    Hello Ytk,

    I'm looking for some years now, different varieties of Ampullaria here from france, but it's quite rare ! or very expensive.
    Borneo Exotics, are selling again a clone called " Brunei Red ", different than the Cantley's red form. But it's a clone, so you can catch a very nice colours !
    But you'll have to find a distributor i think from B.E. Cos they don't sell for particular ( i think )
    I found, by Mr Christian Klien in Germany, a really nice form some weeks ago...it's a " Brunei Red " with pitchers similar of the Red form but with a yellow, and little bit green peristome...i didn't know this form before !
    So, sometimes, you find but you have to look with the nursery if there's one day a chance to catch a Hot lips or Red moon for example !

    Good luck anyway !

    It varies from pale green to a yellowish to white. Its a slow weak grower and personally don't think its a worthwhile clone to be propagated. Of course this could change if ten years from now it all of a sudden started to grow and became a weed. But its expensive and if you plan on buying it, but the William's Red instead!

    That one I highly recommend~!

    I would like to comment on the white pitchered clone.

    Looks like a typical red variant of N. ampullaria. Not a giant red or any of the cultivars. Just a unique individual.
