    I've seen it both "Petra" and "Petra Giant", and frankly, it should be "Petra Dwarf." It is easily the smallest pitcher per plant size in my collection.

    It is N. [ventricosa x (bosgso x talegensis)].

    Nice Ise de France! I have a cutting from Snowy Falcon, and it has recently openned it's first pitcher. That darn thing grows fast! My pitcher doesn't have that nice reddish coloring....How long did it take to redden up like that?

    Edit: Oops! I had the wrong benefactor in my post!

    Thanks! It reddened up even before it opened. I have another Ile de France that isn't red like that, but they're both in the same conditions. Here's that one:


    Don't know why they're so different. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    My cutting took forever to get rooted, but once it did, it really exploded in growth. I'm pretty excited about this plant!

    Caps, that second pic is what mine looks like. Hopefully my wife will e-mail me the pics this afternoon so I can post them.

    Really lovely pitchers...I like the pink color of the Petra.

    Nice, Capslock.
