And is that a hybrid or a pure species
Need all the experience I can get...
Viking could possibly be a new species, it has not been scientifically described. There is some controversy surrounding these attractive plants as to what they are. All we can offer is our opinion that they are a subspecies of N. mirabilis, or a new species closely related to N. mirabilis (much like N. rowanae of Queensland Australia).
i don't see why mirabilis. i see rafflesiana
It looks like it has traits of N. rafflesiana, ampullaria, bicalcarata, and mirabilis if you ask me. Dont all four of those plants grow together in some areas? Does viking have a dormancy like N. rowanae?
N. bicalcarata is endemic to Borneo. *I don't see how N. sp. viking has traits of N. bicalcarata or N. ampullaria. *It is, however, strikingly similiar to N. rafflesiana in some regards.
Having said that, I am partial to the theory that it is a new species.
Oh, and very nice plants, Trent. *=)
no species in the genus have a dormancy.
