    It has to do with the variety of truncata used in the cross.

    So I assume the truncta is wide and the other truncata is shorter(squat).

    The so-called "wide" selection of N. truncata is a male used by Exotica Plants in their breeding and specifically refers to this individual's especially wide, flaring peristome. You can view a photo of the N. truncata "wide peristome" on EP's web site, where they list that specific cross. This is the image EP uses to depict that cross:

    The other cross, although very similar, uses a male that is apparently of a much more "squat" character.

    The squat and wide variations of lowii x truncata started off at the same price. Apparently the supplier offers discounts on groups of plants after they've been around for "too long".. which in turn causes cheaper prices with retailers here in the states. Hence the lower cost of the lowii x truncata 'Wide'.
    I've grown both variations. So far I've only noticed a different coloration in the two. The squat seems to be much more colorful, but only time will tell how the adult peristomes will differ.
    Then again, (IMO) plants will vary in appearance from grower to grower.
