Part 2 of this round...
Comparison of siblings

N. x splendiana x mixta Clones C and B by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Best peristome this plant has ever sported. Not the biggest pitcher, but the flare, and the ribs...perfect
N. burbidgeae x robcantleyi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Posted an aged pitcher of this in the POTM contest, but can't wait for this trap to get the same colors. It might just be earning a cultivar status of its own.
N. 'Helen' x spectabilis Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. talangensis x robcantleyi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
So much dark, so much to love
N. maxima x talangensis SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also this fat and flashy thing that I have a ton of rooted basals of now
N. Rokko "Exotica" x (spectabilis x mira) by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. Rokko "Exotica" x (spectabilis x mira) by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And a ton of pollen of this
N. Sunset Songs Clone B by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
This one isn't flashy, but it's uncommon and a new species I'm so far succeeding with
N. benstonei by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. benstonei by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. ampullaria "Harlequin" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. ampullaria "Harlequin" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Ever beautiful...and I finally also have the male parent to this cross too!
N. spathulata x jacquelineae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Still not convinced these two are separate species, but the pitchers keep sporting traits that are just different enough that I can't lump them together. This one has a lower hip, darker red colors, and fatter lip...
N. kongkandana by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
While this one never really darkens, stays a little fatter, and has a slender peristome
N. suratensis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And glorious glabrata as always...but I need uppers now!
N. glabrata BE-3257 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. glabrata BE-3257 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Still more to come...

Part 4 for today; this is the other winged tendril raff I've confirmed in the collection so far. Still have 4 that haven't matured enough at all yet to see traits though

I get the feeling that summer will be slightly nicer to this one; leaves are getting bigger, but only just. Pitchers are great though

This thing also needs a repot, again, but I'm finally getting toward giant status with the SG truncata. Just over 10" on this trap!

Part 5 a bit shorter...some glorious uppers are finally showing up on a couple rafflesiana hybrids I have
N. (Viking x rafflesiana) x ventricosa "red" Clone B upper by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. (Viking x rafflesiana) x ventricosa "red" Clone B upper by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. (Viking x rafflesiana) x ventricosa "red" Clone B upper by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Though it's been the slowest and smallest growing so far, I think Clone C here has won my favor. The colors will eventually turn pink and black, and it's got the best TEETH of the three
N. (Viking x rafflesiana) x ventricosa "red" Clone C upper by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. (Viking x rafflesiana) x ventricosa "red" Clone C upper by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

Last but not least, another hamata hybrid that's just starting to take off, and showing a whole lot of promise
N. mirabilis globosa x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. mirabilis globosa x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Especially with the very red leaves it has

TEETH...

Which would you choose? I don't have to....
N. ampullaria "red speckle" SG and "Harlequin" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

Doesn't happen often, but now and again I'll get that famous exudate showing up on the lowii x campanulata
N. lowii x campanulata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Still not quite sure what to make of this plant...but it's not behaving quite like sumatrana so I have to think it's the relative
N. beccariana? Paigaran SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. beccariana? Paigaran Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Glorious seed-grown beauty...waiting for the peristome on the new pitcher to darken like that smaller one though
N. maxima "dark" x talangensis SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

Among some recent new arrivals that are finishing out (for now, until I'm drawn into buying again..) the highland collection
N. attenboroughii by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. attenboroughii by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Since this pic was taken it's thrown out brand new bigger leaves and pitchers already
N. rajah Thomas Alt by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And this one's popped a proper pitcher, though still too small to sport the peristome just yet
N. jacquelineae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. jacquelineae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
This one's also made a whole new leaf
N. robcantleyi 'QOH' x 'KOS' by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. Rokko "Exotica" x ((inermis x singalana) x mira) by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Might be the smallest, but it's my favorite clone
N. (Viking x rafflesiana) x ventricosa "red" Clone C by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Partly because, again, TEETH!
N. (Viking x rafflesiana) x ventricosa "red" Clone C by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And since taking this pic, it's become obvious that 4 of the crosses on this have worked, 2 are dismal...sadly, those two likely failures were the ones I wanted most (bical and platychila...).

An unexpected success in air-layering has resulted in a BE-88 being available...
N. rafflesiana x hemsleyana "Brunei Giant Red" BE-88 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. rafflesiana x hemsleyana "Brunei Giant Red" BE-88 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Another of the exciting new arrivals, already showing positive growth
N. gantungensis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
This one, hasn't moved an inch
N. lingulata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And, going to directly compare for myself now robcantleyi vs. "nebularum;" this plant does show a somewhat longer covering of hairs, but that's not quite enough at the current size to say anything for sure
N. "nebularum" BCP Clone 3 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also seeing positive growth from this exciting plant
N. leonardoi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Small, dark, and handsome
N. ceciliae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
This is suddenly taking off too

Mystery thing looking pretty decent right now
N. BE-3122 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Perhaps, though, I am most excited by this new plant; it's already taking off in my care, showing some of its characteristic hairiness, and something that I really don't see anyone else with yet...especially seed-grown ones :D
N. erucoides SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Came with an exciting freebie too

Dark and glorious...though still small
N. spathulata x gymnamphora by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also completing the toothy menagerie that is likely to actually grow for me (diabolica and villosa probably still outside my reach with evne this new highland tent)...it's already the largest of them too.

Post 1 of this round:
My SG green ampullaria has reestablished itself. If I see new basals show up, there's another rooted piece of this that might become available...
N. ampullaria "green, SG" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Recent trade gave me something really exciting:
N. klossii AW-1 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Stripy!
N. (lowii x talangensis) x vogelii Clone B by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
So far my only cross with my female boschiana; really hope it flowers again soon so I can make more
N. boschiana BE-3448 x (merrilliana x campanulata) Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. boschiana BE-3448 x (merrilliana x campanulata) Clone B by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
That same trade for the klossii also gave me this species that I've been dying to get ahold of for way too long:
N. clipeata "female, Christian Klein" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Different recent acquisition has given me a future giant; not a whit of transport shock either, it's already grown out a new leaf and working on the pitcher
N. bicalcarata Sri Aman by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And another recent grab, finally got the most famous of the Indochinese plants:
N. thorelii AW by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Look close, attenborough's got teeth
N. attenboroughii by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Madagascar's established very nicely, and is starting to grow like a weed!
N. madagascariensis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. madagascariensis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Along with that thorelii, snagged a potential future giant to surpass all giants:
N. rajah x edwardsiana Clone 2 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
My veitchii has finally gotten to the size that it's making truly perfect pitchers
N. veitchii Batu Lawi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And from the teeth that peristome I understand now why people wanted to cross it with hamata and eddy
N. veitchii Batu Lawi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
This one is tiny, and I love it!
N. tenuis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. tenuis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
I put the comparison shots of this pitcher with the old one in the POTM thread, but the new (and bigger) pitcher also sports a "splash" that's present on the other one, but a lot more distinct here
N. rajah x jacquelineae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

Part 2, starting with the glorious new pitcher on burb x platy (damn I need uppers already...)
N. burbidgeae x platychila by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. burbidgeae x platychila by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And my SG truncata x spectabilis is starting to sport some really awesome color; if it keeps this going I can't wait for upper pitchers
N. truncata x spectabilis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. truncata x spectabilis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
My first pitcher to fully develop here on the macrophylla; next leaf is already starting to unfurl too. It's not being slow like I've been told it should be...
N. macrophylla by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Another toothy that is a bit slow, but will hopefully speed up shortly
N. robcantleyi x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. maxima x spectabilis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
The dark pitcher below is the light one above
N. maxima x spectabilis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
thez-yo's cross, both are looking spectacular
N. (sp. Indochina x campanulata) x platychila Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

N. (sp. Indochina x campanulata) x platychila Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. (sp. Indochina x campanulata) x platychila Clone B by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
I really think this one needs a name:
N. 'Helen' x spectabilis PB Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. maxima "dark" x talangensis SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. maxima "dark" x talangensis SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Disappointingly, this new arrival's one good pitcher was on a leaf that broke off in transit. But, a new pitcher is already growing out to replace it
N. robcantleyi x spectabilis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And my monster that is burb x rob is throwing out some amazing stuff. This is off one basal, for some reason sporting massive ribs compared to any other part of the plant:
N. burbidgeae x robcantleyi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Upper off the main vine:
N. burbidgeae x robcantleyi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And a giant off another basal that might be the most voluminous pitcher I've ever grown (almost 9" tall and probably 6-7" wide, peristome not included). If it grows for a bit more though the new pitcher on sumatrana might contend...
N. burbidgeae x robcantleyi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

Post 3 and last for today:
N. platychila x robcantleyi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
I've got lowers, I've got uppers, I need flowers...
N. platychila x robcantleyi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. platychila x robcantleyi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also, while the new burb x rob basal pitcher may be the fattest one I've ever had, and the height record won by a BE sp. 1 pitcher a while back, truncata and this guy are getting close to vying for that latter title
N. rafflesiana x hemsleyana "Brunei Giant Red" BE-88 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. rafflesiana x hemsleyana "Brunei Giant Red" BE-88 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

N. maxima 'Lake Poso' x "Rebecca Soper" Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. Sunset Songs Clone C by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. spathulata x jacquelineae by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
That beautiful female boschiana...
N. boschiana BE-3448 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. boschiana BE-3448 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
robc made a notable pitcher jump with its first one to develop here; it's also sporting the long brown hairs that are *supposedly* a distinct trait of nebularum
N. robcantleyi by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. x splendiana x (eymae x ephippiata) by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. x splendiana x (eymae x ephippiata) by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

Finally getting uppers on this cross; not that different from lowers but just enough that they're brand new interesting
N. gracilis "black" x (merrilliana x campanulata) by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. gracilis "black" x (merrilliana x campanulata) by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And the last lower from thorelii x hamata on the vines it's got currently; the first upper recently opened, teeth did not get bigger as hoped, but the angle of the peristome and the pitcher shape did change from this:
N. thorelii x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And I got a big, color-changing two-faced pitcher from this spectacular cross. If these color densities stay as it matures this might end up one of the best truncata x spectabilis clones I've ever seen
N. truncata x spectabilis SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. truncata x spectabilis SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. truncata x spectabilis SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

N. truncata x spectabilis SG by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. ventricosa x tiveyi Clone B by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. ventricosa x tiveyi Clone B by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Clone C has become a particularly interesting one, and I hope it blooms female; lowers have solid cherry lips, uppers seem consistent in this very light-colored, pink-banded appearance
N. ventricosa x tiveyi Clone C by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

As they get older, kongkandana:
N. kongkandana by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And suratensis are showing very distinctly different growth forms. The former has more slender, "taller" pitchers (particularly in the neck) with thicker peristomes, slightly more slender and hairier leaves, and they're deeper red than this species:
N. suratensis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
My burkei is back to pitchering very nicely again (so long as it doesn't burn tendrils on the light below it)
N. burkei BE-3254 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And promising things already showing quickly from this famous cross
N. lowii x ventricosa "CK Red" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And, here's an amazing happening: been targeting N. naga for a long, long time, finally took a shot and ordered one: and ended up with 3 seed-grown plants, all showing the tongue and potential for dark colors, along with several other free plants!
N. naga SG Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
The biggest one is the lightest, for now...
N. naga SG Clone B by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
But also sports the best tongue
N. naga SG Clone B by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also, this species definitely has a very, very different growth habit in the pitchers from my young bongso.
N. naga SG Clone C by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
FATTAY
N. ventricosa x sibuyanensis Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
glabrata has begun to transition to a vine on at least one growth point, pitchers are also slowly beginning to lengthen
N. glabrata BE-3257 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And the rob x max cross is throwing out showstoppers left and right
N. robcantleyi x maxima BE-3428 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Finally have this chunky thing back (or, had pectinata before, so at least something in the complex)
N. gymnamphora Gunung Talakmau by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And the pitchers on this behemoth are now routinely exceeding 9" tall
N. rafflesiana x hemsleyana "Brunei Giant Red" BE-88 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. rafflesiana x hemsleyana "Brunei Giant Red" BE-88 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. rafflesiana x hemsleyana "Brunei Giant Red" BE-88 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Not the biggest, but in shape (particularly the peristome) one of the best looking boschiana pitchers I've had
N. boschiana BE-3448 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Just look at that flare...
N. boschiana BE-3448 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. boschiana BE-3448 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And to finish off, that chunky vent x sib pitcher next to a huge lower from maxima x spectabilis

Your boschiana(s) look great! You know how I feel about that Raff x Hemsleyana, what a great color and shape! If you feel like that vine is getting too long, I wouldn't mind buying a cutting.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow! What a collection. I tried to pick my favorite and about had a stroke. Those ventricosa x tiveyi are amazing! And I am just getting started trying to breed spectabilis so I am very jealous of your beautiful clones.

That x spendiana (eymae x epiphiata) has a wild body pattern. I am a huge fan.

Random, but I think I got a 'Rokko' cross cutting from you a while ago; it's doing great :)

The only cutting I'm liable to make of that plant for a long time already went out to someone else several months ago. I'm not likely to think about putting a razor to it again until either I figure out how to make it flower or unless it throws a bunch of basals somewhere.

Finally got it back...and got platychila at the same time. Both already growing fast...
N. vogelii by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
An extremely promising cross that is starting to gain size...I had 3 sprouts, all are very red but all notably different
N. albomarginata "red" x (lowii x campanulata) Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
A freebie (one of several I got unexpectedly in one go) that's making its first pitchers

Old classic, still beautiful
N. "Miranda" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
This plant was a mystery freebie that I thought was the same as the (hopefully) stenophylla I got labeled as such. As it's matured...very obviously not steno. I do hope the one that was labeled as steno though proves out and doesn't turn into this

Honestly this plant looks like what I'd expect if you crossed sanguinea or ramispina with tentaculata

Finally got my Sri Lanka representative...
N. distillatoria by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And mira has suddenly been throwing out pitchers bigger than its leaves for me
N. mira by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. sp. BE-3122 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also appear to have no issues with diatas which is supposed to be picky... the even newer pitcher was bigger, more colorful, toothier, but I think I overfed it by trying to give the first osmocote pellet to it
N. diatas by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Seychelles representative also doing decent, though still has fits of not pitchering and getting smaller between its good leaves
N. pervillei by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

Another lowlander doing surprisingly well; every new leaf has gotten bigger
N. northiana by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. x hookeriana "Sajingan" Clone A by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Another new arrival

glabrata is well into vining, but the summer heat I think is holding it back from making uppers yet, urgh...
N. glabrata BE-3257 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

More to come...

N. 'Helen' x spectabilis PB Clone B by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Kind of wish I had waited to enter this pitcher into the POTM...found it between the pots so the peristome is stuck open and will stay flared as it darkens

Finally worth sharing this, as pitchers are beginning to show teeth...and it may be the fastest growing toothy plant I have

Still haven't convinced this thing to flower, but it forced me to cut it back again so hopefully I'll get some rooted cuttings soon
N. 'Autumn Wine' by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. madagascariensis by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Also thus far this thing is growing like a weed; I hope it starts putting on size though

A much toothier hybrid than I expected it would be
N. mirabilis globosa x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And an upper that was less toothy than I hoped, but still nice
N. thorelii x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. thorelii x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
N. thorelii x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
I think I like the lowers better
N. thorelii x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
The 2nd upper colored up rather oddly though
N. thorelii x hamata by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
And, since the cutting failed, I found a place to finally get this weirdo back in the collection. Would love to try and cross it with the other hamata hybrids I've got...

First pitcher of glandulifera here

Two exciting plants (mollis sitting next to it); I'd love to see what a cross between would look like

Received these as "miniature" maxima, which means some people would try calling them "minima" (doesn't exist)
