    N. 'Gentle' has a wavy edged leaf and more of a bronze brownish peristome.
    Considering Lowe's and Home Despot order plants from the wholesalers by the thousands, I'm gonna say N. 'Miranda'. Also, the pitcher coloration and leaf-growth habit are pure N. 'Miranda'.

    Looks like a young N. miranda to me, probably an established basal shoot, Mine has just made a basal shoot and the second basal pitcher is over 8" tall! The pitchers are somewhat long and thin in it's younger stages Also the Gentle has more of a N. fusca (sabah form) look with as someone said, wavy leaves and a furry coating on the plant. Miranda is not furry at all.
    Of the two, Miranda's my favorite, fast growing and ENORMOUS![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    definitely not a 'gentle', but the small upper pitchers are terribly similar but hmm, i really don't think there is any way it could be a 'gentle'.

    miranda sounds like a good bet.

    i am a live nursery specialist at lowe's, we do not order by the thousands even though, i know, you were exaggerating on purpose. we get maybe twenty in. also, the vendor's at gubler's don't know poop. met them. they're pests.

    But I was only slightly exaggerating [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Imagine 20 N. 'Miranda' plants being shipped to fifty different Lowe's locations. (how many Lowe's are there? We must have 20 of them in the southeast Florida tri-county area alone). Do the math....

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.
