OK Joel, nice of you to pass it on.  Was it Virus who won the plant?  Please give your mailing details to Tony and we'll get the plant to you in the spring.

Another one coming in just a moment.  Joel, this is one you should be able to grow OK

OK here goes. Here are some clues:

a) It's a natural hybrid
b) It is newly discovered
c) This is the first photograph of it ever posted

I will drop a very large hint below of what species Mom was. What you have to do to win this is to give me the the precise name of the other parent.

Here is Mom (except she probably wasn't this red)

I hope all that comes out. Now who was the father???

Ah, Tony just reminded me it's only one plant per person. Virus, you get the N. inermis, courtesy of Joel and the next closest answer to you on this ID was Monkeyman!!
