    The ICPS Database says
    N: ~[Nepenthes cantleyi {Hort.Westphal}]nom.nud.

    So does that imply that Rob is naked, or just the name? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] Amazing! You're kidding us Trent, surely?! Looks like a PhotoShop job. It's N. bical x gracilis alright but the color?! I'm going on a hunt around the lowland nursery tomorrow for the only decent colorful plant of this hybrid I have. It's deep purple, almost brown, like the dark N. gracilis, nothiing like that beauty in your photo.

    If I sent that plant out in the 80's, may I have it back please [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Say, may I have a cutting?... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Sure Rob, a cutting will be put aside for you. We'll need some help with the permits for exporting to Sri Lanka, when the time comes (it's not yet established).

    No Photoshop tricks! That's the real color. Pitchers occasionally have green "feathering" starting at the base of the pitcher and flaring upward - that's a gracilis trait as you know. When the trap first opens the peristome is light green, but darkens with age and bright light.
    We wonder if it were remade using superior, selected parents, the colors could be duplicated or even improved.
    Glad you liked the photo.

    Wow, it doesn't look anything like my N. cantelyi!




    Wish mine produced pitchers like that!

    What kind of lighting is yours in? It looks like it must be pretty bright. Maybe i should give mine some sunbathing time?

    The lighting for our N. cantleyi when the photo was taken was not as bright as it should be because some huge bical leaves are giving it too much shade. Believe it or not, if given more light, the color will intensify. We are planning to find it a sunnier spot in our greenhouse, we'll see how dark it can really become. Even as the traps age the color never turns dull, there is always a brightness to it.
    D muscipula, yours sure looks happy! Okay, so it's not a dark form, but all well grown Nepenthes are beautiful. We haven't seen very many N. cantleyi to compare, so thanks for the pics.

    .. but it says on the pot "keep refrigerated" High fat yoghurt can produce pitcher coloration like that too. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    D muscipula, that plant has pitcher coloration pretty much typical of most N. cantleyi in the wild, at least those in Brunei. The N. cantelyi that result from crosses with dark N. gracilis have purple pitchers whilst the red flush on T & M's plant would (I guess) be because the N. bicalcarata was red. Red N. bicalcarata are extremely uncommon in Brunei where I used to be, so I'm guessing that T & M's plant came from somerwhere else, perhaps Kalimantan where red N. bicalcarata is quite common.
