    I have been growing N. clipeata Clone U (not the clone I ordered but that's what I was sent) and the latest few leaves have me wondeing if it isn't some kind of N. truncata hybrid because as I understand it, N. clipeata has orbiculate leaves.

    This plant is only 8 cm in diameter total:


    Here is the latest leaf (5 cm) which is not yet fully expanded but looks very truncated:


    And the last fully expanded leaf (3 cm) which is not quite as square:


    Thanks for any thoughts, especially if any of you are growing this specific clone!

    Josh,

    I don't know which of the clones I got from Wistuba, but the shape of young plants' leaves do look truncata-like initially.

    Regards,

    Christer

    I wouldn't worry Josh, looks OK to me. Juvenile N. clipeata look that way. Characteristic leaf form and pitchers appear when the plant is over about 6" in diameter.

    Hi Josh,

    your plant looks like all small N. clipeata I've seen so far. Slightly older the pitchers look more mature:



    10cm pitcher from an basal offshot which emerged about one year ago.

    Cheers Joachim

    Thanks Joachim,

    Wow, that's a very excellent pink color! I'm expecting creamy white colored pitchers, Now I'm gonna be hoping mine looks like that! Do you know which clone you've got? Wistubas catalog has the same image for all N. clipeata clones and doesn't explain any sort of difference between them.

    How large was your N. clipeata before it created a basal shoot?

    Hi Josh,

    sadly I got my plant without a clone number so I can't tell which one it is. I won't expect Andreas knowing the differences between his clones because they all originate from the same cross made in Munich botanical Garden some years ago. (They had a much better staff at that time [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] )

    The diameter of the leaf rosette was about 40cm when the offshots appeared. From older plants I've seen this is the size adult N. clipeata will reach.

    Cheers Joachim

    So all of Wistubas are actually clip x eymae x clip? Or was that screw up done by a different BG ?
