Nepenthes diabolica x hamata (xSmilodon) AW-01
I've found this cross to be a much faster grower than pure N. hamata (and definitely faster than N. diabolica) and also tolerant of much higher light as well. Probably Wistuba's best cross, maybe only behind hamata x edwardsiana.
This plant is actually the one I have for sale, if anyone's interested :p
