Lol, woah! Dreaming big! I must give my applause, nonetheless. *snaps for you!* :lol:

Edit: no but really, that does sound like it would be an awesome plant. I am definitely pondering it—imagining if a Leucophylla and macdonaldae had a baby. :geek:

Your list is awesome! Nice collecting. We both have that ventricosa ‘Madja’ complex hybrid, and the spathulata x hamata hybrid. The first is a really awesome looking plant, matured. I look forward to when the one I’m growing fills out. It sounds like you’ve really built upon where you came from with carnivorous plants, so well done!

The thing I like about that Madja-as hybrid is that it grows pretty fast and it looks so cool for being so easy to grow. Mine is more on the reddish side.

Nice. Do you think that has anything to do with the Trus. genetics? Trusmandiensis has quickly become one of my top 5 favorite species to grow just for the beautiful color pattern it produces.

Well I think it may be a bit of the ventricosa and the lowii half of trusmadiensis.
