    I am beginning to wonder what I have got. Mine looks nothing like that although it is still young. It gets plenty of artificial light. Enough to make other neps turn colors especially my miranda whose leaves are a nice bronze color but this one is still all green. And the wings on mine are very large and stick out 2 to 3 times as much as these pics.... Hmmm.

    obregon562 you are correct. Seed grown plants do have variation, sometimes extreme variations. I think I got the pale kid of the bunch. Just a slight hint of red in the oldest leaf and pitcher.

    Here is mine (click on link for larger image).

    Here are a few pics of my N. splendiana x mixta.

    My favorite of the bunch.

    Hi Folks,
    Good looking seedlings! For reference purposes, this cross was made in 1986 by Bednar/Bramblett (Splendiana x Mixta Superba) and they called the grex N. Dianiana. I think we may actually have one somewhere in the greenhouse, but I recall the plants at Bruce Bednar's greenhouse back in the mid 90's as having the reddish leaves when grown in bright conditions. This attribute may have come from the kampotiana parent as well, because some of the plants brought in from overseas were very reddish in color, both leaves and pitchers.

    T.

    Thanks for the info, I was wondering where the more bulbous influence came from in my second pic. Seems to be some good variation in these seed grown guys. Thanks to the TF member for the seed trades !

    Droseraguy,
    Your squat pitchered plant reminds me of one plant Bruce has he calls "Dianiana Rex". It has large squat pitchers. I would suspect the squat shape may be the influence of N. northiana.
