    Its amazing how much N. Rokko (thorelii x maxima) has been used in recent years. Anyone wants to list/show a photo of their favorite?

    I recently got a N. (Rokko x bicalcarata) x bicalcarata from the diameter of a small woody tree! The grower told me that this will rival the largest N. bical I have ever seen and almost resemble the bical with fangs and all!

    Any other interesting Rokko hybrids you'd like to share?

    I've got a Rokko x veitchii which is very nice. I have a picture of it on my website, although there's a new, much bigger pitcher being produced at the moment that should be quite a sight in a couple of weeks.

    YES Indeed! Rokko x veitchii is a charming plant that is very valuable for breeding as it is showy!

    Its already been used repeatedly for breeding as a producer of very nicely mottled, striped, and colorful pitchers to its offspring.



    I also like N. rokko x spectabilis for the striped peristome and colorful leaves too!

    Did EP make a Rokko x Trusmardiensis yet

    That would be awesome!

    Clyde Bramblett and Bruce Bednar made the hybrid of N. rokko x Mixta and called the cross N. excellens. Out of the grex, they chose two cultivars which are N. excellens 'Superba' and excellens 'Jessica Laureen'. Of course, only orchids can have cross names, and Nepenthes horticultural hyrbids can not be in latin. But they're out there, none the less.
    We have N. rokko x (thorelii x Coccinea) which is really cute.


    N. rokko x ventricosa - a hybrid made by our friend Manny Herrera, has produced a really fine cultivar.

    N. rokko x (thorelii x Coccinea) is really nice.
    Any chance of pictures of the N. (rokko x. bical) x. bical?

    the teeth of bicals seem to be simple resessive, which means you have to cross the primary bical hybrid back with another bical before you get teeth. i have a bical x amp and it doesnt have any teeth at all, not even bumps
