    Wow! That's a really handsome pitcher. Is it growing in a chamber or in a greenhouse?

    Hi Schloaty
    Its in a 8 x 10 greenhouse,i had to shade it as the leaves seem sensitive to sunburn and colour up easily.

    Bye for now Julian

    Very nice!

    My own N. Miranda (Mixta x maxima) is making huge pitchers now, 30 + cm each time one opens.


    Thankfully the plant itself quit growing at about 4 feet in diameter (not including tendrils which are another 30-45 cm each!) and has begun to climb. I'll be seeing an upper soon, I hope they will look nice and colorful as some maxima uppers are dull and plain old green.

    Keep up the good work!

    Very nice Julian.

    I had to look twice as you have the inside of your glasshouse lined with bubble wrap exactly like mine!
