    im looking for some outstanding showy hybrids, or just plain interesting to look at ones. the N. jacquelineae x izumiae i have is quite interesting and the N. eymae x vietchii that i just got looks really cool if alot like my N. vietchii(im told the uppers will be really cool). i like the large, flairing peristromes that have lots of color. the various vietchii and maxima crosses floating around are sure showy. anyone have pictures of their awesome hybrids?

    Noteworthy ones are
    N. x dyeriana
    N. x Mixta
    N. x Tiveyi
    N. x Trusmadiensis
    N. x Kinabalensis
    N. veitchii x lowii
    All spectabilis crosses
    All veitchii crosses
    All maxima and northiana crosses.

    Pretty rough, but generic list.

    Nice list, Dustin. Might I add N. mastersiana.
    Also, maxima-vietchii-northiana are three species that combine well. There's fantastic color variation in Geoff Mansell's hybrids using Tiveyi, Mixta, (northiana x veitchii) recombined in different crosses with the root species.
    Also, using a nice large, deeply colored N. thorelii will pass on the rich color, as well as other desirable characteristics.

    Good stuff above. I also love my aristo hybrids, and the thorelli x aristo is one of my fastest growing plants, with pitchers that have lasted over a year for me.

    I also love the clone of maxima x ventricosa I have. Common but really nice.

    I hope to have N. x Mastersiana cuttings to distribute within a year, too.

    OH gosh.. so many to choose from! Great recommendations.

    I am a big N. spectablilis fan and it's use in hybrids. One of those that gets the best from both sides. N. spectabilis x veitchii. Another beauty that just combines the best of both. N. ventricosa x lowii

    Another that is just super.. N. spectabilis x talangensis
    how about N. spectabilis x ventricosa? Or N. maxima x talangensis?? or N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana AHHHH I can't decide!

    You would be surprised though what you can get with some combinations. Another I like that really isn't all that esoteric ..

    The problem however is getting some of these things. Many are by cutting only unless it is something from TC or seed that is still floating around.

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

    Even maxima x fusca gives interesting results

    A day without Nepenthes is like a day without sunshine
