Hello all! I'm new around here. I wanted to get a thread going on all the named Leilani greges. As you well know, Leilani produced many notable greges and cultivars over the years. Much of Leilani's website is now defunct and information on their plants scattered across the internet. Being a relatively new grower myself, I wanted to crowd-source a comprehensive list of Leilani Nepenthes to make this information more accessible. Here goes:

Sadly, don't have any Leilani plants that I know of currently (not even offspring). Want to get ahold of Hamakua "Ninole" at some point...
One edit: the multiple term for grex is typically greges, not grexes.

Thanks for the correction. I've read it both ways but never knew which was correct.

Hamakua 'Ninole' has such unique pitcher bodies. Its instantly recognizable as a Leilani plant. Putting this list together definitely gave me a deeper appreciation for all of the Leilani Nepenthes out there. I just got my hands on a cutting of Dormouse from Florae. I hope Sarracenia Northwest sells some more cuttings at some point. They seem to have a lot of the poplar ones like Song of Melancholy and Whisper.
