If you're familiar with Reptilian Rose, this plant is its sister from the same seed batch, though it has more features that take after its oreophila parent. Its pitchers are brightly colored with red veins against a yellow backdrop. Its hood has gentle undulations. Pitchers are typically 16-20 inches.
This plant produces its best pitchers in late spring. In late summer, it produces a second flush of pitchers that stouter and more colorful.
