    its a cultivar that is a result of a cross between ventricosa and lowii......being seed grown all plants in cultivation originate from a single plant so the only way to get it is through cuttings.....given there is a huge demand for it and only so many cuttings taken by various ppl a year demand is likely to always exceed supply.....its not like its in TC or anything where they can make thousands of plants if they wish....

    yeah there are several different clones floating around i think i know of atleast 4 or 5, 'Peter D'amota' is just the most red of the bunch......saw a rather large plant of one of the other clones on ebay within the last 6 months so they are out there....the shape of the pitchers is reall close to the same on all, just have varying amounts of red.....

    its a pretty expensive plant too. mine cost me a fortune =[ but its very rewarding if you are willing to drop a portion of a paycheck. easy plant, mine grows as a windowsill plant with fluorescent lighting. the plant is just beautiful too deep red pitchers in really strong light.

    plants from the same cross are pretty similar in shape, but like rattler said, 'PDA' is just more red in color.

    good luck in your search! youll find one eventually!

    Part of the problem - as Peter D'Amato tells me (the person, not the plant) is that it puts out basals very slowly. Internodal distances in the vine are also very very small and the plant will grow leggy and spindly without developing any side shoots. If the growing tip is cut off, chances are the rest of the vine will simply wither and die. Those are some of the reasons given for the slow propagation of Peter D'Amato (the plant, not the person). Yet another reason for the high prices maybe that this plant is also a female.
