    These three pitchers are all currently present on the same plant. Interesting to see three generations simultaneously.

    Excellent images, Hans. This is a great hybrid. It produces handsome, vibrantly colored, long lasting pitchers. Yours is a dazzling example - great job!

    Thanks, guys. However, I can't really accept any kudos - it's just the climate

    And to think I didn't even WANT this plant in the beginning, when I swapped it for a surplus bical. It was quite large then, but pitcherless. Not being a great fan of the baroque veitchiis, I accepted it only because I'm one of those "mad collector" types (= I'll take anything that's not on my growlist)

    And look at it now...!

    Everything with spectabilis in it is just mind-bogling. ventricosa x spectabilis is another example. There's a gentleman here in Taiwan who has just crossed veitchii x spectabilis with one of his deep-red globosas (formerly "Viking"). Try to imagine that one!
