    I have a Mixta x Maxima which is a wicked grower ,the pitchers have a red and yellowish striped peristome ,but it does go fairly red with lots of light.

    Julian,
    What is interesting is you called your plant (mixta x maxima). This would imply that a female mixta was used. (seedbearer is always listed first when labeling a hybrid). The Japanese hybrid N. oiso supposedly used female Mixta, and is published as (Mixta x maxima). N. 'Miranda' appears to be the reciprocal, (maxima x Mixta).

    Hi Trent
    I believe the female was a Mixta and that the pollen was from a maxima but as to what the exact parentage is is anyones guess.

    Old threads never die, they just wait for someone looking for the info. I'll say Dyeriana is exceptional looking.


    How about some pics of the other Victorian hybrids that are still around?

    That's a real beauty...the one on the right, that is.

    Seriously, very nice plant, Steve.

    Hi,

    I know of one UK grower who has a large N.x tiveyi growing from a cutting of one of the original Victorian crosses (obtained from Kew many years ago). Several cutting are coming through now and soon there will be two UK growers.

    Threeskins:
    Very interesting. Would it be possible to post a picture of the original tiveyi so we can see what it looks like and how it compares to the modern remakes?

    Hi Bob,

    Yes I can get a pic of this plant to you. Not sure how to add it to this forum. Can I send you pic on a private PM maybe you could add it here?

    Cheers
