    Here are some of my younger plants, and their pitchers.

    First up, N. spectablilis x ventricosa:


    Next up, N. maxima 'superba':


    Finally, a new favorite, N. truncata x ventricosa:

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    If you can just post the info, that would be cool too. I know a lot of Bruce Bednar crosses were made with maxima 'superba' and I would like to know the background.
    It's gorgeous btw.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I wish I knew more about this rooted cutting. I picked it up at a local plant supplies store while I was buying somr lfs. Apparently, some local grower sold a few of his plants to them, and I happened to show up the next day. I also got a d. spatulata x capensis, which you don't see every day. Anyway, the label just says "N. maxima superba" followed by the female symbol. That's it. It had a similar pitcher to this one on it when I bought it, and I thought it looked great, so I grabbed it.

    Hmm Capslock can you tell me the local plant supplier? I live near to San Fran so I would like to check it out! Assuming it isn't CA Carnivores.

    Sure, IceDragon. I got them at Plant It Earth on Market St. in San Francisco. I usually get pots and lfs and other supplies there.
