im PRAYING that this plant is the real deal. not very often you see the true thing anymore....ive only seen one in person, and only a couple of photos online...Bellas are the real deal, for sure. saw the parents and everything...must be a real honor im hoping to get my hands on a couple more in the future, of course i only want the real thing when it comes to macro, but i would love the hybrids too...just true is always better
I have a seed-grown N. macrophylla from BE that didn't exhibit the dreaded peristome irregularities until the pitchers were about 8 cm. tall.
(Big Bella, since you were an eyewitness to the parents of your seed, sounds like you have the best shot a raising the "Pure" species -- whatever the heck that means!!)
Hope to be growing one like this: http://www.hbs.ne.jp/home/s-yamada/P1090633.jpg

OMG SK beautiful pitcher!
id bet the "Real" species isnt even in cultivation. I think macrophylla itself is probably a hybrid, maybe part of an ancient swarm with villosa and something? ? ?
Anyways, nice looking mac SK. Ill hope for you at least!
