She is a beast :)

here is the description I have put together so far for cultivar submission


Heliamphora 'Patasola'



The Patasola or "one foot" is one of many myths in South American folklore about female monsters from the jungle, appearing to male hunters or loggers in the middle of the wilderness when they think about women. The Patasola appears in the form of a beautiful and seductive woman, often in the likeness of a loved one, who lures a man away from his companions deep into the jungle. There, the Patasola reveals her true, hideous appearance as a one-legged creature with ferocious vampire-like lust for human flesh and blood, attacking and devouring the flesh or sucking the blood of her victims.

This plant was selected for cultivar consideration based on its vigor, rapid growth rate and unique physical characteristics.
It is from a hybrid I created several years ago. It is unique among its siblings in that it is a combination of the best qualities of each.
It will be co-submitted with Jennifer Lei who cultivated this particular seedling to maturity.

Mature pitchers are 25-30cm tall and 5-6cm wide. Under intense lighting the pitcher color will become vinaceous to violet to almost charcoal as the pitcher ages. Pitcher shape is infundibular in the lower part with a pronounced waist approximately half way up. The upper section is infundibular and slightly compressed in older pitchers from front to back. This compression gives the pitcher mouth a kidney or reiniform shape when viewed from above. The exterior surface of the pitcher is pubescent with the interior surface being puberulent to pubescent.

The rim of the pitcher mouth may undulate under some conditions and become revolute as it approaches the base of the nectar spoon. The revolute rim ends abruptly at the nectar spoon with little to no further constriction. The nectar spoon is helmet shaped with the bottom edge diagonally tapering to a point at the apex. It is a copious producer of nectar with droplets sometimes observed.

The inflorescence is pubescent with typical Heliamphora flowers. Productive bracteole nectaries have been observed under favorable conditions

Butch, are you describing a plant or Sophia Vergara?

Hey B,

here is mine of your cross that I got from Gabriel (peat).

It looks very nice IMO. Reminds me of the hood in Assassin's creed. HAHA!! Look at those nectar glands. Thanks again peat. ;) BTW..nectar spoons are brittle and very easy to break off. Notice the last pitcher's spoon that I mucked up.

Joe,

I've yet to submit LOL, been waiting to get the gear out and take some nice glamour shots.... I know, I'm slacking

Varun,

That looks amazing, I can see the parentage clearly... especially when seeing both your's and gabe's pictures.
Those are awesome pics, I love the nectaries.... (know where those come from LOL)

I wish you or gabe or both would name it and register it before someone else does.
I can think of no one I would like to see submit it more than you two.

It is special!

I want a division one day :)

very well grown old friend!
