    The dew appears to be a burmannii or one of the closely related species
    the first nep looks like a fusca of some kind, possibly the flared peristome variety, can i get a look at the leaf tips? possibly fusca x veitchii
    noID1 is a sang
    noID2 is a ventricosa, let it get some size, but i am pretty positive it is a ventricosa
    noID3&4 also look like sanguinea judging by leaf shape and attachment, the lids look similar to my sang when it was that size, all nice plants

    The dew looks like a burmanni and nep2 looks like a ventricosa.

    Thanks...thought so on that dew, but I don't know that much about dews. I really hope what I paid for on that "platychila" isn't actually a platychilaXfusca...

    There is a pic, the second one down for it, that has the leaf tip. It's dark already today so maybe tomorrow I can grab another pic if I get home before sun down if you'd need more.

    i would really lean to plat x fusca, im not a platy expert at all, but the plant has something that just yells that it has fusca parentage....it could just be a young platty, i completely missed acouple of the photos, must not had loaded completely, the lid of the current pitcher definitely indicates that its not a fusca, but still very well may be a hybrid with platy.

    hey zuz. im sorry but i think you might have a platy x fusca as well. i wouldnt blame tony but rather his suppliers for their laxness when it comes to species purity. (you can roast me alive now because i made a strong statement without support)

    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.

    hey amph, also take in account that there is a size difference between your plants....its hard to compare plants when they are different sizes since they can be totally different in appearance...
