    Yes, that's what i like about it. It is like having an albomarginata that likes highland conditions. I'll bet this plant will be very popular!!

    Where does it get that solid red colouration from? Is the highland veitchii red like that?

    Hi Colinliew:

    There are at least 5 different types of albomarginata and one of them is reddish in colour. I guess that one was used to make the hybrid with Veitchii.

    That is a cool nep. I have a N. albomaringata x maxima that didn't inherit the white stripe on the peristome, unfortunately. It does, however, have nice pitchers:

    This nep grows at a glacial pace, especially compared to my pure N. albomaringata:

    Is it an intermediate? Heck, I don't know! I won it in the BACPS raffle when it was just a pitcherless cutting. Since then, it lives in my house with the rest of my neps. Temps are about 63-75 degrees most days, min to max, sometimes a little higher. It's not what you would call a vigorous grower, but both new leaves made pitchers, and the next one looks good, too.

    Capslock, for starters your albomarginata is beautiful. Congrats. I hope you enjoy it for many years to come. Regading your albo X maxima hybrid , I have to agree with you. it is more of a maxima than anything else!!. One will have to get high to see the albomarginata in it!!. If you know what i mean!!.

    P.S. I am not promoting drug use!!. Just a joke!!
