    Hey, I though this was cool. I took these three pitcher pictures tonight. They're all on the same plant, lower, intermediate, and upper. This N. x Splendiana finally made a basal shoot, and I got my first lower pitcher. Unfortunately, the next one is the intermediate, so it will be all uppers again from here. I'm glad I saw one lower, though!

    Very nice Caps. Great sequence of photos.

    The only parentage info I could find said: "mirabilis x (rafflesiana x ampullaria)"

    Is that correct? If so do you keep it in L/L conditions?

    Aaron.

    Hey Aaron. No, the parentage is N. maxima x kampotiana. It thrives in my household conditions, which are intermediate/highland. It's a vigorous hybrid, and a good way to squeak the seldom-grown and difficult N. kampotiana into your collection.

    That's great the plant looks very happy! I like the "fat lip" look of the upper pitcher's persitome! It also looks like a real sticky plant with those large nectar droplets under the upper pitchers lid and on the tendrils. Are your hands sticky after handling the pitchers?

    Capslock, do you know if it's male or female? There is one very vigorous female clone in cultivation which will eventually get the cultivar name 'Splendid Diana'.
    We grow ours in lowland conditions in the summer, and highland conditions in winter-a testament to N. xSplendiana's hybrid vigor.

    Normally one would pick a highly colored pitcher over a greenish one, but that upper is really cool with the colored peristome against the green pitcher.
    Very nice plant!
