    I noticed in a couple posts back there was a taller pitchered plant more like mine , most on here are tubby , Im wondering if it will be a different sex from all of the others , have they been identified as a group more male or female ? are they both ?? can they be different sexes or will they all be one sex??

    I didn't even notice the pitcher difference until you pointed that out but yes it does seem taller! My plant has a new pitcher that is quickly developing and I will post that picture when it opens so we can see if all the pitchers are going to be exhibiting the tall trait

    I'm a little late to the game, seeing that my little seedling hasn't even developed a broad peristome yet. Still, it's a little N. robcantleyii seedling, and it's already BLACK.

    The species is really unique. It makes an excellent display plant given the growth pattern - compact and rosette. The pitchers last a long time. The pitchers are dark and tough so when they wither, they are not ugly and do not stick out like a sore thumb. And it's really not fussy about being moved around and about (BE has brought the parents all over the world).

    I can't grow the species well in my ambient conditions. But since the cool house at the national garden has them, I'll gladly pay the entrance fee to enjoy them for a day...which reminds me that I ought to check out the annual pass...hmm....

    Ron, what are your conditions like and have there been changes recently? Basals have not been observed by Rob in the 3 original plants (since the last time I ask).
