    Does this matter about H.Pulchella?

    I'm looking at getting one of thses but there are these three different selections:

    Chimanta Tepui, Venezuela
    Amuri Tepui, Venezuela
    Akopan Tepui, Venezuela

    Now they look the same but I know they are from different parts but is there really a difference besides the price? This type looks nice by the way does anyone have it and is it a diva?

    H. Pulchella is very cool!
    I have had the Akopan form for a few years and it is really starting to look nice.
    The first picture is Pulchella Akopan, just recently divided into four plants. Two are not in picture. The others I just got last summer. They are nice too, just younger. They are all starting to color up pretty good.
    I think H. Pulchella is well worth getting.

    There might be differences in the course hairs in the pitchers from location to location.
    Some might have more or less of it. I think it's much better looking than regular H. minor.

    Those are nice. The ones on the web site though are much darker, they look almost black. Is this something that comes with age?

    The colour is relative to light intensity. Assuming you are looking at the page I think you are looking at what you are seeing is plants that are pictured in the wild at the tops of the tepuis where sunlight is very high intensity.

    This species is distinct form H. minor though at one time it was considered to be just a form of H. minor.

    Yeah that is a dirty prank they pull on you. I kinda figured that too. But I also read that plants like neps get darker or more colorful as they get older.
