    Sure are freaky Caps & Julian.

    On the Allardii issue... who else has this hybrid? I ask as the very few pictures I could fing on the web showed a striped peristome, where as mine is all green at this stage.

    Any thoughts?

    Aaron.

    Well, time and patience answered my question about the peristome colour as they are now becoming darker and more striped as the pitchers age. Will post a picture once they look like they have fully coloured up.

    Can I also take it the lack of response means that not many have this hybrid?

    Hi Aaron,

    Nepenthes Hybrids are not that commen over here in Germany. Most of the growers with limited growth space concentrate on pure species. Of course the broad selection the Mansells offer is not available as well. Another reason is the easiness to get pure species. This was my last catch at a local garden center few weeks ago:

    Joachim,

    Thanks for the explanation. Great find by the way. I think I've pretty much found all there is to be found at local nurseries now unless some of the grower introduce something new!

    Quensel,

    I'm no ID expert but my instinct say's it's not the same hybrid. Your has none of the speckling in the throat of the pitcher and the peristome appears quite different to me. So does that actual shape in a way.

    Some of the pros here could probably help you out. Try starting a new thread asking for ID assistance and see what ideas come up.

    Aaron.

    OK, as promised some time back here is one of the first mature and fully coloured up pitchers from the N. 'Allardii'. I suspect they will get even darker colouring in the summer months as day length is very short right now and I do have the plant positioned at the darker end of the glasshouse.

    This pitcher is small at just over 5" compared to one of the latest which is closer to 8". The later ones are also showing much more of the veitchii flaring of the peristom.



    This pair are the newer larger pitchers:
