    Truncata's usually have a fluted red peristome and large squarish red to purple to even blackish splotches in the throat in the pitcher. Leafs are typically green to light green but in the highland form they are reddish.

    Well. I know what truncatas look like... I've seen striped peristomes (or maybe that was a diff plant... maybe nto tho! heh...), solid red, then theres the black variety rampuppy showed us... I was just wondering what this particular clone looked like...

    No idea. You'd have to ask Phil. BTW, many clones of truncata usually are pretty much the same.

    I know the pitchers on mine have peristomes that start out green with some red stripes, turning to a dark orange striped with red over time. The top of the pitchers and the wings tend to develop a little bit of red, but for the most part, stays green. The only other reds on the plant are on the growth point, and petioles in bright light.

    Just curious, when will the pitchers start developing their characteristic shape? The pitchers it is putting out now, about 3" looks nothing like pics of large mature truncatas. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    The pitchers are still Polymorphic, they shoudl morph into mature ones soon enough. Truncata will make huge pitchers in a very short tiem but it isn't the fastest grower, so better since it takes longer to grow but in that tiem it make be making a larger nearer mature looking pitcher.
