    N. inermis will generally have the slightest pink or red tinge in only the lower most pitchers, all color disappears when the peristome disappears.

    On the poster "Nepenthes of Sumatra", there is a photo of an upper pitcher of N. inermis with reddish spotting.

    I'm no taxonomist - just thought it was interesting.

    Charles Clarke's view is that inermis is always pure green (both lowers and uppers) based on his observations in the wild. It would seem that red tinting is the influence of some hybridisation.

    Interesting, I would always trust Charles too, but out of curisosity did you know how amny plant he happened to observe? Perhaps he observed a small population, I know for a fact mine is N. inermis, but lowers always display a bronzy or reddish tinge, not really high, but it is certainly dectectable.

    I think Charles is reasonably familiar with the wild populations of inermis, as he and Troy do tours of Sumatra for Nepaholics every year. So it would be a substantial number. He says that inermis in the wild is always green. Whether that is due to the conditions under which they grow in the wild v. cultivation or not, we can only speculate.
