This species is quite elegant. Pitchers are upright with a slight curve and a slight indentation in the middle. The hoods flare gracefully and will color up nicely in consistent bright lighting. Under artificial lights, pitchers will develop a tantalizing orange hue when they first open. Over time, they turn green. Pitcher production isn't as vigorous as other species or hybrids, but that also contributes to the overall elegance of this plant. On a mature plant, pitchers will reach up to 8 inches. FOR THE EXPERIENCED GROWER.

First photo is representative of the mother plant from which divisions were taken. Subsequent photos are representative of the batch of plants for sale.

For all divisions, we wait until there is at least one new open pitcher on a plant before offering it for sale. This can take up to 6 months. To prep plants for sale, we cut off all pitchers that have significantly discolored during the acclimation process, so a plant might have fewer pitchers than normal. Some order leaves left on a plant may still be mildly discolored. This is a normal process as they age. Plants will develop a full set of pitchers within another 6-12 months.
