Ok found it:

These are 2 new cultivars from the grower Toon Kuipers. He made the 'Linda' and 'Louisa'. And he also developed the stand so the pitchers can hang nicely.

That is correct. Toon Kuiper doesn't make much crosses himself. Toon has a Bromelia nursery 15 minutes driving from Aalsmeer and produces for the wholesale market.

He also mass produceses some (like 10 or so) Nepenthes species for the garden centre market and those originate often from Matthew Soper.

If you have been to the latest ICPS in Leiden you have seen his plants hanging from the stairs to the canopywalk (he was very kind to Carnivora :thumbsup: )

Good quality, very reasonably prices in most case (of course Toon has no controle over the care and pricing the garden centre subjects plant and consumer too). Only minus: he is one of those people responsible for the large number of ventrata plants sold in gardencentres with a label alata. (and of course that he only sells wholesale).

I'm all for a greater variety of Neps to be found in garden centres but I find these two hybrids really uninspiring. Sorry to be so negative but if you are going to go to the time and effort of mass producing a plant at least make it something with a bit of wow! Anyway I hope they are really easy growers and give their owners hours of enjoyment.

Regards Neil
