    Steve,
    You are probably right. The "Robusta" went with it when a certain form called was N. carunculata var Robusta. Then they changed carunculata to a form of N. bongso. I like the Robusta tag, as you get an idea of which plant you are getting.
    As you said, I don't know if you can say bongso var Robusta

    Cheers,

    Joe

    the peristome is widening and gonna curl back. there is some stripping at the moment, which is cool for now!
    the body color seems weird but i have moved it in higher light to see if it gets more color...

    Nice sunny place there. Do you get full light the whole day, or only direct light for a few hours?
