Here is a pic of N. rafflesiana gigantea x bical collector's red #28, made by Steve Stewart, but raised from seed by us. We have about seven or eight seedlings from the grex. This is the most colorful seedling, we have given it the nickname/future cultivar name of 'Bloodtooth'.
Here is a pic of the natural hybrid N. cantleyi (bical x gracilis).
The bical fangs in hybrids that have been crossed back on to bical seem to have more fangs. We would like to see a pic of your (rokko x bical) x bical.
Michael, Only natural hyrbids can have latin names. I don't know of any N. bical x trichocarpa natural hybrids. N. cantleyi was named in honor of Rob Cantley, who brought the hybrid into cultivation. Sorry Jorge, we don't have any cuttings of the cantleyi at this time... truthfully, Rob Cantley wants a cutting of our purple form. Usually that hybrid is not as colorful.
About colorful bical hybrids... We have a bunch of very striking and exciting bical hyrbids.
N. bical red x northiana
Here are some different seedlings of the cross N. bical red x (spectabilis x northiana).
We think they're pretty colorful. No two are the same. We'll have some of those bical x (spec x north) for sale soon.
Hope that bright red bical cutting starts to pitcher for you soon. This is a pic of one of our pure N. bical (red x orange) seedlings. It's the offspring of your red bical.
Michael, what does the bical x (north x veitch) look like?
I was going to order one, but I decided against it.

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.
