    General accepted practice is to list the female first.

    Another interesting trait I've noticed in some hybrids is variability in the same plants. I have hybrid Neps where the pitchers sometimes resemble more the pod parent, and sometimes the pollen parent. I've seen this with thorelii x truncata for example, where the lowers are sometimes like giant thorelii pitchers, and other times more like red truncata pitchers.

    Interesting Hamish! Perhaps changes in environment might bring out one parents traits over the other. There is deffinately a change as plants mature and as they change from lower to intermediate to upper as well.

    I'm not sure what does it, it could be environmental as changes that suits one parent's genes triggers those to be dominant. I was just checking a maxima x veitchii that I have, and the newest pitcher has a strong maxima influence, the pitcher being quite cylindrical like maxima, with the veitchii influence being the peristome. The previous pitcher was the most veitchii-like I've seen, with a much longer peristome neck, and with a squatter pitcher more reminiscent of veitchii. Hmmmm....

    Gotta back up what Michael was saying about trunc x vent. and vent x trunc. We have both hybrids. Our trunc x ventricosa is a single large plant, but we have a number of seedlings of ventricosa x truncata from EP. Overall, in a generalized sort of way, the Vent x trunc is a little more ventricosa influenced, even though some of the sibling exhibit a more elongated pitcher (truncata like). But, our large truncata x ventricosa has a slightly more ventricosa like lower trap and a more trunc like upper, and occasionally pitchers show a narrowed waist....hmmmm indeed!
