    Variations in N. belli

    I was just wondering if there are multiple forms of N.belli? Many of the other lowland species seem to have several different colorations or forms. I am very interested in N.belli species plants and just making a wish list if there are several different colorations or locations I would like get them all listed.
    If anyone has photos of belli I would really like to see them.

    N. bellii* (extra 'i')
    I love N. bellii but like Dex, haven't heard of any variations. It's too under rated sadly.
    I do have a N. bellii x truncata that is looking pretty cool though.

    I have found a couple photos of belli with a location attached to the photo but not much in cultivation. I guessed that with all the variations in ampullaria that belli might have some variation as well.

    From what I can remember there are two types of N. bellii in cultivation. The first one of the standard form, the second is the squat form. I've never grown N. bellii, so I can't say this for certain.

    Some plants get no respect. Maybe not enough have been collected to get the different forms. Remember seed grown plants tend to give slightly varying forms due to genetic variation. Not all humans are the same. Same principal.
