    Just wanted to share a pic of my N. mirabilis from this weekend. I think the colour on these pitchers is just amazing.



    The 2x red pitchers were existing and the ligher one is since I got the plant. As you can see there is now a new pitcher forming on the left and a couple of new leaves.

    Aaron.

    Thanks Joe.

    What do you think of the pitchers. Do they look about as mature as they get? I ask as I've seen a few varieties that have larger peristomes.

    Aaron.

    I just reread your post an realised you asked a question and did no make a statement. I read it "it is" not "is it".

    Got to get my eyes checked ;-)

    Nice plant Aaron. I was wondering how tolerant is this plant to a "Melbourne winter"?

    It is very interesting to discover that sometimes plants labelled as "lowlanders" are not really lowlanders but intermediates such as eustachya, thorelli, and macrovulgaris.
    I wonder how well N. truncata and rafflesiana would grow in highland conditions?

    I'll ask Geoff next time i speak to him

    Gus
