    Exoticplantsplus is selling N. Truncata x Bongso. The traps are truncata-like and almost black. Jundging by the parentage it should be as easy to grow as N. x ventrata. Small ones are on sale for $30, big ones are a bit more.

    did you see tony's??
    http://www.terraforums.com/ib312....t=27476
    his is the same thing but the pic was taken better. its more of a very dark red and very dark purple. if you look at a dead pitcher you will see there is a VERY noticeable difference. ask tony for a full pic. he'll show you its not simply a dead pitcher but rather one of the most "evil" looking nep.

    It is difficult to get an accurate picture with the digital camera. It tends to lighten the color and make it look more purple than it really is
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
