Just wondering if anyone had managed to get N. alba to produce white pitchers in cultivation? I know the plants naturally experience very strong light levels, so I'd be interested to see how indoor growers get on with this species.
It is only the upper pitchers of N. alba which have the white colouration. The lowers being a dark, mottled red. My plants have finally come into their own this year, not having done very well in previous years. My smallish plants now have 5" lower pitchers, and I am hoping for the first uppers this year.
It will certainly be interesting to see what they are going to look like.
