    I don't like to spoil your fun, but your pic looks like a hybrid N.
    ventricosa as N. sibuyanensis has the distinguishing red edges
    to the leaves.

    Tamlin pls email Phill
    like mine fullfilled?

    Fulfilled, I suspect you're right, I've had niggling doubts about the ID of the plant myself. I've seen a couple of other plants that were distributed in Europe as sibt-28 at the same time and neither of them looked as they ought to either. Not tubby at all, too thin and waisted, and much too fast growing. Exactly what you would expect from a ventricosa x sibuyanensis cross.

    I stand by my Sept 16th pic as being of a genuine sibuyanensis, though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Cheers,
    T.

    Sibs don't necessarily have the red leaf margins. Mine had them when it first arrived, but no new leaves have them under my care, probably due to lower light.

    All right, I'll bite and listen. Here are a few pictures of all three plants I received labeled "sibuyanensis".

    All of them grow REALLY slow, and all of them have developed many dark nectar glands all over the plant by now.

    So....what say you?

    Guess I'm not lucky with sibs. The first "baby sib" I bought was labeled "pervillei", later the vendor apologized for the mislabelling and told me it was a sib. Then I bought another one (the one with the juicy red pitcher) and was convinced I had the real thing.
    In fact, people in other forums have been skeptical as to its true nature, too.

    So, the only way I see for me to learn from it is to buy a REAL, ADULT sib (impulsive beast that I am, I just ordered one 10 minutes ago from a reliable source), put it next to the other three and see how they differ over the next few months.

    If the three I have turn out to be hybrids, oh well, so be it. Fortunately I'm not a nep elitist, I grow each and every single one of them that chooses to show up on my doorstep!

    Thanks for the edification, everyone, I certainly learned a lot from this, and I'll let you know how it works out (in about ten years, at the growing rate they're displaying now)
