    but that being said, i got a platy from Tony as well, and im inclined to think that it's the real thing. you've seen the pitchers and they are much less tubular than your "platy". i've also noticed a difference at the base of the leaves. mine are very close together almost like burbidgeae, but yours is more open.
    i guess it's really the luck of the draw.
    Mine's not from Tony...it's from that place that is horrible and shall not be named.

    I guess I'll grow it out and hope for the best. I've got some other junk = hybrids (oh, I'm feeling like stoking the flames tonight) growing in with the species anyway. It's about 15" from leaf tip to leaf tip, excluding tendrils. Fuzzy as heck though.

    here's a leaf tip - sorry it's got brown spots, but it's still the right shape...
