I think we had this question (or a similar one) before.
Chances are the offspring would be kind of dull actually. When you cross two extreme species they often cross each other out, which is reasonable when you think about it logically.
Big + small = medium
You tend to get much more interesting hybrids when you cross species with similar extreme features - something like hamata and edwardsiana or veitchii and jacqu. for example.
If you crossed the two temperamental Truncata's you would create an awesome giant truncata. The highland form is supposed to be bigger than the lowland form! Imagine how big the plant would be...or better yet the pitchers!
N.g., yes i thought of that but the only problem w/ doing so is finding the highland truncata out in the market. only person right now that i can find that has it is Borneo. already got 2 lowland truncatas
