    Simon,

    I had a look at the pic in your link, and I'm trying to work out what your reference is to a macrophylla with a "spiked peristome" is in comparison to - is there a different type? I'm trying to put the words into pictures, and my visualisation skills are a bit iffy. Could you post pics of the different types of macrophylla you have? I've heard of one of the Wistuba clones being suspect, but I've never received enough details to work out what the growers are referring to.

    Cheers, Hamish

    Hamish, unless I'm wrong here, Simon is saying in reference that the N. macrophylla has "projections or small sharp wide points on the peristome giving it a "spiked" effect, nothing to do with the teeth, but the peristomes general shape. A regular, typical N. macrophylla has a fairly universal round peristome while this variety has a "spiked" or a protruded peristome in select spots.

    Dustin, I think I know what you're referring to now, the "ruffles" on the peristome in Jeremiah's picture. I agree it is atypical for macrophylla. It could be intraspecific variation, but it's a definitely possibility it could be a remnant of hybridisation with lowii as the peristome in Trusmadiensis flares out. Maybe genetic testing would tell you what it's background is. Interesting...

    But that gets us back to the debate so popular in Sarracenia circles of what a species is, and what a hybrid is...

    Hello

    Simon Lumb
    Yeah it is one of Wistubas clones.

    Thanks for your help
