    For those of you who are too lazy to look, here are links to the pictures
    vent x (trunc x mind)

    trunc x (vent x mind)

    So I think either the tag is wrong or the pictures are labelled wrong. Interesting to note the differences between very similar hybrids. I guess the question could be answered by noting which one looks more ventricosa and which one looks more truncata. Of course the actual variation in the seedlings may be more diverse than these two pictures anyway, so unless you get that clone, who knows what you'll end up with.

    According to the website where I found the pic., the plant is N. truncata x (ventricosa x trusmadiensis). It was awarded "Best Hybrid Nepenthes" in the VCPS 2004 Show.

    Like Steve said, it can be hard to pin this down. Especially since this is a complex hybrid, with 4 species involved.

    "I'm confused...wait, maybe I'm not."

    I apologize for the error above...must have "trusmadiensis on the brain".
    The parentage according to the VCPS page is N. truncata x (ventricosa x minandaoensis).

    Sorry guys,

    Knew I was right. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] It must be a darker clone of the cross.
