    Hey All, I just wanted to let you know my Nepenthes Albomarginata came in, And it's a beauty. I will try to post pictures this weekend.

    Any How, Tony and I talked, and we believe this one to be A very dark purple strain, as far as we can tell (based on Tony's research) the truly black form of the plant has not yet made it's way to the states.

    But heck if I care! The plant is gorgeous, easily 8 inches from leaf tip to tip, with 2 1/2 inch to 3 inch pitchers on it. Here is the kicker, this is not a cheap plant, it cost me 50 bucks after shipping. Tony could have easiliy removed the basal shoot on this plant and after a few months of conditioning, sold it for twice the profit. But he's a stand up guy.

    Thanks Tony, I now have a new nepenthes to obsess over!

    I'm not even going to ask about the nice white ring around the top of the pitcher...

    Wow got there a day ahead of time! Glad your happy with it. I meant to explain also what the black albomarginata is in the email..so I will just do it here. If you were to take a cross section of the pitcher you would find the dark purple color on the outside portion of the cells. Then a layer of green chlorophyll below that. When you look at it from our prospective you see a blackish color because the purple and green blend.
