    Hello. Too bad, I was thinking I was actually getting some skill out of this [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . The pitcher has more red on it now. Even tho I don't know exactly where the nursery got it, I bet its from Malaysiana because its where most of his plants come from (not saying anything bad about both the nurseries).

    Perhaps I do not have enough light, and it hasn't become as red as it could. Also, I need to look up what promiscuous and polygamus means [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] . Zongyi

    Aha! I've managed to dig out an old photo of this hybrid taken in our nursery about 18 months ago. It's not as colorful as most but you can see how deep the color is in peristome, I don't think lack of c0lor in your plant is entirely due to low light levels. Anyway, here's the photo:

    Could just be pitcher age? N. bongso for me opens fairly light colored and darkens as it ages. I haven't taken a closer look at my MT 'N. inermis' or your N. inermis x bongso hybrids Rob to see if they do the open light color and turn purple later maneuver. Maybe tomorrow I can go have a look.

    Indeed hehe. It's still Nov 14th here.. for another hour.

    What's interesting is I wouldn't have suspected the MT plants after just a cursory inspection when I unpacked my shipment. Many were just plain green with just a hint of color at most. So they didn't look that odd. According to Ch'ien they are all a single clone of the hybrid. Perhaps it just doesn't develop as much color as your clone Rob or requires brighter light or something to bring it out.

    Tony, from the Malesiana clones I got last year, one of them that I gave to a friend, with much better facilities than me, started to throw out much darker pitchers, with the most recent being a deep purple. All of mine are still green, although the most recent pitchers have striped peristomes like Zhongyi's. Given we're moving into summer here, I suspect that the latest batch will be a more purple colour. I'll keep you updated.

    True Tony, the green coloration would explain why it has taken quite some time for people to realise it's a hybrid. N. inermis usually has yellow pitchers though, even when young but most people naturally would not know that.

    BTW, Rob - do you have a picture of an upper pitcher of this hybrid? Hamish
