This beautiful plant produces a white hood with a fuschia splotch in its throat. You can also see the splotch from the back of the pitcher when sunlight passes through. A very cool effect! Look for its best and most colorful pitchers in September.

As for Aaron Carlson, all we know is he's a carnivorous plant enthusiast. We got this plant (among others) from another grower tagged it with his name. We weren't certain if that was the name of the plant or if she identified it as who she got it came from. Regardless, that's the name we recorded in our logs. (Aaron, if you're reading this, we hope you don't mind the accidental naming of this fine specimen!)

2nd Season Divisions

April: Spring growth will appear by the end of the month.
May: Fully developed pitchers will gradually appear.
