    All of your plants are grown extremely well, KPG. And, for some reason, your petiolata has me itching for the eventual introduction of N. pulchra into cultivation.

    That's the old code number. From mid 2004. I think they were tc, the invoice says "typical" which usually meant they were TC plants. There were some seed grown plants released back in mid 2003 but there is no code number. The invoice however says "assorted" which usually meant from seed at the time. So if it came in with the code number it's probably from 2004 or later.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Thanks for the info, Tony. My record keeping is not the best.

    Thank you all for the kind comments.

The original release of N. ventricosa x xtrusmadiensis seedlings mean a much greater number of individual clones out there. When EP listed cuttings of Sabre (a), (b), & (c), I wondered if they were from the original seedlings or the tc plants. I don't know if that was ever revealed.

    Your plant could well be the same as one of mine. As you know, environment affects color, plus ambient light makes a big difference as well. The first two plants were photographed out of doors, and the rather harsh sunlight gives the colors a "washed out" appearance.

    Just for fun, I dug out one of my old photos of one of the N. ventricosa x TM seedlings:

    Thanks for that info. My plant was a gift from a friend (as a cutting, a year ago) and I did not inquire as to its provenance. I might ask, now.

    Few odds and ends:

    N. ventricosa (k) #1 (EP'S designation)


    N. ovata (from seed)


    Pretty sure you recognize this:


    N. sibuyanensis x talangensis (EP)


    Cheers,
