    spectabilis x aristolochioides

    I've had this nep for about 5 months. So far, I'm very impressed. It's vigorous, adapted to my conditions without a hiccup, and the pitchers show great potential. The plant was about 1" in diameter when I got it, now it's about 4". The pitchers in these pictures are about 1" tall. I'm surprised at how dark they turn. They start out light, but within days darken up. This one seems to be a 'drooler' also.

    I know there are a few different clones out there - any of have pics of yours? Here's what my baby one looks like so far:

    Newly opened pitcher in terrarium:


    Color under sunlight:


    Now, here's a one month old pitcher in the terrarium:


    Same one in sunlight:


    Ok, just for fun I threw this one in. I love the pitcher spurs on this one -thorelii x (spectabilis x northiana):

    Yours is a beauty. Mine is still pretty small and has just started forming it's first pitcher. I'll post pictures when it develops if it's large enough to show any detail.

    :O It's beautiful even when little :3 I'll be receiving one soon about that'll be less than 3". I love the color change What conditions do you have it in? If I do it right, my conditions are high 82 - high 70s, and at night about low sixties - 58. I have horrible humidity...can reach a little lower than 40% sometimes, at night 50, maybe 60%, but if I spray, it goes a lot higher.

    Yeah, I can't wait to see what this looks like a year from now. But, there are different clones, so maybe your will be different.

    My temps are similar to yours, highs 78 - 82, lows 57-60. My humidity is 60-65% day, 75-80% at night.

    I think it's a very adaptable plant hybrid. I think it will be fine in your conditions after adjusting.

    Here is mine. Looking good so far, and is going to be a very promising cross as time goes on.





    Anyone else?

    Thanks for putting some pictures up of this plant. I was looking at grabbing one this last summer, but was reluctant because I couldn't find any decent pictures of them. Really nice plants guys. I can say that I'm jealous.
