    They slow down from the speed they grow at when regularly fed.

I have the exotica one with the striped peristome, it's quite nice, especially once mature it has greeny-yellow pitchers with a striped peristome, but some clones are nicer than others in that cross. There's another cross one with a browny-red peristome, and one with a gold peristome. They all get very large in good conditions. I've seen some different crosses of these two species on Trent Meek's site as well that seem to be different from those that I have seen.
    so what do you think i have? do you have anymore pics of the ones that you have? and what about KPG's cross?
    hey lol,
    did you receive yours yet?

    You should have the exotica form. Exotica is the only nursery with a flowering reddish pitcher veitchii (veitchii H/L), and they were the ones to cross it with truncata. Most of the progeny have reddish pitchers as well, much like what you have.

    I don't have any recent pics of my truncata x veitchii. It grew outdoors for a long time and didn't pitcher once. So I have it into several pieces and put them into the greenhouse as cuttings. They've struck and are producing little pitchers, but nothing that's worth photographing. Maybe in 6 months time when they've gone through summer.

    My reference to "H/L" and an abbreviation of "highland". Many growers abbreviate highland and lowland to H/L and L/L, or HL and LL.

    Exotica aren't the only nursery with a flowering-sized lowland red/pink veitchii, I have one and so do two friends, one of whom owns a nursery. There have been quite a few crosses between truncata and veitchii, dating back long before Exotica existed, especially in the US and Japan. Remember, growers such as Cliff Dodd were hybridising before many here were born. They tended to swap or give away the progeny of these crosses rather than sell them. Remember, just because Exotica is selling a hybrid doesn't mean they got there first, it just means they sell it first. There are people who produce hybrids and trade them amongst other growers, who object to the commercialisation of the species. You'd be amazed at what things are growing in some people's collections, that you'd never hear about unless you are well connected. But that is in the nature of any collectable.

    please SydneyNeps, try to remember to post a pic [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
    i wanna see urs!

    BTW, this cross has alot of "hair" on the stem and on the underside of each leaf. and it seems to emerge just like a veitchii. but truncata , the shape of the leaf, is still there very much on the stem and leaf.
