People who view multiple CP forums have likely seen some of these pics, but I understand there are also people here on CPUK that aren't on the others so ...

This guy has grown happily for the past year or two in my small office terrarium. While similar to the others, the newest pitcher seems to have some more color and a slightly wider peristome - or it's my imagination. Either way, I'm enjoying it ... :sun_bespectacled:

Neat little pitcher. Reminds me a bit of an Egyptian amphora. Its definitely one of the prettier Neps. Nice pics!

Where did you get it?

Herr Wistuba.

The plant loves to bury the tendrils into the moss (even more than my N. argentii) and inflate buried pitchers (or ones where only the lids are exposed). The colors are much better when I pull them up & have them sit on top of the moss. :sun_bespectacled:

This month's pitcher seems to be significantly taller than the last bunch.

... cuttings available soon?

Not yet. Although the leaves are getting longer/wider and the pitchers larger, the internodal distance on the stem remains unchanged @ ~1.5cm.

Thanks for your response :thumbsup:
Just for curiosity, how tall is the whole plant? and how old is it?
