    Very nice coloration. Mine haven't actually seen the sun but the pitchers are coloring up similar. Nice!!

    You must be getting pretty good lighting for the leaves to bronze up like that. Mine is in a mini-greenhouse, with a Grolite over it. This pic is a few weeks old:

    N. kampotiana x maxima.

    I've grown a N. maxima that had very dark leaves, so it could come from there. I've never had a N. kampotiana so I have no comment from that side.

    Looked that one up as I have a tiny one and wanted to know the parentage.
    Looked it up on Humbolt's photo finder which has moved. They listed Splendiana as anamensis x maxima,
    and Mixta as northiana x maxima. If maxima is bringing the dark, it's in the parentage on both sides.
    Good growing, Jack

    Actually, the female plant used in making Splendiana was wild collected and ID'd back in the 1980's at the University of Florida as N. kampotiana. At a later point in time, all Indochina Neps were placed under either N. mirabilis, N. thorellii or N. anamensis. Recent taxonomic work in the field has resulted in N. kampotiana being re-instated as a species, separate from N. anamensis, which is a synonym for N. smilesii.
    The female plant used in making N. Splendiana by Bednar/Bramblett was either N. smilesii, or the true N. kampotiana.
