    That 'Purple Haze' is gorgeous, Chris. (But so is that ephippiata hybrid.) I have a clone of N. Viscarla that is very dark like 'Purple Haze' also.

What makes you think that it's a parent? Either way the hybrid is gorgeous! If I had to guess I'd say that dark alata as a mom and maybe sanguinea as the dad. Cheers!
    Yeah I never would've guessed it; but I cheated ;-) I've got some photos of the grex, and this looks like it only darker. I hope to visit ******* soon and will check out how they have progressed.

    intermediate pitchers getting huge:
    'Courage' - 'Rokko' x Albomarginata, dark - (thorelii x maxima) x albomarginata, dark 


    loving the almost Burbidgeae-like colors on this one, it's been open for awhile and was even lighter before
    'Caesarion' - 'Caesar' x Veitchii - (Merrilliana x Truncata) x Veitchii 


    another one where I should've taken a photo last week when the peristome was fully extended:
    'Riddler' - Spathulata x (Veitchii xx Tiveyi) 


    crazy inflating pitcher
    Probably Alata x Truncata

    Wow! Your Caesarion is so big already! Mine are still only about 2-3 inches across. I like what I see though, can't wait for mine to get bigger
    I also love the Courage! It's a giant albomarginata!

    I second that on the 'Courage' plant, the color and size are fantastic! The tricolor pattern on the inside is something I'm not sure I've seen before.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Thanks! yeah, the pitcher is actually longer than it looks in the photo, I tilted it so you could see the inside, very camouflage-like.

    I've got 4 Caesarions, two very small and two bigger. The small ones really didn't like the extreme light levels this summer (20% shade cloth w light from noon on) while the two bigger ones just loved it and went crazy with growth. I added some 70% shade cloth and now they are all making huge leaves but slightly smaller pitchers. I'm probably going to keep the shade cloth up for another few weeks but after that summer heat should be much less, and I'm sure the big ones will appreciate it.

    freshly opened 'Caesarion' - 'Caesar' x Veitchii - (Merrilliana x Truncata) x Veitchii  


    couple of weeks later:


    Eymae x Ephippiata 


    'Lorraine' (singalana x boschiana) 


    Unknown Green Truncata Hybrid - best guess 'Sultan' - (clipeata x ventricosa) x (truncata x veitchii) 


    'Charity' - (spathulata x (maxima x (northiana x veichii))) 


    'Wrigleyana' (mirabilis x (rafflesiana x ampullaria)) 


    'Miranda' ((maxima x northiana) x maxima) 



    who needs to buy baby corn when you have a 'Red Leopard' (Ventricosa x Maxima). He just won't stop flowering, every week or two I have to pick all them off.
