    Looks just like my HCW, gets more white as the pitcher matures.

    That kitten is sure growing, sooo cute. Your orchids are gorgeous!

    Beautiful pics, as usual... Love the Birthday Surprise, it's got such nice veining on the top of the lid.

    Looks like a HCW to me.. Just doesn't have it's fall pitchers out yet. My HCW, and many other clones in different collections, look just like that most of the season and are accurately labelled as one clone or another of HCW. I've seen pictures of certified HCW plants with much deeper green venation than this specimen.. There are also many factors that play a role in the white-ness, or amount of anthocyanin produced in HCWs. They can have been recently divided, or from different environments. Divisions of many pure-white plants can appear very green, due to stress and other influences. Granted, the definition states that a HCW has to show a pure white pigmentation, but it's hard to define that when two divisions of identical genetics can exhibit significantly different pigmentation, with one qualifying as a "true" HCW and one not. I'd bet pretty good money that this specimen is an HCW.

    I got this guy from a reputable source. The plant is young, and is just starting to make it's pretty spectacular pitchers. I'll wait a few more weeks, and then take more pictures. For now, look closely at the last HCW picture, it is a different pitcher, and it's starting to show the "vanishing veins" and all white lip I've seen on other HCWs.


    Wireman, that's a... it's a.... I forget. Oh. C. fimbriatus. This is the female.

    I like N. miranda, too. It's big, it's showy, and it's pretty easy.

    If you haven't seen it, look for a somewhat old thread from this spring (ish) titled "Miranda going risqué". It's a fun oops pitcher.
