    Kinda did.

    If turns out to be lowii

    If it turns out to be trusmadiensis

    All I wanted was a nice N. mac

    I am not 100% but I think Rattler may have one... I know he has the one that ships as macro now...
    had it, no longer have it....please keep in mind anything after this in no way is critical of Wistubas plants, i have no issues ordering him....i am EXTREAMLY rough on plants and the TM in question was not ordered directly from Andreas, but originated from his stock...the TM was a lil on the small side and after a couple months crapped out on me, the macro however never skipped a beat and is doing great....here are some pics:

    Hiya Rattler-

    Thanks for taking the time in chiming in.

    That N. mac is a beaut and sorry to hear about your TM.

    Now that N. mac was what I was hoping for, not this possibly N. lowii or trus or some crazy unknown hybrid plant (alright, trus ummm ok, lowii bad).

    Hey All-

    With the permission of another CP'er from another board, here is a pic of his newly acquired N. TM:


    The owner says its a BE TM clone 2
    "My Greatest Fear Is, When I Die, The Missus Will Sell All My Stuff For What I Told Her I Got It For"

    I bought a cactus. A week later it died. And I got depressed, because I thought, Damn. I am less nurturing than a desert.

    Well, in my opinion, the leaf shape and pitchers resemble N. ephippiata more to me than N. lowii...

    You may have something there, Capensis.

    But like the lowii, gots to wait to see if there any hair under that chiny-chin-chin (yeah I know, the lid)

    I thought I had lost these but here are two pics of plant in question prior to purchasing:





    Hopefully these two pics will give more aid to the IDing of this plant.

    A grower from another board found this little tid-bit of information from Mr. Catalani's Nep U website:

    "It is reported that some of the plants in cultivation may be a hybrid (N. x Tusmadiensis (N. macrophylla x N. lowii)) since there have been reports of hairs on the underside of the lids. This is possible if seed was collected, since N. x trusmadiensis is a naturally occurring hybrid. It was once reported that N. x trusmadiensis was somewhat abundant on Mt. Trusmadi, but later reports stated that it is very rare, and that all plants may be connected to the main mother plant. It could be that seed was collected from a macrophylla plant, in which some of the flowers of the racemae was fertilized with pollen from N. lowii. Whereas my plant was fairly fast growing, plants which are in question of being a hybrid are reported to grow rather slowly (a trait of lowii.) I have noticed that the pitchers of one of the plants in question matches closely that of N. trusmadiensis, and is much more red in coloration than my macrophylla plant, which had yellow orange pitchers and no hairs under the lid. (It has now been confirmed that some plants which were bought as macrophylla were in fact xTrusmadiensis. They are both in cultivation now in decent numbers.)"

    A little update from Mr. Catalani.

    I sent him those last two pics and this is his reply:

    "That looks like a xTrusmadiensis. Besides the pitcher, the leaves have a "V" shape to them that it gets from lowii. "
