Not Growing Up!
Warning!
Like me, this list is old & outdated!

Have List: (Not updated nor up to date!)

Nepenthes Hybrid (Unidentified) about 18 years old!

(I had sent pics and samples to a few suppliers/friends, who said it looked to be an old Victorian type hybrid and suggested a possible parentage...
I tried having it identified long ago, and this is what folks came up with:
Parents possibly N.Ventrata or N.Thorelli... or it might be a hybrid Edinensis x Ventrata by Leo Song (Andrew Marshall).
Bruce Lee Bednar thought it to be N.Mixta Var. Sanguinea x Williamsii from Longwood, or N.Chelsonii x Mixta Superba by Song.
Clyde Bramblett thought it to be Chelsonii x Irregulata from John D. Kanal, Longwood. (Shown)
