    Here's mine. I just got it like... I dunno. A month or two ago. Probably two.

    Reminds me of a rotting sausage. Sorry for the crappy angle. It's now got a second smaller pitcher and working on a third. Hopefully the third will be larger than the last. It really looks almost black and dead in person, even thought it's not dead at all. It's really cool to see such variation between plants.

    Wow! That pitcher reminds me of my truncata x aristo when I first received it, but there is no mistaking those ventricosa leaves.


    I wonder if that could be a feature of the lower pitchers, with this plant having a lot of intermediate pitchers that follow the coloring of the uppers. One of the more colorful upper pitchers I have seen.

    N. aristolochioides is very predominant as a parent in this hybrid!

    not bad! but I still would LOVE to get the aristolocoides pure. Ventricosa atleast for me isn''t that "pretty" of a nep. Thats just what I feel. I understand many here will disagree.

    DROOL at Capslock. That plant is AWESOME. I say your pick and actually said out loud "I love that plant." Then I realized I was talking to myself.

    Then I read the post below where someone else said it.

    I gotta get one. GOTTA.

    Hi all:

    this hybrid always intrigued me, because most aristolochioides hybrids tend to be more heat tolerant even those crossed with another highland such as sibuyanensis and spectabilis, but no this one likes cold weather, when most of us know that ventricosa likes heat during the day too.
