This plant has an enormous amount of color. One might argue this is due to some back-crossing with another species, such as S. rosea. But if so, the influence must be small, for the shape of this pitcher is almost identical to the image on the previous page. Flick back and forth, and see for yourself.

Here is another white and red plant. Spectacular!

Look at how broad these lid veins are, while its lip is so small.

Meanwhile, this plant excels at its large lid, and veined lip!
