    Would you people stop it already with the out-of-this-world hybrids? It's making it hard for me to maintain my species snobbery. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    Incidentally, why does the leaf look so truncated in the photo? Is that the way they are - like a truncata?

    N. veitchii does inhibit some degree of truncatation:

    N. lowii also does too but not nearly as exaggerated as N. veitchii, which probably leads to the more trucated leaves with both parents having some sort of it:

    The plant has grown since that picture indicated by the "older pic" and now the pitchers are presently at 6cm tall, around 2.5 inches. 2 more pitchers are on the way tho so who knows if they will be bigger or not.
