    I know there's a 'Clone B' which has a flared peristome and therefore I make the leap of faith and say that there's probably a Clone A - which presumably I have. I've never seen one that takes strongly after N. lowii like the one in this thread but it is possible that other clones were made and propagated. It is also possible that someone made the same cross on their own and called it 'Sabre'. You are correct on the parentage though - CP Photofinder defines it as "N. ventricosa x x trusmadiensis".

    can someone clarify the parenting of N. "Sabre"
    i know that it's N. ventricosa x x trusmadiensis,
    how can be that many clones of N. "Sabre" ?

    so every N. ventricosa x x trusmadiensis can be called sabre.
    i know ep as 2 clones A and B (if i am not mistaken B got wide peristome),also he lists now clone C ,and there are lots of SG plants of this hybrid.
    so every single one of this clones can be called N. "Sabre" ?

    Technically, I don't think that any old cross can be called N. "Sabre" other than the original. Otherwise it becomes more of a GREX and there is an important horticultural distinction. However, all I'm saying is that someone may have made the same cross, and called it "Sabre" even though it shouldn't be. The whole 'clone A', 'clone B' thing is a bit confusing, if you ask me but it's not without its merits: For one you know the exact parentage of the plant, but you also know what to expect from each specific clone. I think it's a good compromise between cultivar names and grexes... but to the uninitiated it can be confusing as hell. Also it can lead one person to think that they're getting one plant and be swindled with another plant.

    OK here is the same pitcher now it has change d a bit so I thought id do an update on this one pitcher , the lid is smallish but i think its due to the very long transition acclimating to my conditions, i do like it a bunch though.

    That takes heavily on the N. x trusmadiensis. It almost looks as if there's no N. ventricosa in it. Nice!

    here is an up date on the first pitcher totally developed in my care, it looks a bit different than the one that was on the nep when I got it, I also think this one is some what bigger , I hope the color keeps getting darker, I did like the coloring on the first pitcher in this thread.
    .

    here is the new pitcher Last week.

    N. ventricosa x x trusmadiensis is one of my favorite crosses.
