Our selected clone of Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionasi is characterized by its extraordinary vigor and robustness. I know plants that spend the summer in bog beds or simply without protection on the balcony or terrace. Even under such sub-optimal conditions the plants reach a n impressive size.This robustness is, in my experience, well inherited and I expect that Heliamphora (heterodoxa x ionasi) x exappendiculata Araopan is also an exceptionally easy cross suitable for beginners.
One of my best crosses!This cross combines almost ideally the best features of both species. The interesting lid shape comes from Heliamphora minor. However, the lid is clearly enlarged compared to H. minor. All offered and pre-selected clones show a nice veining - a characteristic of Heliamphora macdonaldae.I am still looking for my 2-3 favorites at the moment. Since I cannot propagate all pre-selected clones, this is the last chance to acquire some of them. In the future I will only propagate and offer the final selection of my 2-3 favorite clones.
Nothing can go wrong with these parents!The young plants show heavily hairy leaves and a waxy layer between the hairs. The leaf colour is mostly dark.The peristomes of semi-adult plants are usually nicely striped and raised.
Nepenthes chaniana x mollis shows very pretty lower pitchers. The pitchers have a yellow-green ground colour with many dark red spots. A poison green peristome with red stripes and a green lid speckled with red. The pitcher shape can be described as slender and funnel-shaped and largely corresponds to that of N. chaniana. The leaves are extremely hairy on the underside, and so is the petiolus. This hybrid can also be described as trouble-free and continues to grow even under suboptimal conditions.
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!
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.
The first seedlings are already very colorful, showing red-green leaves red or orange pitchers with red dots and a striped peristome ! I am very excited about this hybrid.The fact that the colour is already showing so strongly should mean that N. mollis has become strongly established with N. kongkandana x mollis. The combination of the fast-growing, robust N. kongkandana from the lowlands with the colourful, showy N. mollis from the highlands promises an interesting hybrid.
This is a hybrid of two parent species with character. Both species show intensely striped peristomes in the base pitchersand a pronounced funnel shape in the uppers. The lower pitchers demonstrate that the math works out. I am looking forward to the first high upper pitchers...
New hybrid with the Nepenthes undulatifolia described in 2011. This hybrid easily shows the undulating (wavy), namesake leaves of N. undulatifolia. The pitchers are ovate, bulbous, and spotted with a red ground color. The robustness of N. ventricosa makes the hybrid faster and more robust than the already fast-growing pure N. undulatifolia. The hybrid forms many pitchers that are quite large compared to the plant.An extremely rewarding plant for beginners and advanced growers.
Nepenthes chaniana with the hairy, funnel-shaped pitchers as a cross with the Giant form of N. spectabilis. Nepenthes spectabilis does not bear its name for nothing, the colouration and patterning of the pitchers and peristome is absolutely spectacular and often dominant in hybrids, so these hybrids do not disappoint.
A recent hybrid where larger pitchers are not yet known. The first pitchers with characteristics show an elongated pitcher body with the coloration of Nepenthes glandulifera. The peristome is red with dark stripes. The hairs and nectaries have become established and will become established on larger pitchers.However, as with all N. lowii hybrids, one does not know what lies dormant in the combination until one has the first upper pitchers. The funnel shape of N. glandulifera could complement that of N. lowii well .
Nepenthes glandulifera x Predator (= Nepenthes glandulifera x (truncata x hamata))I am curious about the influence of Nepenthes truncata (=> size) and Nepenthes hamata (=> dentition of the peristome) on this cross.
A very variable hybrid, very dependent on the genes used in the parent plants. Some specimens look like a robcantleyi, some even with an even wider peristome! Others have a more elongated pitcher body or a lighter peristome, sometimes even with intense stripes.
A spectacular hybrid from promising parents. The hybrid forms elongated orange-yellow pitchers, which are spotted red throughout the body. The wing bars are fully formed and toothed. The peristome can vary from unicoloured to slightly striped. But there are also various specimens with a color gradient from red to yellow towards the inside of the peristome.
