    Looks like N. macrophylla. Usually see some stripes and alot more red color on the peristome on young N. xTrusmadiensis.

    On the N. lowii. 1" pitcher you might start seeing some bristles here and there. But I wouldn't rule it out that it's not a pure N. lowii yet. Can you post a picture of the plant and pitchers?

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

    Sydney neps, I am calling it a mystery plant because I think it has too many teeth. I guess it could just be the natural difference between clones though. Thanks for your opinions Guys.
    Jay, I agree with Joe though, you may want to pick up another clone. Besides you can't have too many lowii, right?

    That's right -- you can never have too many lowii! BTW, I also think that your plant is N. macrophylla. The flanges are more robust than what one typically sees on macrophylla hybrids.

    Also, regarding the growth rate of your lowii, I am surprised that it is as slow as you indicate. Most of my plants from G. Trus Madi produce a new leaf and pitcher about every six to eight weeks or so....

    Unless it's the seldom(never) seen hybrid between N. macrophylla and N. edwardsiana... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    OK. Moved the little bar sinister (ette?) outside this morning to brave the elements with its cousins. No sunscreen nor Gore-Tex jacket provided.

    Think that it's time for this lazy, spoiled Neppie to learn that life is stern and life is grave.

    Goodbye, gravy train - Tough love, ahoy!
