    I like truncata x ventricosa. It's super hardy, fast growing, and puts out huge pitchers. N. ventricosa x lowii is really nice, as Tony said. Of the nearly unobtainable or impossible to obtain (besides the ones already mentioned), rajah x burbidgea and stenophylla x rajah are spectacular.

    The things that we will soon see in the near future is primary power crosses. WE've already been experiencing these already (parents such as stenophylla x lowii, northiana x veitchii, spectabilis x northiana, etc. when crossed to even bland species have turned into super hybrids.). Some exciting examples of future super primaries will include anything with any one of these primaries in it:
    N. lowii x ventricosa red
    N. Trusmardiensis (lowii x macrophylla)
    N. lowii x veitchii
    N. eymae x spectabilis
    N. eymae x veitchii
    N. spectabilis x ventricosa dark red
    N. bellii x spectabilis
    N. bellii x Trusmardiensis
    N. truncata x hamata
    N. Rokko (thorelii x maxima)
    and so forth.

    Just to cross these even with a common ventricosa would create a super plant with not only vigor but with the potential of being a very sought after clone.
    Exotica Plants will still be the leader in producing these super hybrids, although the Japanese are also following suit with some work in the US.

    Lowii hybrids are very nice like.. N.veitchii x lowii or N.lowii x truncata is another great Nepenthes.

    I have seen N. X mastersiana only once. D'Amato has it in his establishment, and holds it as his treasure. Pete told me that cuttings are difficult off of N. X mastersiana, but I have no experience of my own to speak from. Capslock, hope you can root these babies!!!!

    Bruce Lee Bednar told me the difficulty in rooting lies with it's N. khasiana parentage..The N. sanguinea parentage makes it grow great once you get it going.

    I have to vote for either trunata x ventricosa (size is impressive, and wild candy striped peristome) or spectabalis x spathulata which has really GREAT coloration.
