YOU! Outta my gene pool!
I love the peristome and the way it shoots up and connects to the lid. Very nice pitcher. It also has some significant wings on it! I see from the picture you grow it inside; what are the lights you grow under and photoperiod you give it?
Thanks for sharing.

That's a very nice raf you have there, always loved the darkside... they have cookies...
Now for my Ventricosa Red, this guys my first Nep & I love this beauty. Got it at a nursery in the garden district of SF when I lived there as a little plant with abuncha big pitchersfor it's size, since then I brought it back to LI, then to Brooklyn and now at my place on LI by Jones Beach.
And this is an old picture, I think from like fall 2004 maybe
Now this here's a plant with the same cross as a Dyeriana I got from a Hawaiian grower, I recently picked up an unrooted cutting of a clone of the original Dyeriana so it will be interesting to see how these two grow side-by-side over time...
Deep Red Peristome
And another shot of the three guys together...
As you can see, the peristomes on this plant are a lot redder than the typical Dyeriana, like a deep red striping. I look forward to seeing what the uppers end up looking like...
