    Not the N. mac "Daddy"

    Hiya Fellow CP'ers

    Recently I purchased what I thought was a N. macrophylla, but looking at its newest pitcher, it is obviously not.

    I have contacted the person who sold me this plant, but he has not yet responded. I believe he had sold me this plant on good faith, but it unfortunately is one of those neps that needed some growing out to truly verify its species.

    Accoriding to this person, he got it from Andreas Wistuba about 3-4 years ago as a N. macrophylla, but it had no clone ID, the diameter of the plant is about the plant is about 5-6" and the pitcher in the pic is 2" tall including lid.

    I've already contacted a couple of other members here for their opinions, but just wanted to know what the rest of you folks thought.

    Here are some pics:










    Any guesses, info, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks to all those who respond

    Good Growing,
    E

    ps. I've already posted this topic on the "Help ID" section here, but I thought I'd get more responses here.

    Mods, if you feel this topic is inapproriate here, then please delete and my apologies

    Looks like it could possibly be a N. x trusmadiensis.

    like i said on the other forum. its most likely the clone from wistuba that ended up being trusmadienses.

    PS being that seeds probably originated from wild sources. it would be mac mama

    Nice plant! I agree with glider, I think trusmadienses is the most likely. Its still small but when compared to this picture, I think its a good match.

    Hiya Ant-

    Here is a pic of JensB old TM: http://pics.nepenthes.se/forumpics/07.08/img_8826.jpg

    Which kinda sold me on what my mystery plant was.

    But still I would like to gather a consensus.

    Thanks for the pic.

    Good Growing To Ya

    I agree that it most likely a hybrid; though considering where it came from, it was most probably an honest mistake. The pitcher is a bit off for N. macrophylla but it is still quite young; and there have been more than a few seed-grown plants "macros" that I have grown which exhibited a fair range of variability in early leaf shape and in juvenile pitchers.

    Since I am currently awaiting a N. x trusmadiensis, I can only hope that it is as attractive as that plant . . .

    Hehe - your plant might not be the "Mac Daddy," but N. macrophylla might be its daddy.
