Nepenthes platychila

High greens and hand painted reds adorn the slender contours of Nepenthes platychila's lower pitcher. Like a dark dancer, tall and graceful, her alatus greets us in a gesture of sinister welcome.  Meanwhile the contour of her body arches gracefully, holding itself in a ballet position.

The peristome is a festival in lime with understated red streaks that give character but don't overwhelm.

Every Nepenthes tells the story of life, death and nature through it's beauty.  None with such elegance as Nepentehs platychila!
