    pectinata x truncata, as i guess again haha, a squater, toothy truncata with spots. thats just what i see it as. and truncated leaves

    Thanks again to the person who gave them too me, I am planning on giving some to a nursery here so they can sell them and maybe in a couple years it will be more common in cultivation.

    I think lowwi is dominant in lowii x truncata but it still gets huge just resembles lowii more.

    What did I say about double posts?

    I never said truncata is dominant in every single cross. To make a blanket statement in Nepenthes culture is to look an eventual fool. Regarding the pitchers, the size and to a lesser degree shape comes from truncata. Since pitchers don't mean much for taxonomy's sake, please review the leaves of this hybrid, as compared with parent species. Then look at their attachment to the stem, overall growth habit, etc. You'll find it takes more after truncata than you think by looking at the pitchers.

    Thanks in advance if anyone can find me a pic.
    Whoa! I've done a lot of things and girls while drunk but never done that before.

    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.

    Lol... yeah I have done a couple drunk orders too. It's safer than drunk girls lol, though I think we have all learned that lesson. I think getting drunk somehow convinces you that you can spend more money on plants than you actually have money or room for lol.

    BTW that's a pretty interesting cross there Ron. I'm interested in seeing how it looks in a few months .

    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.
