I would think that a Darlingtonia x Heliamphora sp. might be a more viable possibility, but hey, lessee what happens. - Rich

Why's that? Is Darlingtonia more closely related to Heliamphora?

Although no formal study has been done, it seems to be, judging from the similar flowers and seedlings. - Rich

This actually may be better done in a lab, where certain problems involving pollen receptors and fertilization on the physical levels can be overcome! The genetics are secondary problems. :happy: - Rich
