    Looking good! Brokken, the (vent x sib) x TM hybrid, does all the seed grown plants exhibit the stripes from it's TM parent? Or the majority retains the reddish peristome of the former parent?

    Thanks guys!

    Roko: From the ones I've seen of the (vent x sib) x TM, a lot of them start out very red with even darker red red stripes. The pitchers become lighter as they get larger and have a tendency to darken as they become senescent.

    Along with Sib x TM, this was the other gift to myself that I got this Christmas. I thought it prudent to plant it right away rather than gift-wrap it and wait for Xmas day. This is perhaps the most beautiful N x tiveyi that I've ever seen and as a bonus, it's also a female. This pitcher did not develop in my care but rather came from Mitch Davis. I hope the plant will recover soon and start making my own pitchers some time in spring:

    Maxima x veitchii:

    maxima x veitchii H/L 'Sarawak' EP ~ Just in case you wanted it in writing for your awesome labels.

    Again, I have to take a deep breath every time I see that plant. Because it takes my breath away.. awww..
