Not a geneticist here but I believe the vast majority of the offspring
should look pretty much like the hybrid parents. If you were to plot the
appearance of the offspring with the x axis ranging from N. northiana to
N. maxima and the y axis being the number of seedlings with that
appearance it would be approximately a normal distribution centered on an
intermediate appearance and the very tips of the tails at the original
