Here's what it looks like...pitcher is a bit dirty but oh well:
thats why i dont do that
All fear violence, all are afraid of death.
Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.
BTW that's a pretty interesting cross there Ron. I'm interested in seeing how it looks in a few months .
It looks pretty interesting hope you like it

You can grow pure N.pectinata as a lowlander, the trick is finding a clone from a lowland population. In clarke's nepenthes of sumatra, N. pectinata and N. xiphioides are lumped under N. gymnamphora, which has altitudinal range is 600m-2800m. Within the N. gymnamphora "complex", only N. xiphioides blatantly sticks out as different. It comes from the upper altitudinal ranges given for N. gymnamphora, and is a tiny, weak, plain-looking plant that needs constant cold nights and ridiculously high humidity. Growers often complain that their N.xiphioides plant hasn't pitchered in a year but usually quiet down becasue they realize its just a freaking N. xiphiodes and will never look impressive. For the reasons stated, I've never grown one. N. pectinata, on the other hand, is very hard to tell from N. gymnamphora. I know certain clones of N.gymnamphora can be grown as lowlanders (the one from black jungle is supposed to be particulary warmth-tolerant). I think N. pectinata is the same way.
I've never seen N. pectinata x truncata. It sounds like a cool hybrid.
So, PK, are you pleased or disappointed? Or too early to tell?

Pleased I suppose, we'll see....
Sounds like it should be a good one. Didn't know the BE gymnamphora is sort of heat tolerant...maybe I'll get one.
For me, telling gymnamphora and pectinata apart aren't entirely too hard. When I think of gynamphora, I think of the plants from Talakmau (the ones everyone's used to seeing). Pectinata seems more elongated, red, less toothy, etc. I guess its the "Gymnamphora of Sumatra".
