    Well, Max, I would have to look closer to be absolutely sure, but I am pretty sure your Predator is outgrowing mine(though I did give you the larger one ) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    Anyway it looks really good.

    Cheers,

    The plants are looking quite good to me Max!


    N. burkei x villosa? Had not been aware that existed, or any other man made N. villosa hybrids. Any other information on it's origins? Really looks alot like intermediate N. ventricosa x lowii to me.
    BTW I think just about every N. burkei cross out there is in actuality a N. ventricosa cross.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Tony,
    I have the same suspicions as you, and figured at best I'd have a difficult to grow ventricosa.

    I've not seen the intermediates on ventricosa x lowii so I cannot comment on that. I got the cutting from an unknown donor at the BACPS meeting about 9 months ago. There are usually a few hard-to-find cuttings there, so that it's unusual is not, well, unusual. Nevertheless, I agree with your assessment, but cannot explain why it would be mislabeled. Oh well, I guess as it matures we'll get a better idea of what it is.

    Griffin, if your rowanae was a small plant, then it would be less likely to reshoot from the base, so probably no need to regret your decision. If it was a large plant like mine with a very large root ball, that would be a different matter.

    I'm drooling over that Predator. I forget what the parentage is, it's truncata and hamata right? I forget...

    Oh, man! I hope my hamata does that (basal shoots, I mean)! It's growing like gangbusters under my new fluorex light fixtures....I'll have to go over the moss with a fine toothed comb when I get home....

    Sweet (suspicious) burkeii x villosa! I love the coloring.
