    The dragon has awaken...

    And he's hungry....

    Nepenthes Black Dragon



    I'm really excited, this guy was almost a total surprise to me, the pitcher is one of my largest so far and was growing in secret behind and under my table. I can't wait till this begins a basal so I can spread this monster into other collections.

    Lovely. That's been one of my favorite neps from the get go, but has now become nearly impossible to find anywhere. You see lots of pics of red and marble dragons, but black seems to be less common. Great pics, and good growing! It's always great to find a surprising pitcher hidden behind something!

    It's like; how much more black could it be? And the answer is none. None more black.

    Great looking specimen, Nate. That's awesome to get a surprise like that! I almost prefer that redish/purple color to the darker "black" as the pitcher mature. I noticed a couple of tears on the peristome. Does this happen to every pitcher on your N. Black Dragon? My larger N. Black Dragon would do the same thing on nearly every pitcher, as would my N. Red Dragon.

    One of the best features (in my opinion) of N. Black Dragon is the huge vaulted peristome. It is so tall and steep. I loved watching this species

    It will darken a lot. You can see the color difference in two different pitchers from the same plant on my first N. Black Dragon in this post (rattler now has this plant); and the progression of coloration here (ellisonk001 now has this plant).

    Yeah... Nate's growroom is BA.
