    I've been thinking for some time on this and I am almost nearly dead certain of this.

    There is no Blue-toned or colored Nepenthes.

    No sky.
    No turquoise.
    No navy.
    No royal.
    No blue.

    Am I wrong for coming to this conclusion? Do any of you know of or own a species of Nepenthes that produces a blue tone in the pitchers or in the leaves? I cannot think of a single one. Yet, I can think of one for every other color. Strange, is it now?

    I've never thought about that before, but come to think of it, I don't think I've ever heard of a blue nep either. A blue nep would be awesome though!

    maybe its because blue is less attractive to insects compared to the other colors?

    I know a guy that went to New Caledonia to collect geckos. He said he saw Nepenthes pitchers there with blue on them. There is only one known species there, and no blue clones I am aware of. Maybe he has a picture?

    Blue is a tough color to produce. There are many plants which collectors are deperately trying to produce a hybrid with blue. Roses and many cactus cannot produce blue flowers but abundance of every other color in every shade imaginable.
