    The Pitcher in the foto on the top is 16 cm high.
    I repeat,my truncata is a young one.
    I have noticed that with 32 Celsius in the terrarium here in Milan with the great hot weather ,the truncata has slow down its grow.I am trying to let her catch more fresh air as possible!

    Highland form of N. truncata is also a bit hirsute, I noticed, unless it is the image, that yours seems to be absent of any hair on the pitcher, lowland forms do have a bitof hait, but the highland is quite noticable, sort of like a veitchii, but not excessive!

    Hi,

    Since the N. truncata "reddish leaves" (Wistuba) was brought up, here is a quite recent photo of my plant. The pitcher is 16,5 cm on a 30 cm diameter plant.



    It looks more colourful than most lowland forms I have seen, so I'm leaning to that it has highland background.

    Regards,

    Christer

    The photo of you red leaf truncata looks nice. I find it interesting that your pitcher is very long tubular. Mine is very squat for a truncata. I really like the red leaf form. Can anyone share any light from this clone (I believe comes to us from Wistuba)?

    Hi again,

    Actually the pitcher before this one was quite squat and almost looked N. veitchii-like.

    Regards,

    Christer

    I've seen some very small plants of Christerb's and neglected to buy one....might have to change that around now that I've seen what a larger plant looks like! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
