    Trent, love your version of thorelii x (spect x north). I have one with a more mottled pitcher, more squat with a really cool striped peristome. I also like EP's N. truncata x (spect x north) with its awesome striped peristome that varies from green with candy cane stripes to almost a peachy orange with saltwater taffy red stripes over it. What I like about the truncata cross is its compact foliage, my thorelii cross of the same tend to have longer leaves.

    Hey did you get one of EP's N. thorelii x sibuyanensis? Now talk about a squat fat-looking thorelii! I assume like all the other sibuyanensis crosses they will get huge in time!

    Hi All,

    Yes Jess and Julian, we didn't know that N. distillatoria could get that big either. It's getting into raff catagory...

    Robin, our N. bical started to produce upper traps when the vine was about five feet tall. Now, it's vine is not climbing straight upwards like a tree (but we've seen bicals grow like a tree too) but the weight of the pitchers pulled the vine down and it fell below pot level and continued to grow upward. The vine has taken over the middle of an aisle in our greenhouse and now is as tall as eye level for me. Since the vine is hanging down below the pot, it threw at least seven or eight ground shoots.

    Michelle has been in the greenhouse taking a lot of pics and portraits.

    This is N. thorelii d from EP. Notice the prominent flared peristome, typical of all the seedlings from this grex.

    Here are some pics of interesting hybrids.


    Michael, here is our favorite N. truncata x (spec x north). We have two other seedlings, one is green/yellow with stripes as you described, and the other has red/maroon leaves and magenta/purple pitchers. Can't wait until these mature.



    Here are two siblings of the hybrid of N. (thorelii x Mixta) x sumatrana. Another wonderful and variable cross from EP.



    Here is one of our favorite crosses from EP. It's N. [(thorelii x rafflesiana) x thorelii] x veitchii h/l. On the left is the intermediate pitcher and on the right is a portrait of the uppers (one freshly opened).

    Our friend Manny Herrera made this hybrid of N. thorelii x (mirabilis x khasiana). This is the cultivar from the cross, it's going to be registered as N. 'Kristin Ammar' (who had a bikini the same color).


    Have a great 4th!

    EP = Exotica Plants
    BE= Borneo Exotics
    MT = Malesiana Tropicals
    CE = Captive Exotics
    CC = Charles Clarke
    CL = Ch'ien Lee

    Who did I forget?

    BTW (=by the way), Trent, seems like we have the same crosses from EP. Its always hind sight when after you purchase a particular cross and as they grow, I wish i got more then. Oh well. Who knew that something with thorelii 2x's and rafflesiana AND veitchii could be so beautiful!

    I got a few N. macfarlanei (both red and purple) crossed with sibuyanensis that is turning out just gorgeous and huge. Another cross that seems so simple is the cross between N. spectabilis x veitchii. Its one of my favorites!

    Wait until I get my new camera, I'll show ya!

    Have a Happy Fourth everyone!
