    Hello,

    I have been growing N. x burbidgeae x edwardsiana for a while now and just wanted to see what other peoples thoughts are about it.

    Mine seem to be a slower growing Nepenthes, it's newest pitcher is just at 4 inches with a 6 1/2 inch tendril and 3 3/4 inch leaf. I will try and post a photo of the plant later this week.

    I think it is turning into one of the neatest looking hybrids I have seen.

    It is a seed grown plant right?

    thanks
    -Jeremiah-

    Jeremiah,

    That particular hybrid is a tissue culture clone from a single individual. It was collected from a female burbidgeae for burbidgeae TC, but this one turned out to be a hybrid with edwardsiana. Accordingly, all plants in cultivation are the same.

    I find it to be an exciting hybrid! N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana grows well for me in partial full sun. It receives full direct rays from sunrose/morning to about 1-2pm and is shaded just before the heat of the day shines down on them. Many plants have a pitchers developing. Its interesting to note if they all did came from the same clone, why each of my individual plants are so variable in pitcher shape, coloration and even size. Here is a shot of a larger plant with good size pitchers (for a small plant).

    Michael,

    My information from Malesiana is that this was a freak, one-off individual that popped up in a batch of burbidgeae.

    This hybrid does tend to change as it matures, when it's younger the edwardsiana traits are not so strong, they tend to come out more as it ages. I've seen this phenomenon in other hybrids which shift between parental traits as they grow (and occasionally seem to morph a bit due to environmental or other factors).

    I too have noticed differences. I got 3 plants from MT in 2004. All 3 were quite sick on arrival [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] One died without growing. Another grew for about 6 months before dieing, the third touch wood is doing well. But the peristrome on the one that grew and them died was far more raised and toothed than the remaing plant. None of the slightly more mature pitchers on this third plant show this effect. Why might this be? As I would not have expected to see much peristrome development did the plant grew bigger anyway.

    Still I look forward to seeing more mature pitchers as time goes on.

    cheers

    Perhaps there might be more than one tc clone of this. I am still on the belief that these are different individuals. One has pitchers more elongated, but definitely edwardsiana traits. I will try and photograph them side by side for comparison.

    Mine is also slow at growing and making pitchers. Mine suffered mite damaged and stopped growing, but now it is starting to pitcher again. I find that if I move the developing pitcher buds they don't grow and just dry up. The leaves are very stiff, and the tendrils seem to be very long compared to the size of the plant.

    I have a few plants that are large, but never pitchered and all were from the original MT clone. If there is just one starter clone. I have also noticed that their N. veitchii Bareo is also varied. I have had plants with solid red peristomes and also ones with green variegated with red stripes, and even yellow with red striped peristomes. Plus one of them is variegated with red streaks in their foliage.

    The burbidgeae x edwardsiana plants seem all too different to be from one origin. Even EP's clone pictured seemed a lot redder than I have ever seen before on any of mine. Maybe there were more than one clone floating around.
