    Extremely difficult to tell a 'Tarnok' from pitcher traits alone (I would recommend not even bothering). Especially since 'Tarnok' was a wild leucophylla to begin with--it will look just like any other leuco. Then factor in differences in lighting/nutrition and other growing conditions and it becomes basically impossible.

    Cultivar description does not mention pitcher traits: http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn...4p107_108.html

    Here's my giant clonal colony:


    You can see all different manner of redness, white lips, red lips, some have more green, etc.

    If nothing else, from the neck up, it looks right. I did have a Tarnok in my collection, as well as other pitcher plants. Tag have faded or been lost.

    'Tarnok' pitchers are pretty much indistinguishable from your run-of-the-mill S. leucophylla. You'll just have to wait for flowers to be sure.

    This is one of my no-location S. leucphylla spring pitchers and the flower from about a month and a half earlier



    I had the same problem, the labels fell off of divisions of 'Tarnok' and regular S. leucphylla. I gave them away telling the recipient that it might be 'Tarnok' and they would know when it flowered.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I'm finding that writing the names in pencil, albeit light compared with Sharpie, stays on the tags.
