This hybrid cross of two hearty species, N. fusca and N. maxima, results in a fast-growing plant boasting beautiful speckled pitchers and impressive peristomes. Younger pitchers are characterized by cream striped designs, which later give way to a vivid red hue. Thanks to N. fusca's influence, the pitchers remain slender and the peristome features a steep column. While it may not be able to compare to the gargantuan size of N. miranda, it can sustain an impressive number of pitchers simultaneously.
