EP is well known for their red colored truncatas. I have also found that they also have a good quality striped peristome truncata as well. These are current forms of their greenhouse bred stock.
This is a current form of their current generation of truncata. Many show high peristomes in fine striping on a deep orange chestnut base color. Some of these should turn redder like their original forms.
These are from plants from their second offering of starting the line. These are showing stripes like the original forms.
This original seedling is what is expected from their earlier forms. Note the intensity for orange and reds. This is from my first purchase of greenhouse bred truncatas from EP. I always have to check to make sure this isn't a veitchii x truncata hybrid. I would be very interested to see what else may arise from some of their greenhouse bred stock. I have begun to stockpile a greenhouse with many of their seedling plants. The goal is to see what variations arise from these stock. I have also grown massed quantities of BE's highland form and found out that they all resemble a few variations of chestnut colored and on the rare occasion, a stripe or two. I hope by later this year, I will be able to post the many variations of these true seed grown forms and their variations. Among the well known reds, many have produced stripes, dark browns and a few close to maroon-black.

The red striped form is really nice. Does EP have a "clone" name for that one or is it purely by chance that you have that color variation? I'd love to grow that striped slightly red tube one as a houseplant if I can get a clone like yours.

Joel, I purchased a batch every so often and everytime I do, my original intention was to sell them. But as they color up, it gets harder to part with one or another. My original intent was to save all the reds until they mature and color up better. Now I am also finding out wonderful stripes and even more recently, I have found a few deeper colored pitchers. I have recently moved a bunch to a growing area where they can be graded and labeled for breeding. I also have BE's highland clones and they don't grow well for me either. The ep seedlings have passed the much older BE clones and are taking on some nice colors and forms. If you can't grow them cold and I have difficulties growing them warm, then who's growing them well? Post yours if you have a highland BE clone. I am curious of who has one that is doing anything.

I had a BE clone. I grew it outside with temps between 105 and 40° over the course of about 7 months. In that time, it only put out 1 leaf w/ pitcher, then looked like it was going to put out another, but stalled and stuck that way for about 3 weeks. Then, one day i woke up and was surprized to find that thouhg it was 72° the day before, it was now 18° (with wind chill) and my truncata was dead. Awesome.
Med school is KILLING ME. If you want me to see something, PM me. I don't read everything on here like I used to.
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
