It's time to rebuild a bit after a bad summer (eg see "Ode to Raccoons" in the Nepenthes forum), and i've reconfigured to have more lowland space (so much easier to maintain in my present circumstances). *

N. sanguinea "Dark Red" *- Truly sanguine in coloration.

Another photo, showing the pitcher inner color and spotting, and the red coloration of the leaf veins in full sun.
This does great with bright light, putting out lots of large pitchers that hold on the plant for reasonably long times, even in ambient Boston indoor temperature and humidity. *I have kept Mr. Sanguine on my windowsill since i got it, and it has been through drought and flood with flying colors.

Gracilis develops a very healthy-sized root system. *For example:
