Nepenthes Robcantleyi "Queen of Hearts" or "King of Spades"

Does anyone know if BE ever released direct clones of QoH or KoS? None of the QoH x KoS seem to look as "regal" as the parents, color and peristome wise.

I don't believe they have. They do have N. robcantleyi in tissue culture, but those are the 550 original clones from the first seed batch of QoH x KoS. BE has released both seed grown plants and TC plants, but none are clones of the original 9.

I've wondered what the story was behind the "550 clones" on the tag. Thanks!

Lol
Probably should've explained that more on the tag.
