    I received this plant (sorry no pics of this plant yet) called N. Hareliana from Bruce Lee Bednar and have not found a single piece of literature on it. Anyone heard or know of this plant? What are its parent(s)?
    Who made the hybrid and where did it come from (Origin of the hybrid)?

    I have a feeling you're referring to hurrelliana, named after A. Hurrell. It is a Bornean species, intermediate, easy to grow although a bit slow. It has a bit of fusca's pitcher shape with a peristome more like veitchii. I would also venture it's closely related to mollis.

    There are good pictures and a write up in C. Clarke & Chi'en Lee's latest book on Neps of Borneo. It is also referred to as N. species B in one of Charles' books. I have pics of it on my website.

    N hurelliana isn't a hybrid, it's a species from Mt Murud and a few other nearby mountains in Borneo.
    I got a bunch of pics of it just last week so if you give me a few days I'll put them on my site, and you can see what it will look like.
    It's from about 2,200m to 2,500m altitude and likes things fairly shady.

    Very nice peristome and sometimes gets the veitchii climbing habit of wrapping itself around tree trunks.

    He is not referring to N. hurreliana, but N. x hareliana, a lowland hybrid that I think was created by Bruce Lee Bendar. it's cultivar, "Red Skelton" is featured in the Savage Garden under lowland hybrids. I'm not sure about the parentage.

    N. hareliana (1990 Bednar/Bramblett) is N. hachijo x Elaborative Koto.
    N. hachijo = N. mirabilis x thorelii
    N. Elaborative Koto = N. thorelii x Dyeriana.

    N. Dyeriana = N. Dicksoniana x Mixta
    N. Mixta = N. maxima x northiana
    N. Dicksoniana = N. rafflesiana x veitchii

    So, it's really very simple... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Mr. Bednar and Mr. Bramblett were doing some awesome things back in the day. ...I doubt they ever wasted pollen, lol.

    Cheers,
