    Sorry my experience with lowland Nepenthes hybrids is on the limited side. Most pictures you see of N. x coccinea are colorful lower pitchers. Perhaps someone with more experience here can help with regards to upper pitchers. With the number of years these plants have been around I am sure there must be a number of people that have grown the plant big enough to produce upper pitchers.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

Actually...if I'm not mistaken those pitchers look like n. maxima's pitchers (my most wanted pitcher!!&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]. Here's a pic of my n. x coccinea!

    know if some can I.D. a plant by its flowers. you deserve to brag how good you are.

    now the pic Andenes posted of N.coccinea is the only form i have seen of it.

    with looking at the pitchers a little bit better i still think N.veitchii lowland

    I've actually never seen one of the artificially produced N. x coccinea in the flesh, but have seen plenty in the wild including huge plants with upper pitchers. I'm sure that your plant Andennes is the real thing. I'm equally sure that the upper pitchers shown on the links provided by Weser are N. rafflesiana x something, but who knows what that "something" might be.

    Hey,
    I notice that many of you seem to have your X Coccinea in a hanging basket. Is that recomended? Mine is sitting my a terrarium, and some of the pitchers are resting on the ground. Is that bad? Do they prefer to hang?
