    Hi,

    I'll forward your question, Rob. Maybe I can get some infos on possible species this one could be.

    Of course I did buy two plants back in may which should be identical - what I still do strongly doubt. The second one looks more like N. lowii to me:

    Hi,

    the seeds of these two plants were collected back in 1994 on Mt. Kinabalu but not from the seller I got it from. Sadly the TC lab multiplying these plants did mix N. lowii also from the same batch of seeds collected and the "N. villosa" two years ago.

    I've seen the same clone about six years old grown very hard. It still did look very similar, only being about 4cm high and having a diameter of about 5cm.

    The suggestion from the seller, who did of course send me a very generous replacement for these "wrong labeled" plants, is to wait another ten or fifteen years to see what it will be [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Joachim,

    If it turns out to be a N. x kinabaluensis drop me a mail if it makes mature pitchers ;-)

    Thanks for the info Joachim. Ah well, I guess it can't be N. hurrelli then. What a pity! Yep, the second photo looks more like N. lowii to me. Still surprisingly hairy though; I'll have to put on my spectacles the next time I look at mine! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Lab mixups are quite common. Even if the chance of making a clerical error is very small when a species is subcultured in the lab, as the years go by the overall chance increases since subculturing is usuall done every 3 to 8 weeks. Many species look the same in the jar, and similar when first planted out.

    Wow. Looks amazing. Would you care to share any tips on germinating Nepenthes seeds?
