    would the real H. nutans please stand up

    In Stewart McPherson's book "Pitcher Plants of the Americas" he make the statement that the overwhelming majority of H. nutans in cultivation are not H. nutans.

    He says that in fact they are actually either hybrids with H. glabra or artificial crossbreeds produced by horticulturists.

    So, my question is... can someone post comparison pics of the imposter and the real thing for comparison?

    What are the key features to look for?

    While we are at it.... are the german clones (cough.. cough) the real McCoy? (I would think so, but the question still needs asked)

    TIA,
    Av

    I am pretty sure that the German's clones are the real thing

    Pyro,

    I would think the same thing... I mean my goodness talk about being close to the source

    Would the give away be as simple as the nectar spoon?.... surely it can't be that obvious

    edit: I have also heard that the majority of H. chimantensis in the states are of questionable pedigree, pretty much due to one certain source... but afaik that is still just speculation

    I am not sure what the defining characteristic is. I'll see what I can learn though.

    Had not heard that about chimantensis but I would assume that the German was the main source for those in the US as well...
