    splendiana x rokko

    I'd like to show this plant, now that it's 1 year old.

    I grew it from seed I got from tropics. Hilariously enough, this is the only seedling that survived under my conditions. The seed I got apparently went all over the place before it came here, so that may explain that. Anyway, it is developing extremely fast (and this is pretty much the only plant I keep a log of). I wish all my neps grew like this:

    At 7 months:


    At 10 or 11 months:


    Now (approx. 1 year). It has developed a nice red color on the leaves, even in relatively low light. The leaves are already bright red when they unfurl, but then they fade slightly to this:


    current pitcher:



    The plant is currently ~23cm (touch over 9"). It is making a 2.125" (5.39cm) on a 4.5" (11.43cm) leaf. The pitcher is still inflating as well. Hopefully it keeps getting bigger before opening

    Very nice . This should be an interesting hybrid with all that maxima in it. Although common, and not always universally liked, I really like Maxima.

    Thx for sharing .

    Would that incident have anything to do with accidental arid conditions? Been there.....

    Yessir. My humidifier broke for some reason about a week before I got back, and bno one bothered to tell me. Oh and the person taking care of my plants didn't like to give them water for some reason.
    As long as even 1 of those maximas survives, I'm happy. It's the only maxima I have

    Yeah they do. But not like that. I've never seen a seedling in perpetual overdrive.
