    Macrophylla?

    Hi folks,

    I've been raising this nep since it was a rootless bud from Wistuba. It was sold to me as a N. macrophylla but recent reports state that a lot of the so called macros from Wistuba turned out to be N x Trusmadiensis. I think it's reached a point where it maybe possible to make a positive ID. Here are photos of the plant:





    I would welcome any thoughts on what you think the plant is and why you think it is either a macrophylla or xTrusmadiensis.

    Looks legitimate to me, people like to spread negative rumours, but they never spread the positive ones or corrections.

    Andreas has stated to me, and other people that this issue has be resolved for a long time, and that he has culled out the usurpers. Currently he sales two clones, 'T' and another one. I've seen these a bit larger and they fit with the BE ones.

    He's been selling those two clones for a while I believe. So I think you're safe

    The fetching, though mischievous young woman in the elf outfit is right; that's a mac. I've grown dozens of them from seed and the Wistuba story is an old one and long-ago corrected. Here is an example of a young, "typical" N. x trusmadiensis from seed . . .
