    Oh it is a great plant, very fast and easy growing, and the pitchers last for ages.

    The 'fake' macros aren't N. x TM, they are N. macrophylla x xTM. At least that is the theory. Wistuba also has more than one clone, some people say on is pure...

    Looks a lot like Trusmadiensis.

    I would agree with you myself but well over half the people I have ever asked in person that have seen N. Trusmadiensis and N. macrophylla in the wild say it to hard to tell or that looks like N. macrophylla to them.

    N. Trusmadiensis in the wild.


    So honestly I have no idea other then it is a awesome plant.

    Macrophylla in the wild exhibits the flared peristome, but they have much more pronounced teeth than the 'fake' ones.

    Either way, like jeremiah said, they're are beautiful

    I've noticed that Trusmadiensis seems to have many more teeth, that are shorter and less pronounced, which I've seen in specimens in cultivation, and in that picture posted right there.

    However, the pitchers on Jeremiah's plant (while stunning, yes), look very....Macrophylla-y to me, especially in the first picture of it. And in the newer pitchers, while the flaring is odd, it's not the same kind often derived from Lowii-influence, and it doesn't have any striping/redness in the peristome that Lowii crosses seem to have. Also, the teeth are more sparse and more defined.

    Not only that, but in the second picture Kris posted, that pitcher seems to have the same...larger teeth and slight flaring of the peristome that Jeremiah's has.

    Of course, I know diddly about genetics and traits and all, but I'm just making a humble opinion and observation using logic from what I have seen.

    Here is the most similar looking wild plant I have seen to the AW clone.

    Here is an even more N. lowii looking N. Trusmadiensis...note no hairs under the lid...

    Thanks Jeremiah for the pictures, but do you or anyone have a picture of a larger plant for the AW clone that is the real one?
