    Sorry, but it is. It can't help it, it was root bound for 5 years...

    Okay, I got this thing on our trip to the Gardens last month. Someone who was with, remember? They were 5 years old, but tiney from being root bound so long. They were free, but not the N. x edinsomethingerother, the other ones. Yah, remember the tiney little all green non-descript ones they needed to get rid of? I think Nick got one too. I can't remember what it was called. I want to say N. alata, but I don't know were I am getting that from and mine has had it's only trap shrivel up and die making IDing a wee bit hard... I shouldn't call it ugly, but lets face it, a tiney little trapless nep just aint much to look at lol [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Anyhow, part of why I must know is for my webpage, but the other is so I can fine tune it's growing conditions and untill I know what it is, that is a bit difficult.

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Thank you for any help you may give, I want to make it purdy so I can stop refering to it as the ugly little one over there to people to viset my collection lol.

    In bleak description the waves come crashing; battering the very instinct of every lusting moment to fulfill this gaping desire. A mouth as dry as soot and how it once had tasted of life, fit within a momentís time; And how those fleeting days laid in the light of blissful suffering. -me

    Oh yah, great thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I thought it was a hybred, just couldn't think of which one it was. I do remember that the big one they had was nice looking. Okay then, I think maybe I will try and squeeze it into my highland tank since that has higher humidity... I don't really have a lowland tank so it's not like is really an option... cept this isn't a clone, it's a seed plant so it's going to have to be labled as the parent cross... >_< anyone remember which plant was the father and which the mother?

    If it originated in Australia, the spathulata was the female, the veitchii the male.
