    Hi fc3srx713b:

    Not quite as easy as thorelli X aristolochioides, but i would treat it as a regular highlander.

    Hey,
    Mine is slower and touchier than thorelli x aristo, but then again everything is. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I'll get a pic later, but I also have never seen anything green, pitcherwise, on my plant. Your pic is a bit confusing though, as there are two plants there.

    I'm growing it as a true highlander, and might try intermediate with it. It's just recovering from an infestation, though, so I'll watch it a while longer. It's pitchering and growing OK now. Mine has made basals easily, and it seems to strike from cuttings with no drama.

    Here's the first true upper from my plant. And some lucky soul out there just received a cutting.

    That pitcher is exquisite! I LOVE the coloration along with the red peristome!

    Nice plant Steve!!

    Here's my ventricosa x aristolochioides. Since posting here a long time ago, I've discovered this plant is the most cold-tolerant that I have. It's been growing outdoors for me for about 16 months now, and never suffers literally unless it drops below freezing.
