    The royal children: N. truncata QoHxKoS

    Hi guys,

    Found a very nice new truncata pitcher hidden away in the tank.

    Firstly, this is the common one I see...peristome folded back... on most of the seedlings.



    However, the second seedlings pitchers always hang and they show a very nice peristome. Infact, if I may say so...looks like a bonsai version of the Queen of spades.

    old pitcher...showing color



    This is what I am talking about,,,newest pitcher



    I dont know if this is genetic difference in both seedlings or if it is due to the fact that the pitcher was pressed against the back of the pot (reminiscent of N. veitchii growing vertically on a tree using its peristome to clasp the bark)

    How's everyone else's royal children coming along? Does anyone have pics of more original black truncata parent population?

    cheers,

    varun

    Nice flare! Mine are still curling back somewhat, but it might also be because I transplanted so it got a little miffed (like with the little lid):

    Vraev, those QoHxKoS both look amazing. I really hope yours stays flared, it's really does look like the queen. Keep us posted as the pitcher develops . I should be joining the royal family this week, as I'm getting the one that I won from HB .
    cheers,

    Two more.... the second (smaller) one had a very rough ride
    Evidently pretty robust, with the history of these two it's amazing either one is alive

    wow B! I didn't know you had two. Or are those two from the two growth points that you divided? Either way...looking great.

    @ Thez

    Very cute little plant. I am sure the little lid syndrome should be gone once it gets adjusted to your conditions.
