My newest pitcher to open on my N. lowii x truncata wide, and another shot of my N. robcantleyi. I guess thats the new name?

Amazing pics! What lighting do you keep your N. robcantleyi in? I keep mine shaded but cant seem to get it to bring out its full color...

Thanks guys,
I grow my plants about 12 to 15 inches under T-5 grow lights.
I also grow all my sundews that way. I'm off to post some pix of them now.

Gorgeous Wide Peristome! Can't wait until mine get's that size.. :drool:

And why is it called robcantleyi, isn't it a 'Royal Truncata' anymore?

@mass: surely you've been following that discussion in the past few days.....how could you miss it?! (or are you being facetious? *chuckle*)

The Borneo Exotics cross of the two clones 'Queen of Hearts' and 'King of Spades' previously designated N. truncata are now moved into a new species, N. robcantleyi. But you knew that, right?

If ever I dicover a new species of Nepenthes, I may name it N. dirtysororitygirlii, in Travis' honor ;-) (A dubious honor indeed!)

Gorgeous! I can't wait until my lowii x truncata gets that big.

Mass, check out the pitcher plants forum. It's an interesting read...

Two beautiful and impressive specimens.

Your example of a N. robcantleyi is most definitely turning out to be something that could definitely also have beeen called truncata 'black', IMO :banana2:

Nice!
