    Great photos, Machete!
    Especially like the shot looking down into the glandular area. Nice work!

    N. lowii x truncata is a great hybrid. Here is a so-so shot of the peristome of another one. Look carefully and you can see a couple of bristles inherited from N. lowii hanging from the lid:

    I like your Machette. Does yours stay on the green side throughout the picher's life? N. lowii x truncata will prove to be one of the best hybrids of the decade. I can't wait until this Exotica order is done with. I'll be getting a really big lowii x truncata, hopefuly with some good intermediate pichers to take photos of [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]. I tried to take some more pics of the latest pichers on mine. I haven't seen a clone that gets quite this dark, maybe too dark [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] .





    My phone still can't get good pics of the glands, or the two hairs under the lid [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] .

    I posted a pic of mine taken about 6 months ago. The colour is a bit off, in real life it is a deep, deep purple, the same as lowii - .

    I've got a nice big pitcher developing at the moment which should be ready in about 3 weeks, so I'll post a new pic then.

    A pic of that plant, six months later, should have pichers about 11" or more. At least, that would be my guess [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] .

    Hey guys, great plants!

    How do you grow yours? Highland, lowland, or somewhere in between? I've been debating on whether or not to get one....

    Do they tend to display "hybrid resilliance" (less effected by humidity/temperature fluxuations), or do they favor the lowii pickiness?

    Lowii hybrids tend to ber very vigorous for some reason, and lowii x truncata is no exeption. It has the appearance of a fast grower (even though it only produced a full new leaf every 1.5 months for me) because it increases in size so quickly. It's easy in intermediate conditions, and tolerates low humidity well. It is rather unique in its growth and preferences, unique from either parent if you ask me. You should deffinately get one, before it becomes scarce. It's a very rewarding hybrid to grow.
