    As far as I know, Nepenthes x trusmadiensis is still not that widely available, is distinctly different in appearance (even while young), and may be even harder to come by than N. macrophylla . . .

    Entwadumela,

    I asked Andreas if he had an actual N. macrophylla, because there was some question as to whether his clones were mixed with lowii. He told me that he was almost certain that his clone'T' was true, as it had been verified as true by another German taxonomist. He didn't concede that his clone 'S' wasn't true, but he also didn't confirm this one as being true either. I have both of those clones, as well as a BE macrophylla. His clone 'T' looks identical to my BE macrophylla. The AW clone 'S' macrophylla has pointed, narrower leaves with a different colored and shaped pitcher. It also grows much faster than his clone'T'. That's about all I know on the subject.

    dvg, it would be great if you had the chance to post photos of your various clones, comparing leaf shape, etc. Among seed-grown plants, there is a good amount of variability, even while young . . .

    if the S clone isnt pure macro it isnt TM either but likely something like mac x (mac x lowii) or possibly even less lowii than that.....if it isnt pure than it has far more mac in its genes than the 50% of TM

    DVG-

    Thank you for elaborating more on your conversation with Mr. Wistuba.

    To all who are interested, there is a very good discussion, as well as incredble pics of the N. mac "daddy" here:

    I personally like the more uniform peristome look rather than the spikey cog wheel version.

    Good Growing Everyone

    My S clone has just gone through a growth spurt and is inflating some newer and hopefully larger pitchers. I'll try and post some pics once these open up. The nice thing about macrophylla pitchers is that they last a long time.

    I haven't specifically asked Rob but..as far as I know that is incorrect. BE had their own stock of seed grown N. macrophylla which they would have used some seed to start in the lab.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hi Tony,

    That's the first I've heard of Borneo Exotics' N. macrophylla origins, aside from German sources; and hasn't Wistuba supplied some of the BE plants in the first place?
