    Nepenthes 'Red Dragon' arrived!

    The N. 'Red Dragon' I recently ordered arrived! It came in pretty good shape except one leaf was damaged.

    The whole plant:
    An OLD broken pitcher, the only fully developed one on it:
    The newest leaf was broken:
    The red apical meristem:

    Very nice looking Red dragon there. How easy is that hybrid to grow? I may have to try one of those some day, lol. I would have to grow it as a lowlander though.

    Seems to be pretty bomb proof so far! I've just had it out on the patio once temps stayed above 38*f and it hasn't missed a beat! Every leaf so far has either produced a pitcher, or is currently inflating a pitcher. It has produced 5 leafs so far in my care since february and 2 pitchers. The first pitcher was 2 inches and really drab, this second pitcher is just a tad over 3 inches and starting to color up. Also the plant seems to be speeding up quite a bit now that temps have been in the 90's in the day and 60's at night. I bet it would do well as a lowlander as the parents are both more or less intermediate (bokorensis and truncata)

    Also I forgot to mention it has already produce a basal for me which now has 4 leaves and is 3 inches in diameter, it produced this about 2 weeks after I gave it a cup of joe, though this might have just been coincidence.
