    Yeah, it is. It's in my highland terrarium. The tendril making a cameo in those photos is from N. diatas 'meadow form', the oval leaf is N. burbidgea. The other leaves are from N. aristolochioides.

    Rattler, I got mine from California Carnivores, where it's sold as "spotted form". It's obviously the purlple form, though.

    What do you mean by something wrong?

    The long, undulating, strap shape of them is characteristic. It's one of the cool things about them.

    I mean the rust spotted leafs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    What, on the albomarginata?

    There are a few spots on the really old leaves that are brown, and a bit of a bronze well-lit look to them, but i don't really see what you mean.

    The albomarginata is lovely. I have a red form coming soon, but I think the black/purple is stunning now.

    I understand the red form is intermediate, whereas the black/purple form is fully lowland. What temps are you growing it in?

    LOL Jmenprkr I think you posted in the wrong thread, but i appreciate your ... umm... sympathies?

    Hi Rob-Rah. I've had it in temps from as near as i can figure around 65 minimum (rarely) to up in the nineties. I'll be able to give more complete info in a month or two, as i recently took it out of the terrarium where it no longer had room to spread its leaves, and put it on the windowsill with evening sun and much lower humidity. It's been there a few weeks now, and while it's lost all the old pitchers (expected), the last three are still fine, and it bronzed up a bit and seems to be growing still, albeit a little more slowly. The temperatures have been down into the upper fifties once or twice since that time, but it seems to have weathered it ok so far.

    Time will tell.
