    Wonderful Jeremiah! Certainly healthy plants!

    The macrophylla is looking like N. x Trusmadeinsis to me. The leaf shape is screaming N. lowii to me.

    AS for N. villosa and cold temps at night, it really appreaciates it, but of course doesn't require them that cold as a seedling, once it more mature, it will become more demanding, I myself have been keeping mine at around 48ish at night, I don't want to risk anything cooler that could possibly damage the other Highlanders, and N. villosa continues to grow and pitcher for me very vigourously.

    Nice photos man. I especially like the whole Macrophylla photo. Anyone who has been on this forum before would know that i am obsessed with Macrophyllas.

    I haven't seen a whole plant photo of macrophylla and Jaquelineae before, it was a treat to see. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I can't wait until my Macrophylla gets that large.

    I also want to get a Jaquelineae too, that picture just made me want it even more, i just can't find a place that has them in stock. (I think Tony carries them, but he doesn't have any in right now, at least from what the order form says. Cook's carries them too, but they aren't going to have them for quite a while.

    Tell me if you find any place with Jaquelineaes in stock please.

    One more thing. That is not a Macfarlanei. Before i got mine, i looked up about 100 pictures of what my macfarlanei would look like when i grew up, and that doesn't look like any of them.

    Jeremiah,

    What media do you use for the jaq? Mine grows really slowly and I am wondering if the media is the problem.

    I would say it's safe to say that the N. macfarlanei is not pure.

    As for the N. 'macrophylla'. I took some pictures as requested by Robin. Lousy weather so they will have to do. Also keep in mind that the plant Jeremiah shows would have originated from N. macrophylla seed while mine came from N. lowii seed. There could be some differences from that alone.
    First I will highlight why I think it's a hybrid.
    The points around the outside edge of the peristome in several places.
    The fairly broad peristome.
    The close spaced and less pronounced ribs
    The greater amount of constriction above the hip followed by more significant flairing just below the peristome.
    I think the pictures show these various traits if you look carefully, although you may not find ever single one in every picture.

    As I mentioned earlier. Time will tell! Particularly when the plant makes upper pitchers. I am not trying to take anything away from the plant, even if it is N. trusmadiensis instead of N. macrophylla, it is still a beautiful plant.

    Recap of Jeremiah's plant

    Couple small N. macrophylla 2-3cm pitchers



    N. macrophylla 7cm pitcher (comparable size to Jeremiahs I think)


    3cm N. trusmadiensis pitcher for comparison to N. macrophylla above


    Larger approx 7cm N. trusmadiensis pitchers

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Nice Trusmadienis, but i still like the Macrophylla. Btw, in the whole plant picture there, i've gotta go with Macrophylla, not trusmadiensis.
