    Very nice plants Jeremiah.. especially the Jaq.
    I have been wondering the same thing about that particular clone of macrophylla. i have a couple seed grown plants that look correct to compare with Wistubas clone. I agree with you, I think it may have lowii in its past somewhere. The color, peristome shape (spikes), and pitcher shape all look slightly off.

    heres a pic of the wistuba clone, and a seed grown mac to compare.



    Thanks for sharing your wonderfull plants, and greenhouse pics. I just can't get enough!

    If there is some lowii in there, which looks likely, it will certainly be noticeable in the upper pitchers. Phill Mann noted that his Trusmadiensis looked much like a macrophylla (I assume it was from a macrophylla mother) until it matured, when the lowii influence came out. Given that these populations grow together and Trusmadiensis was not a rare hybrid (until people started ripping it from the ground), it would not be surprising to see genetic remnants in both populations of the other species.

    BTW, has anyone counted the ribs on the peristome? Trusmadiensis has more ribs than macrophylla, so it might be an indicator of hybrid parentage.

    Hi Robin
    That is lovely,i to have a clone from Wistuba but its still small so it will be interesting to see as to how it develops in the future.
    Bye for now julian

    Oh yeah he got some really nice shots of N. rajah. No photos of N. truncata I think it is from the Philippines right? I will try to get those posted ASAP.

    Thanks
