Lovely nepenthes, good to see what my densiflora x robcantleyi might look like in the future, Densiflora x robcantleyi is a Borneo Excotics hybrid. Just planted some nepenthes bongso seeds from uk cps, hope mine look as good as yours.

Some nice plants.

Yeh, to confirm any Robcantleyi hybrids originate from BE and will do for several years to come.

Also - I could be wrong, but I think your khasiana x viking, should actually be Viking x khasiana. This cross was produced in Thailand and seeds sold in early 2008. I had a load and Shawn in Thailand grew a load of plants - so it's interesting to hear some have made their way into the US, unless someone else had seed and has quietly been growing them (which is possible). I've not seen anything to suggest that the cross has also been done the otherway around (as you've written here).

Given the right light, these pitchers can go deep red. For these it seems that good direct light causes the plants to be more green - a trait which it seems to inherit from 'Viking'.

Thanks, and excellent thx :) yes that does make sense considering they've been cornering the 'queen x king' and all market..

I'll go re-check the label. Edit: yep it says khasiana x viking. I have noticed that whatever portion of the pitcher is receiving direct light will turn cherry red, otherwise anything on the backside of the pitcher will remain green. I almost exclusively window/balcony-grow, so it gets whatever the sun is giving haha!
