    N. truncata 'Pasian'

    This is a highland form.

    Top view. The leaves got smaller and smaller during the previous months with hot weather.


    Then it suddenly put out a large pitcher with a slightly deformed peristome. This photo was taken on 15th this month.


    The pitcher is colouring up nicely even in bright shade. Photos taken today.

    What are the characteristics of the "Pasian" variety of N. truncata? I've seen them everywhere, but none have been full grown. I'm just curious because this seems to be a "best seller" right now.

    What a relief. My truncata was shrinking and I thought something worse was happening. Yours is very colorful. Mine stays pure green in full sun.

    "We don't have highland N. truncata from anywhere other than Mt. Pasian. If others are selling highland N. truncata, it most likely comes from Mt. Apo I would think. Mt. Pasian is a very difficult plance to get to. Lots of drunken guards with AK47s last time I went." - Rob Cantley

    The range is very wide (total of 43 clones). From red peristome with a green body, to fire engine red for the entire pitcher. It seems that some clones are even dark red.

    This is a red clone grown by a local guy, Firefly.

    I have had a variety of them -- red, green, mottled, dark, light -- over the years -- mostly eventually sold or given away when they became too large to manage. I currently have a good-sized N. truncata (Pasian) on my windowsill in Northern California and will keep it until it becomes obscenely large . . .

    Wow. Can't wait for mine to grow in like that! Right now, it's just a twerp at a meager 12" diameter with the last pitcher at 7 or 8 inches.

    Mr. Truncata, you should go to the NECPS show this weekend. You will no doubt see some really large truncatas there. There were at least two every year so far.
