Nepenthes bicalcarata X campanulata is hybrid between two lowlanders. I grow this plant as a windowsill plant and it seems to be doing well. The whole plant resembles N. bicalcarata more than N. campanulata. But so far issues with low humidity and lower temperatures haven't been a problem. I grow N. campanulata on a windowsill and it does fine but the leaves of N. campanulata are considerable thicker and more waxier. This is the first pitcher this plant has produced. Right now I would consider this about a nice mix between the two parents. My hope is that the plant stays small and doesn't get large like N. bicalcarata can. I like hybrids with N. bicalcarata because the pitcher shape is tubbier compared with the more cylindrical pitchers of other species. And the fact that I can't grow a good N. bicalcarata as a houseplant makes the hybrids more desirable to me. Right now this plant has just been introduced by Exotica Plants. I think there would be some variation among the various seed grown plants available. As more photos surface, I'll update this profile.
