Nepenthes Ruby Alice
This is a complex hybrid grown by Sam Estes of Leilani Nepenthes Nursery. The main features that set this plant apart from other plants are its upper pitchers. The upper pitchers are funnel-shaped and creamy yellow with shades of red. Dark red rims seem to help make this plant really stand out. The intermediate pitchers (first photo) are also funnel-shape, but retains some of the dark colors of the lower pitchers. This plant can tolerate quite a bit of light. When the leaves develop a bronze hue, you know your plant is getting adequate sunlight. Overall, it's a stunning plant with unique qualities we rarely see in Nepenthes.
