    Rob,

    I don't remember asking on this forum, but the variety of color(and lack of) in N. sanguinea is a common question of mine. It took me a while to find a red one, and I assumed for a while that everyone I saw on a pricelist without a color was green or green speckled. The quest for the large red form was ,in part, my doom with the USDA. For some reason, I find the pitcher shape to very pleasing with this species, even though it does not have teeth, fangs, claws or any other cool apendages.

    Regards,

    Joe

    I managed to find a large, very dark form of sanguinea, but to my dismay, it only forms upper pitchers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] .

    Joe,

    I know what you mean about the pitcher form of N. sanguinea. There's something very elegant about it; rather like the var. elongata form of N. rafflesiana vs. the standard squat form.

    The clone of N. sangunea that was circulting in the US for a number of years was known as S-5 and was produced in large numbers I believe by Agristarts in Florida but there are colored forms now arriving in the US including some large plants. Please contact me off-list if you want to know more.
