    I have one of these. The pitchers are beautiful and tubby. This is one of my favorites.

    Yes! Yes yes yes! I JUST bought a N. spec x aristo. I had been wanting one for a while and I finally took the plunge.

    It just came in on Wednesday! SO HAPPY with it:





    Yours looks amazing - nice red and green colors. Do you grow yours under lights? In a windowsill? How old is that plant? I LOVE THESE THINGS

    one of my favorites also. Plus it stays so small, like glabrata.

    I too am quite a fan of this one. I think I have one coming in a trade, but I might be mistaken... I've recently been lucky enough to be offered several plants I've been drooling over for a long time - it's left my head spinning. Exciting!

    @Fury - Congratulations with your new arrival, then! I've had the plant for a little over a year now. Not exactly sure how old it was when I bought it. I grow it inside a two gallon apothecary jar for extra humidity. Here in Northern California the average winter humidity is about 44%. The plant grows in the windowsill where it gets a couple hours of natural light and then my 26watt CFL kicks in for another 7 hours. I think one of the reasons it does so well is because almost the entire plant is inside the jar. However, the growth tip is just reaching the rim! This may be a good natural way to acclimate it to low humidity?? I have 1 1/2 inches of pea gravel under the pot which I fill with water to create a nice humid environment.

    @Nightsky - Yes, I love these small species!

    @Joe - Good luck if/when you get yours They are great little climbers.
