    Very nice plant. Miranda is a really great looking plant, especially when big and robust. I absolutely love how this plant is such a fairly common plant while the parentage is still in dispute.

    I also have to say that I love that ruler!

    What are the supected parents? At a glance it just looks like truncata x (truncata x alata (spotted)) or something like that.

    Zero: This is funny coming from you because I'm always thinking the same about your growing and xvart's as well in particular, I'm envious of the highlanders you can grow and the fact how you guys grow yours (from terrariums, refrigerators, garage, etc.) So the hawaiian climate thanks you very much.

    Narnar: As Ant as already stated 'No'. N. rajah is large but there are plenty others that get huge, truncata, samatrna, northiana, rafflesiana, bicalarata, truncata hybrids, and many more.

    Ant: thanks for the info.

    Xvart: Thank you and I too enjoy the ruler... didn't realize the irony of the writing on it. I wish there were more readily available northiana hybrids with their profound shape and colors.

    Ah, shade cloth. I was going to express my surprise at your plant's green leaves while growing outside. My Miranda is purple-red all over and I grow it under lights. Have you ever experimented with less shading? The pics look great, in any case.

    seedjar: I've got a few more pics of another and some older pics, but no purple leaves, should see how much light they need for the purple.

    Ant: That rajah is bigger. Funny I do that a lot.

    the temperate is fluctuation between 60-70F, 50% humidity, and it's growing under 4 54 watt T5 light bulbs (2 of the bulbs are 4100k and i think the other 2 are 5600k). The light turns it's leaves a reddish bronze color. It grows in peat. Other plants that grow right beside it are: ventrata, rafflesiana, ampullaria, and caesar. It's slowly making leaves, but no pitchers :/
