    N. burbidegea x edwardsiana
    N. (spath x spect) x ( max x fusca) pictured below

    I rather like the (tobica x ovata) x veitchii I picked up recently and pics of mature plants are stunning.

    I am also suprised no one has mentioned spathulata or any hybrids with it. The almost metallic purple peristome is beautiful.

    We've got spathulata x truncata, and it has that purple metallic looking peristome. It's very hard to capture with a camera.

    I've always thought morganiana was nice. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Possible future hybrids of some nepenthes desirable for your collection:

    N. rajah x hamata
    N. edwardsiana x hamata
    N. lowii x hamata
    N. macrophylla x hamata
    N. villosa x hamata
    N. platychila x hamata
    N. Alisaputrana x hamata
    N. Kinabaluensis x hamata
    N. Trusmardiensis x hamata

    See a pattern developing here?

    Now replace regular hamata with fuzzy hamata and let's do this all over again!

    Hmmmm, this jury is still out on hamata hybrids, the 3 that I've seen all have the hamata peristome highly supressed, at least in lowers. I think it could be a good hybridiser for other species with a prominent peristome like villosa, macrophylla, edwardsiana, and even diatas. Where peristomes are reduced or smooth in the partner, I think the traits will be quashed.

    Still want to see the best of the lowland crossed to the best of the highland. Neps for everyone! How about (northiana x rajah), and the reciprocal for sheer size and show.
