    I think it is Exotica Plants who have a variegated Nepenthes shown in their collection, but it's been a while since I looked at their site so I don't remember what species it is exactly.

    There was a Canadian nursery that was selling variegated N. Alatas I think... But, I can't seem to find their site now...

    Exotica has quite a few variegated ones. I know they have N. tobaica x veitchii, maxima x ventricosa, and ventricosa red. They may also posses the variegated forms of N. alata and N. x coccinea, but I dont know. N.A.T.H., I think you have the single rarest cp right now [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img].

    I'll go with what Tony says! He is exactly right that the other lower leaf has a small sliver or white. The plant originated from Wistuba in Germany. I have 3 other mac's from the same clonage (I believe) that have not exhibited any variegation. So Tony is probably dead on with that TC thing. About the only other "fake" variegation I get is when my Neps get too much sun! Then I get "instant" leaf variegation but it's not the white kind! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] When the plant gets bigger, oh say...around 2005 I'll see if I get bigger variegated leaves. Rumor had it that Leo Song, another well known Carnivorous Plant enthusiast extroardinaire, had a variegated Nepenthes. I can't confirm nor deny that accusation. Thanks for all the feedback!

    I have seen a variegated alata up close at some of the LACPS meeting. The owner mentions that it needs a lot of sunlight. In fact, he grows it outdoors in CA sun without a greenhouse.
    There is also a registered neps cultivar called coccinea 'Scarlet Splash' from what I remember.

    Man, I got mine from the same place, and it wasn't variegated. I should package mine up, and have it replaced [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] .

    I remembered to take these pictures this evening:

    [img]http://home.**********.com/nepenthesgracilis/var1.JPG[/img]
    [img]http://home.**********.com/nepenthesgracilis/var2.JPG[/img]

    Both photos are of the same clone of the same cross, it is very complex but I do remember a thorelli and a cross Isama Kusawabe involved. These varegations were produced only once probably due to the shift form my old indoor cutting chamber to the greenhouse. The light intensity was severely changed causing this freak varegation to take place. i will have to see if anything else happens.
