I suppose instead of wings, i should have said peristome.
That grand N. veitchii peristome, much like a ship's sail, needs enough to material to truly show its best potential.
That is why i'm quite excited that a couple of my N. veitchii varieties have finally turned that corner and are starting to show more of their N. veitchii splendor.
Here is a small, just under 4", N. veitchii (K) pitcher from EP shot a few hours before high noon yesterday.
And here is a pitcher of AW's N. veitchii Batu Lawi, just a tad shorter than the pitcher shown above and below, showing it's most pronounced peristome yet, since i've had it.
Another shot of the N. veitchii (K), shot a couple of hours after high noon yesterday, in a highly reflective area, resulting in a brighter picture.
Now i'm really looking forward to seeing the next few pitchers on these two plants.
