I'll start things off this month with a seegrown Nepenthes rafflesiana Bruni Squat x (Kondo x Singapore Giant 6). I'll update with some more pictures later.

Well, I guess lazy little Nepenthes fusca has a month to get growing already.
That lowii x campy could be the weirdest pitcher I've ever seen. :clap:

N. spathulata x veitchii (x Judith Finn)
Daaaang! That lowii x campy is SWEET! I've been wanting one of those for a while! I have a spathulata x spectabilis thats about to flower.. Not sure of it's sex yet though.. I can just see the buds starting to poke out at the growth tip. I've never dealt with a flower before..

when I can get a cutting or Basal from my l x c we can Talk East
  • #11
I updated some pics of the raff. Nice entries everyone! I don't think I've seen such a bright yellow lowii x campy before.
  • #13
Nice! Looks almost like a pink clipeata.
  • #14
Nice plant and a great cultivar name, mcnair!
  • #15
Thanks guys. So far Princess Bubblegum is by far my favorite of all the Adventure Time! series. It really has turned into a beautiful little plant.

I think Red Lowii's entry is mislabeled. The photo says lowii x (spathulata x maxima) at the bottom and before it said lowii x carunculata var. robusta. Still a wonderful entry nonetheless.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. Hopefully Lowii x Inermis can someday be created, potentially could become the first uniquely peristome-less lowii cross.

mcmcair, the photo was thrown in haste unedited into a photoshop template that i use for all my POTM entries and therefore bears the name of my previous month's POTM entry. I'm not sure where you got lowii x carun from, maybe some wishful thinking, would be quite a nice cross for lowers, uppers would be rather green though. I've got a select clone of carun x tm from EP purchased from cutting and it's a bit of a pale one & lacks the tm peristome.
  • #17
Idk where I got that either red lowii :) beautiful plant! I wish my lowii x campy looked like that
  • #18
Great plants all so far! Decided to try entering this once:
N. ventricosa x gymnamphora

  • #20
That Lowii x Campanulata is absurd. I've not seen anything quite like it.

I may enter this month. We'll see if I can get my technology to cooperate.
