    I would agree there is the possibility. The leaf shape to me doesn't indicate N. trusmadiensis however. Perhaps it is just the angle of the photo. But the leaves look considerably wider at the tips and the petiole is quite long. To me that is very N. lowii looking.

    I also think that this pitcher is not a good example of what we should be looking at. I think it has not developed 100% having just been shipped and relocated. The plant is a good size though so I think in the next pitcher or two once it has settled in, we should see some nicely developed pitchers which will give a much better picture as to whether it is N. lowii or some sort of N. trusmadiensis.

    Yes indeed he does now, but for many years they were shipped as N. macrophylla.

    Does anyone have a photo of the plant he now ships labelled as N. trusmadiensis? Is it the same plant that for years was thought to be a N. macrophylla as in Osmosis's thread on Sams forum?

    In either event this plant in question is too old to be from the stock he now ships as N. trusmadiensis.

    hmm guess my link doesn't work ;/
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Well I can say for the last 4 years he has had them labeled separately. So... 3-4 years ago what was shipped to the originator ought to have been properly labeled.

    Does anyone have a photo of the plant he now ships labelled as N. trusmadiensis?
    I am not 100% but I think Rattler may have one... I know he has the one that ships as macro now...

    It would deffinately be interesting to see photos of his plant he ships as N. trusmadiensis. I am not certain if it is the ?N. macrophylla or not. It could be an entirely different plant and perhaps is the plant we have in question here that was accidently mislabelled.

    All I am saying is don't rule out N. lowii yet.

    To those who had questions regarding the shape of this plants leaf, here is a pic of its newest leaf:



    I agree what Tony had said, that this plant is a recent aquirement and it needs time to adjust to my conditions before it truly reveals itself. I will update you folks when it has gone through another pitcher or two, but in the mean time, hypothetical guesses are welcome.

    By the way Tony, the link you gave on reply #16 doesn't seem to work (for me at least).

    Also, any chance you have an N. mac available?

    Good Growing,
    E

    ps. I really appreciate you all for responding to my post

    pss. That leaf came in with that slice.

    he said the plant was bought from wistuba several years ago. how long ago was it that the plants true identity came out?

    Looks pretty hybridish to me, I could definitely believe that there would be some macro in it's lineage. A very pretty plant, though, nonetheless, I just hope for your sake it didn't come with a macro price tag.

    I'm leaning to the TM side also. Perhaps TM x lowii?

    I have a wistuba Mac, and was a bit wary of ordering out of fear it would be the dubious mac x tm possibility. Good to hear he sorted them out, I didn't realize he had. Mine is so small it will be a while till I'll see any mac characteristics.
