Let's start with some unusual hybrids.

N. eyvelospama (N. (eymae x veitchii) x (lowii x (spathulata x maxima)). The peristome starts out a little stripey but quickly gets this solid bronze color. The next leaf and tendril are MUCH bigger so I'm looking forward to a big next pitcher.

Here's N. Splendiana x Judith Finn. Did anyone else get these to grow? I got seeds, and this was the only one that survived of the two seeds that germinated. It's got nice, elegant pitchers though!

About the same time as I got the above seeds, I got N. Splendiana x Mixta, which I know some others are growing too. This one might be a classic - the deep red really pops in person:

Another seed batch where I got ONE to live, N. spectabilis x (thorellii x aristo)

Here are three clones of N. ventricosa x lowii:

First, the N. Peter D'Amato clone:

Then. N. Atlanta Giant:

Finally, a male sibling to the above clones, (unnamed, so just N. ventricosa x lowii).

An here are some plants out on my deck. It's November so they are not exactly pitchering much right now, but they still grow vigorously. It's funny, these are some of the best growing plants I have, and they are outside year round and my only care is to water them with a hose with city water. It's been years, so I think they're OK with it. Shown are N. ventricosa x aristolochioides (the big one on the left), N. truncata x aristolochioides (broad leaf on right) and a bedraggled N. khasiana.

Finally, a couple quick species:

Nice looking plants ! I have to agree about the N. spendiana x mixta too. Mine are all looking really nice and colorful. So far 2 males.... They have a nice rosette ta boot and seem to hold it their shape pretty long before wanting to vine.
