Own cross. The combination of Nepenthes inermis and Nepenthes sibuyanensis promises interestingly shaped and large pitchers. The young plants show a distinctly "bottle-like" shape - a typical characteristic of Nepenthes inermis.
Nepenthes pitopangii hybrids are still very rare. The lower pitchers are very compact and bulbous with a mostly red base coloration, which is however very variable. The peristome is slightly oval and ribbed, as in Nepenthes burkei. Nepenthes burkei also shows bulbous lower pitchers with a distinct hip and green coloration with red spots. The peristome is red and serrated. To be expected are compact lowers with a probably red peristome and green-red can body.The upper pitchers will be really interesting as they are extremely funnel shaped in Nepenthes pitopangii. How much will this be seen in the high pitchers of this hybrid? It remains to be seen.
A hybrid that already shows compact bulbous pitchers with a broad, (dark) red peristome in the base pitchers. Already other N. lowii hybrids show that elongated pitchers in combination with N. lowii upper pitchers become strongly funnel-shaped. Here you have the exceptional vigour of N. copelandii in combination with N. lowii and can look forward to a problem-free hybrid with red, funnel-shaped uppers.
A completely new cross with very interesting parents.I am very curious to see how the seedlings develop further. Given the decidedly interesting pitcher shape of Nepenthes dubia, I see great potential here.
The first commercially available cross with Nepenthes epiphytica. The interesting elongated shape of the pitcher of N. epiphytica and the extreme peristome of N. mollis. Provided the two characteristics manifest themselves in the cross, we have a real winner!
Due to the novelty of this hybrid it is difficult to estimate what results this cross will really show. We can expect a hairy, nectary plant with dark, elongated pitcher and dark, striped peristome. It is hoped that the hybrid will take on the size of veitchii x lowii. Also the shape of the upper pitchers of veitchii x lowii with glandulifera influence could be interesting!
Nepenthes glandulifera x edwardsiana promises to be a vigorous cross with the unique serrated peristome of N. edwardsiana.I am very excited about the development of the seedlings and see great potential.
A cross between two heavily hairy Nepenthes species.The distinctive nectaries of N. glandulifera are found here in abundance on the leaves and the tendrils. The peristome is raised and intensely dark striped. The pitcher body dark with light spots. The hybrid shows the typical white colouring of N. glandulifera under the peristome.
Nepenthes glandulifera x spectabilis as a hybrid shows a slight pubescence of N. glandulifera, the characteristic contrasting striped peristome and spot colouring of N. spectabilis, which is however red, and a slightly funnel-shaped pitcher. Hair on the underside of the leaves also shows up in very young plants. New, attractive hybrid of two characteristic species.
New cross of Nepenthes talangensis x glandulifera. The parent species of this hybrid both look relatively similar. Both have a funnel-shaped pitcher, a large oval pitcher opening, with a raised peristome and a fine spotted pattern on a lighter background. However, the peristome of Nepenthes talangensis is inwardly descending and broader than that of N. glandulifera and N. glandulifera has significantly more hairs distributed throughout the plant.
Nepenthes glandulifera x Trusmadiensis (= Nepenthes glandulifera x (lowii x macrophylla))Normally crosses with Nepenthes trusmadiensis are characterized by pronounced peristome, large and colorful pitchers and good vigor. The plants are still small but I see great potential here.
Here lovers of hairy leaves and tendrils get their money's worth! N. veitchii as well as N. glandulifera both show extremely hairy, almost furry leaf undersides and tendrils, this characteristic is also present in the hybrid. The pitchers show a relatively broad, posteriorly folded peristome, which may be yellow, orange, or red, with dark stripes, depending on the individual and light intensity. The pitcher body is funnel-shaped and velvety-haired. Both species stamens from intermediate altitudes, but especially N. veitchii is often very tolerant of lowland temperatures.
Nepenthes izumiae x inermis represents a new hybrid where it is still very difficult to estimate how the flowering plant will look like. The younger plants show dark red pitchers with the fluted peristome of N. izumiae, the influence of N. inermis might show in the upper pitchers when the uppers become funnel shaped or the peristome is much reduced. In any case, an unusual hybrid.
