    so...does such a plant exist in real life?

    so, there's a plant that i'd love to have...the only problem is the fact that i don't know if it even is a real plant....yet.

    please hear me out.
    i'd love to find a nepenthes that possesses a "wine shape" pitcher figure--something like an eymae, or jacquelineae (elongated though), that is lime green colored. Add to that, molted with purple speckling. and a large but flat permistone like jacquelineae or platychila but with the stripping design of a spectabilis.

    does a plant like that even exist? if not, what would be the name of a Nepenthes (natural or hybrid) that closest resembles what i'm talking about?

    Not sure if it exists, but if it doesn't, it could maybe be produced as a hybrid from the infundibular species you mentioned (not to mention inermis, of which I'm pretty sure there are lime green forms.) N. maxima would possibly be a good candidate to add the striping, being closely related to eymae. I know I haven't seen a picture of anything like that - I'm pretty sure I would remember that.

    that is quite a nice platychila specimen. the only reason i have against it is the coloration of the speckling...it's more red than purple, like a nice dark purple would be super spiffy.

    Isn't wine a liquid? Sorry to add no real value to your post, but I had to say it.

    Maybe a pitopangii ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nepenthes_pitopangii ) crossed with a nice dark red jacq, maybe with a bit of eymae to round it out?

    Never seen N. pitopangii before...but i will agree it looks super sexy....

    something else crossed my mind, what if we inversed the color of the pitchers? a purple/burgundy body with lime green flecks? with a lime green candy-striped permistone?

    @dash---argh! i meant "wine-shaped"
