    Nepenthes rafflesiana Appreciation Thread!

    Nepenthes rafflesiana is my favorite species Nepenthes. It comes in every color: black, red, green, white, tricolor, spotted, or striped. It can be squat, tall, or flipping massive. It can have toothy or solid peristomes, tremendous wings, or flared tendrils. So any pictures you have of your unique forms, please post them! Iíll start it off with my three forms (a fourth is on its way).

    N. rafflesiana 'Bruni Squat x (Kondo x Singapore Giant 6).' This pitcher is from Jeremiah, I intend to replace it with the one forming in my care tight now.

    Here's a N. rafflesiana 'Squat x Alata.' This pitcher is from Tony, it's also working on its first pitcher in my care.

    A baby picture of a N. rafflesiana 'Bruni Squat x (Kondo x Singapore Giant)' about ready to eat an ant.


    A N. rafflesiana (not sure the type?) that has since passed.

    Those are some of the nicest raffs I have ever seen! I love the second one, is it a black form of alata?
