I might have the largest collection of N. amps outside their native habitat! Well except for Japan. Well, maybe a few other places too.
But I have been collecting them since 2000! I'll try not to post and list things that are just slightly different. I'll show a few of the distinct N. amp. Brunei reds, a few selected tricolor/Harlequins, and the green, speckled, and a few novelty colors. There are some plant features that also make them distinct, so if a speckled pitcher might look too close to something else. Note to see if it has a winged tendril, or maybe the shape is different or maybe the pitcher fits almost in one hand. These will be my distinctions for posting/listing them.
A dark form. Not Brunei red or Harlequin. This plant grows BIG!!!
Speckled with red peristome.
Fuzzy solid red. Just the pitchers are fuzzy like a kiwi!

This is a solid red with green (but eventually a striped peristome with candycane stripes of red on lime green)
Its not old or a camera trick. This is a brown pitcher with speckles and a red peristome.
This is one of the so-called orange or sunset colored types. The outer body is more green as I had this in the shade. More light and it does resemble an orange color. This has a nice orange-red peristome.
This is MT's clone called Sarawak Sunset. The odd thing is that when I reordered this the second time, they sent another red so not sure which is which! This form has a green wing and reddish body and a yellow peristome.
Hi, very nice pic contributions from everyone. Sorry I dont really have anything nice enough to post, can only POST a Question Since light factor isnt really so strong in determining pitcher size, then what would contribute to: (1) larger pitchers on the main vine (2) bigger, more clumping pitchers in the basals? I know humidity must be important, but there must be something else. I am wondering if a compact, denser medium (something slightly thicker than the average neps would like) would help? value all inputs, thanks
I'd love to show you a picture of my clone, but it hasn't pitchered for years. I tried a new soil mix last year, but no luck there either. My raffs, bical, and even northiana are reasonably happy, but this amp just doesn't like me.

yeah it's hard to find this beautiful color. I only got one plant in the market. Now it's creating basal carpet pitcher now... ;D

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
