There might be a spect x veitchii F2 cross in the makes. Someone who purchased a spect x veitchii from me has one in spike and he describes the buds as being oval-long. If his comes into spike, there will be an F2 done (as I have nearly ten in spike now).
But I'd like to really cross it with something like N. lowii x veitchii or eymae or truncata!
I'd really like to see pics of your (nothiana x veitchii) x tiveyi's when they pitcher.
Sweet spectabilis x veitchiis. Mine is forming a pitcher now (its first for me), and I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Well this clone pictured is done flowering (unless a secondary spike is in the works). I just plucked the last few open flowers from the tips and sent them away.
but do not worry, more male N. spectabilis x veitchii are on the way. I must have about ten clones coming into spike, will need to devise a method to number them so that future crosses can be redone using the exact same clone/parents.
Did I get pollen from that plant? What # is it? Is it your "Dragon" of this cross?
I have trouble calling a plant a clone when there is only one seed-grown plant in existence. Clone always implies tissue-culture to me. I realize if this plant were propagated, that it would be through vegetative cloning, so clone is probably the correct term. Can someone straighten me out or come up with a better term to distinguish mass-market plants from seed-grown, one-of-a-kind gems?

Unless a hybrid is named (properly), a cross like N. spectabilis x veitchii will be known as such, but a varietal name of N. (spectabilis x veitchii) v. King Tut can be used to designate this one clone of my twenty or so other clones.
All rooted cuttings of King Tut will be called King Tut.
The name King Tut is only for example, do not use this name.
>so clone is probably the correct term< Yes, it is. Clone and cultivar are different in that a cultivar is named because it is exceptional and worthy of distinction. A cultivar is a clone, but not all clones are cultivars...or worthy of cultivar status. Also, when naming cultivars, it is suggested by the IRA(maybe required, I don't have the regs in front of me.) that other growers have propagations of your cultivar. The idea being that it is pointless to give a plant a cultivar name and be the only person growing it. Mass market plants are from tc. M gave a good example of how it works. Before naming it King Tut he would want to distribute a small number of cuttings to other growers, and hopefully get feedback on how it performs in their growing conditions. (not that he wants to name it King Tut.) Steve, you came up with some pretty nice cultivar names! Only, I would leave the 'Dragon' names for Geoff; I'm sure he has more in the works.
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
