    Attached is a shot of an N. aristolochioides upper pitcher. It was hanging at an odd angle, so I photographed it on a bed of moss. It's rather more elongated than the lower pitchers of the species, and is, of course, sans wings.

    Wow! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] That pitcher rocks! Now I'm REALLY psyched...I just got this plant about a week or 10 days ago...It's out on the porch railing. It's an itty bitty baby...only 3 inches across (well, I think a little more than that now...it REALLY likes our current weather pattern). There are currently TWO pitchers developing simultaneously.

    And Tony told me it might be difficult....

    The plant is five years old, and is a male. It is now producing its second flower stalk. You can see a picture of what the flowers look like on my website.

    This species really likes cool nights, so be aware that it may prove difficult to cultivate under warm conditions!

    phantastic picture (and phantastic plant) !

    "...It's an itty bitty baby...only 3 inches across..."
    3 inch? You don't know what a really small plant is, hmmm....

    Mine is 1 1/2 years old and still less than 2 inches across. I believe that the nights in my terrarium are defintly to warm for it to grow well

    For _me_ the slowest growing species of all, even my villosa is faster.
