    I find dark Nepenthes hamata to not be as pleasing to the eye. Maybe I just don't like it when live pitchers look dead.

    That plant looks attractive and ugly at the same time. It's like--how do I put this--a piece of modern art.

    This Nepenthes macrophylla from AW is probably a xtrusmadiensis with mostly macrophylla influence - just enough lowii to badly distort adult pitchers:

    I think there was either a drop in humidity at a crucial moment or a temperature anomaly, or maybe just a goof up. It never happened again.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Great pics guys ! I've always considered most lowii hybrids amongst the most heinous looking Nepenthes.

    Regarding that "N. macrophylla" from AW. The pitchers didn't show deformities until they were 6 inches plus and the plant was nearly 2 feet across.
    Then, the ugly pitchers started appearing. Some have been even more distorted than the one in the photo.
    Cheers,
