened. Never fear though, I do still look in every few weeks.

    Anyway, thought I'd update this thread with a pic of the first pitcher (an upper) to form on my new cutting. Not quite as colourful as I'd expected but I like it none the less.



    How does it compare to other's N. xRokko?

    Aaron.

    Aaron,
    Mine is a little bit redder. This is an upper pitcher on mine (with another about to open in back), which I just hacked back today to send cuttings out. I'm currently getting a big lower, which would be my first lower pitcher, so I don't know how those look yet.

    Interesting Caps. Sure looks nice with the heavier red. Pitcher shape is identical!

    How long has that pitcher been open. Mine may colour up as it ages give it only opened a few days ago.

    May also be that mine is still settling in to its new home (bare rooted cutting received and planted mid December 04).

    Do you know if yours is male or female?

    Aaron.

    Aaron,

    The pitcher in the picture (lol) opened some time before the photo. They do color up over time, but I think mine are redder than yours at any stage. I like the way your red lid contrasts with the rest of it, though.

    I believe my plant is a female, as I bought it on Ebay, and the guy I bought it from is selling another cutting right now on Ebay from his plant and is advertising it as female. I just hacked the main vine back on mine, though, so it will be a while before I see a flower.

    I would expect there to be variation in Rokkos, as they are a hybrid, not a cultivar, as someone mentioned earlier.
