    Gert (Extreme Plants) was selling these at EEE2011. I was chatting to someone there who bought it to see if it makes any interesting crosses.

    I find it makes purpurea very un-carnivorous, but it does look interesting and I think it may have some good crossing potential.

    as s. purpurea is already the least carnivorous, i reckon this might actually make it slightly more successful in that the overhang prevents 1 in 8 bugs from flying out so easily

    Ditto. Ugly,very ugly. Looks diseased and unhealthy. And $50? Hmm.

    I'll pass. S. purpurea "Phoenix", on the other hand, will be worth waiting for.

    i think it is pretty neat. i would like to see its cross with S. "super green giant". i would also like to use complex hybridizations to try and create a blue specimen!
