Nepenthes Briggsiana

The newest pitcher on my N. Briggsiana opened over the weekend, and it is beautifully striped, more so than previous pitchers.

This clone of N. Briggsiana came from Sam Estes, about 15 months ago. I was told that this is an effortless hybrid to grow, which turned out to be quite accurate, of course. No doubt the ventricosa genes helped, in that regard 😉 If you can find yourself a specimen of any of the Briggsianas, they are highly recommended.

Last minute addition: N. tenuis has a second pitcher open and a third on the way! It is also branching where the recent flower stalk was, and a shoot is forming at the base. What a great little species this is. Easy, easy plant to grow in typical highland conditions, in my experience.
