    Most Red Nepenthes?

    Good morning everyone!


    The other day I was looking at my beast of N. x 'Miranda' and I was noticing how really red the leaves are. I mean, they are REALLY freakin' red! So let me pose a question to everyone here, what is the Nepenthes with the reddest leaves? (Not pitchers, so, I guess, technically, the reddest petiole, but you know what I mean). I would love it if others posted pictures of plants they have in their collection that might be in the running for this title, but if you know of another species/hybrid that is very red, and dont grow it, please mention it.


    Anyway, here is my candidate, Nepenthes x 'Miranda,' grown in nearly full sun in my veggie garden.



    The last leaf:


    The newest leaf:



    Thank you everyone!

    N. burbidgeae and N. albomarginata from Genung Jerai seem to have the reddest leaves i've ever seen.

    The Borneo Exotics seedgrown N.hamatas get red leaves:


    as do their TC clone N.ovatas (top center... N.bongso MT is lower right)


    as does N.mikei (upper right)


    Andreas Wistuba's tentaculata the cheapest one gets red leaves too


    and I have a couple others I can get shots of tonight including the N.bongso from Malesiana Tropicals, and a seed grown Nepenthes campanulata x (spectabilis x talangensis).

    Check out these
    I'd have to say Jeremiah Harris's N. longifolia
    Even the growth tip is red.

    Exo, your burbidgeae looks like its a similar red to my N. x 'Miranda.' N. burbidgeae is fast becoming one of my favorite plants, though mine is still recovering from shipping/repotting.

    And D musicpula, that is absolutely out of this world!!

    Thanks, but that's not mine. I wish it were though
    Jeremiah's plants are always great.
