    So, Tony was nice enough to send me this plant as a wedding gift. It was baisicaly my fisrt nep. I managed to almost kill it, as it only had one partly green leaf. I called Tony and it turned out I was keeping it way too wet. So, I started keeping it dryer and sure enough... I got 3 growth points out of the plant. This is what it looks like now. Is it normal for the whole plant to be turning red like this? Thanks.
    And a special thanks to Tony for this plant!!
    here is the whole plant:

    here is a close up of one of the MANY pitchers:

    Andrew, I think it's safe to say you've rescued it! That is a very healthy looking plant, and yes, the redness is normal. It just means it's getting good light (and a little tan!) Nice work! Whatever you're doing with it, keep doing it!

    Wow looking really great now! The color is fine. Do you feed it at all? N. maxima responds very well to an occasional snack. It will grow by leaps and bounds now that you have some nice pitchers to toss in a few bugs here and there! Looks like it will also be large enough to start forming more mature looking pitchers soon, although the large flaired peristome won't begin to show itself until the plants reach a pretty good size (18cm+ diameter).

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

    How does the Borone form vary from the Tlatwiran form in the flaring peristome?
    Anyone have a pic of a older Borone pitcher to show?

    Malesiana has a picture of the Borone lowland form. Biggest difference is the green/red striped peristome.
