    I'm sorry, but I just don't see any difference. I've looked at several different pictures of specimens online, and to me, this looks like N. glabrata. At the very least, I see no reason to question its identity at this early stage in its development. It could be that it looks different to you, because the nursery I ordered from acclimates their plants to household-like conditions and provides mainly natural sunlight. Shorter days with less sun can cause the shortening of new leaves during the winter months.

    Honestly, I didn't post this so I could have a debate as to whether my plants are the species I know them to be. I mean, it's not like I picked this plant up from a disreputable seller or even a fellow amateur. I got it from a widely known online nursery, and I trust the site I bought it from, as do innumerable other growers.

    im not trying to fight with you so calm down, im just stating that it doesnt look like a glabrata in my eyes, if it is then it is. i was posting for comparisons sake, relax.

    notice that bottle neck like shape at the leaf attachment where the leaf has emerged from the previous one? thats not a trait of glabrata, atleast not in any of the ones ive seen, the blades always fold out competely and dont retain any sort of tubular shape at the attachment, so if it is a glabrata, its a bit roughed up but should recover in no time, enjoy your plants

    I wasn't saying that it's not glabrata, I just posted the best comparison pic I could find for you.
    Please keep us updated when it grows out some.

    Peace,

    I know you're all just trying to be helpful and I do appreciate that. I liked looking at all the glabratas from the wee seedlings to the larger ones.

    I see what you're saying about the leaf attachments SirKristoff. I took a close look them on my own plant and noticed that only the oldest leaf was not bottle necked. I guess I'll just have to do my best to nurture it back to normal health, and I thank you for your help.

    Sure thing, Zero. You're seedlings look wonderful, by the way!
