Miranda is so underrated if you catch it at the right time. Which you did.. I love it.

Hmmmm, interesting. I haven't found mine to be slow at all - it's been cranking out pitchers non-stop since I got it. It can't really compete with the others but I still enjoy the look.

Newly opened upper pitcher of N. maxima dark x talangensis. For a plant that has lowers basically like Lady Pauline, it's a striking difference.

Someone asked me if this pitcher would darken up and I said I didn't think it would. I guess brighter lighting is paying off, because now it looks like this:

In my experience it was molasses as well... I think it likes it a touch warmer than hl might be the reason ??? Do you keep it HL, Pineapple?

I've also noticed that vogelii grows much quicker in warmer conditions. Still grows as a highlander, but you'll see a lot of pauses in "ultra" highland conditions.

seeing a lot of pauses with mine. Like,.. since the day I got it.
So seeing someone with a nice pitcher like that makes me envious.
You're definitely in my top 3 votes Ron.

:water: Hello here are my pitcher of the year: http://s1293.beta.photobucket.com/user/ThaiGer1/library/farmers pictures (password: ThaiGer)
The main production are fruits but among other things also flower. Because of our altitude of 1300 meters and the optimal weather we can grow many kinds of plants all time in the year.
Our pitcher climbing over other plants, and may grow as epiphytes, growing on other plants in the farm trees canopy, or as low shrubs.They growing up allone. My good friend Surasak have a flower nursery and seeds. Two new kinds I like too much: N.thorelii-tiger and N.thorelii-cambodia.
If you also look at my homepage,then you know with who you talk (write).
Best luck and regards, ThaiGer.
