    Those pitchers survived shipping and have brightened and faded already. *Cue Final Jeopardy music*

    Still waiting for the new pitcher to get mature. They look like faded tricolor pitchers to me.

    OTOH, when I'm growing lowlanders: pretty good. Knowing what they are: needs work. (OK, a lot of work)

    Will photo the Cantley's Red when the wind dies down. Could be days, based on the last two.

    Dear Beagle:

    One suggestion: When Rob Cantley says that it is not Cantley's red, Very good chances are that it is not. If I were you, i would have a word or two with the salesman!!

    Gotcha.

    I'm talking about a different plant that I have not photographed yet. It's still windy and raining, by the way. It's ark building time.

    To be clear, I took a pic. of a "tricolor" in post #1 of this thread and will photograph a real, honest to goodness -- unless I'm wrong, which for once I won't be -- Cantley's Red.

    While I'm at it, my nep grow list now consists of:

    5 small Raffs, two bicalcarata (one S, one M) one Cantley's Red (M/L), 2 speckled amps (one S, one L), one tricolor (see above, I'd call it S/M), one S bellii, one vetchii "typical" (S), three big Miranda (which look a lot like N. x mixta in Savage Garden), two big ventrata, and finally about 20 rooted cuttings becoming ventrata.

    Everything is pretty new, being a newb.

    I bought three four tier covered grow racks from Northern Tool and Eq. Hope it's OK to post this. I thought it was a good deal. http://www.northerntool.com/webapp....OTOS=on

    (in Minn-e-soo-tah [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]). I probably will get a couple more. Cheap, tough, easy to assemble once you develop a procedure using angles for leverage. No tools required. Once it's pounded together, it feels solid. I bought the cheap greenhouse also if the need arises.

    Forgot the coccinea (L) and ventricosa (S).

    So, anyway, it could stop raining any day now...

    Needless to say, since Borneo posted, now I'm feeling the heat. I promised that just this once I'd get it right. Eh, here goes. This pitcher has a bruise, and has faded a bit, but at least it sits still in the wind and rain. [img]http://home.**********.com/beagle/crp.jpg[/img]

    That is the biggest pitcher. If that's not a Cantley's Red I'll hold my breath until I turn green and grow a third eye. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]

    Sorry, Beagle, didn't mean to put on any heat there, merely commenting.

    The latest photo you posted sure is a red N. ampullaria. No argument there. There are nearly 50 clones of red N. ampullaria in circulation now and it could be any of them. Or it may be of the same clone as the original "Cantley's red", Either way it looks good! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
