    What the fusca???!!!

    This is a strange looking N. fusca that I received from Jack and Jeanie at Hawaiian Botanicals via Borneo Exotics. (If any of you ever end up in Richmond BC, be sure to drop in at their greenhouse/nursery and say hi. They are very friendly folks and have a great little place there. Unfortunately they only ship within Canada though.)

    The pitchers have a flared striped peristome on a needle thin wasp waisted waif of a pitcher body.

    Here is an older pitcher.


    The leaves are also strangely truncated and heart-shaped.


    Here is a closer shot of the upper half of the newest pitcher to open. The peristome will darken over the next little while.


    This is still a small plant, so it will be interesting to see what it starts to look like as it matures some more.

    Those features are all common to fusca, I believe, but in this plant they certainly appear... exaggerated. Interesting indeed!

    This is the N. Fusca "Flared" form relesed a little while ago. A nice plant indeed!

    I agree, the features are a bit exaggerated but it looks within the description.

    Neat. Looks fine to me, though.

    Clever title. xD
