    Have a look at the pictures on the Borneo Exotics website of the plant in habitat and see for yourself.

    Thanks for the responses. I saw a very cheap truncata and I was wondering if it was too good to be true www.cobra plant.com. It was for a small plant in a 4 inch pot (so the plant must be about 4 inch) for 12.95. I've bought from them before but that seemed like a mistake, I dont think Nepthes are their specialty. Still for 12 bucks might at least try it.
    Thanks again

    I looked at the site. Your correct it is too good to be true. You could contact them and ask but I am 99.99999% positive it is not a highland form of N. truncata they are selling. Probably just put it under the wrong catagory.

    Endparenthesis - Looking really nice. I like the photo with the older pitcher in the background.

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

    i purchased a truncata from cobraplants.com maybe six months ago. i can't remember which catagory it was listed under then, he's still pretty small & green. little bit o' red on the lips but nothing special. very slow growing.

    What form would grow well outside here in NE Florida? I grow mostly highland and some intermedate outside. In about 2-3 hours of direct sun.

    What about veitchiis? What difference between the highland and lowland forms (besides the obvious answer that one likes it cooler...)?

    This has been answered before, and you'll find the answer on several Nepenthes websites, including this one. Do a google search and you'll get all the info you need.
