This plant gets its name, albomarginata, from the white band that appears just beneath the lip of each pitcher. The plant produces a long vine with slender leaves from which elongated slender pitchers appear. While pitchers are commonly green, this rare variant features very dark pitchers that some growers refer to as black.
Once it acclimates to its environment, this plant has proven to grow well as a regular houseplant in a very sunny windowsill. The first two photos above feature one of our plants producing pitchers in winter!
