    Some Nepenthes have serrations on thier leaves but nothing like that! N. mirabilis is most notable for it's 'pointy' leaf sides. hybrids with it seem to carry the trait with them also.

    hi. im the guy that has the coccinea with the jagged leaves. the leaves have small points at the edge of each leaf. it feels weird if you run your finger along the edge. eatch jag is less than a milimeter. i think coccinea is supposed to have that [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] ? Zongyi (i will try to take a pic that is clear enough to see the little jagged edges.)

    The serrated leaf edge on N. coccinea is the mirabilis ancestry coming through. The serrations can vary in size, sometimes more pronounced than typical.
    N. truncata will sometimes produce a serrated leaf edge, especially on a new ground shoot.

    Wow. Are you saying that the serrated leaves are the coccinea leaves in that pic, or you have one that is a little serrated? I assumed it was the pale yellow leaf and the serrated ones were from something else.

    The big green leaves in the background are Philodendron selloum or a hybrid cultivar involving that species. The big out of focus leaf in the upper right is a N. coccinea leaf.
    Sometimes mirabilis will make a leaf that has more pronounced serrations than is typical. The serration points end in a white hair. They are fine in texture. Often this characteristic is passed on in hybrids with mirabilis in their background.

    That makes sense. Before this thread, the only thing I have ever heard of with bizzare leaves were the ruffled leaves of certain Sulawasi N. maxima forms/

    Those wavy-leaved maxima are nice. The N. Corn.bak (maybe the same as N. Gentle) has this characteristic. The oddity is when truncata ground shoots have pronounced serrations. As the shoot grows larger, they disappear and you get the smooth edged butterfly shape.
