    N. sanguinea bleeds

    Is it called N. sanguinea because of the color of the pitchers or because it bleeds real blood?

    Whoa! That's something you don't see every day. None of my sanguinea ever do that... They get dewy but I've never seen nor heard of pigmented nectar. I take it those are uppers? How big is that mesh in the background for scale?

    Joe, these are about 7-8 inch pitchers - and yes they are uppers. I got the red nectar on the lowers, too but not as much as the one pitcher above. I haven't seen it bead up like that. This plant is very happy these days so I think it's showing off.

    Nice. I have four or five sanguinea in a big group pot (freebies from a certain domestic CP vendor) and the largest pitchers thus far have been about 6" or so... still no uppers, sadly. I'll keep a closer eye on it and see if any of mine have red nectar, but I think I would have noticed by now if any of mine did that. Does the red nectar come from the peristome exclusively or is all the plant's nectar red? My sanguinea only produce visible amounts of nectar from the leaves and the undersides of the lids, so that could be it.

    my N. sanguinea orange produces that colored necter sometimes. weird. the only thing I don't like about the plant is that it produces so much necter that it will drip and get on anything surrounding it. N. sanguinea is my favorite nep that I own.

    I just think he used red food coloring. Just kidding that's pretty cool though. My sanguinea grew the fastest of all my neps until I got my black dragon.
