    Nepenthes lingulata can also get pretty dark.

    N. lingulata is a rather incredibly rare plant however. Lucky me that I have a variegated seedling
    There are dark lowlanders, as has been pointed out, though usually select clones of species. Black amps, raffs, gracilis, albo and even mirabilis all exist but are typically very difficult to find, as are the species like treubiana (which isn't black but can get dark), but there are plenty of intermediate hybrid options. izumiae x veitchii, izu x maxima, etc. 'Rebecca Soper' is a nice plant with dark pitchers, true to its ramispina x ventricosa parentage, as is the similar plant "Black Knight." N. Black Dragon is another good one, very tolerant in my experience and has dark lowers and moderately dark uppers.
    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.

    Well, it's taken some time but my EP order arrived yesterday. I missed out on an izumiae x trusmadiensis rooted cutting but did get a couple of ramispina hybrids that were a dark plum.

    Oh, and this :

    I like the darker colored pitchers personally
    I love N. Mikei (or however its spelled!)
    Still on a personal hunt for that plant for my own collection as well as to share, but always get beat to buying one !

    Not all of them do. People associate them with that color because a small handful showed that color, and that was the color pitcher that was widely photographed. Most are greenish or brown shades.
