    cyclopse Red Leopard vs Fly







    Guess Who Won

    Also have a question

    It's not a big deal, both plants are healthy & doing good
    But does anyone have any idea why the two plants look so different???

    Plant #1 has Long Thin Tendrils & flat leaves {for lack of a better term}
    &
    Plant #2 is a lot more compact with Short Thick Tendrils & the leaves are folded kind of like a taco shell

    You can see side by side pics at~

    Both are Red Leps {Vent X Max}
    Got them from the same vendor at the same time & they were both approx. the same size when I got them
    &
    Both are potted in the same soil mix & are growing within a few feet of each other so they're growing conditions are also the same

    Like I said, it's no big deal
    Just Curious

    They probably look so different because there probably seed grown and not from TC. When you get seed grown, you get variability.

    Thanx

    Pretty much what I was thinking

    But dam, other than the pitchers they don't look anything alike
    Even the growth rate is way different

    Nice pics.

    Plant #1 looks more like the actual 'Red Leopard' cultivar to me. #2 looks like it's of the same grex but not actually the cultivar.

    The plant on the left is a TC Maxima x TM. You can tell from the leafshape.

    nate - AFIK, all of the maxima x xTM released by EP were seedgrown, and its the same size as my maxima x TM plant, and probably the other i had which i traded off to Yann awhile ago, he will have to chime in, but i agree its a maxima x xTM.

    So I was lied to / LOL
    {Got them both as Red Leps}

    The leaves do look similar to my Max X TM
    But the pitchers don't really look the same
