Nepenthes Esther, from Leilani

Nepenthes Esther is a complex hybrid from Leilani Nepenthes. Its breeding is: N. (spectabilis X tobaica) X x Dyeriana. N. Dyeriana is an old hybrid, possibly one of the Victorians, bred from [(northiana x maxima) x (rafflesiana x veitchii)], so N. Esther is quite a complex hybrid. This is just a small seedling still, but the coloring and pitcher shape gives clues to its potential adult beauty!
