Posted on May 7, 2013
Nancy Milka is the winner of a beautiful "callisia" plant donated by Jane Young of the Wheaton Greenhouse. Nancy correctly identified the mystery plant, pictured at right, as "Nepenthes Alata, also known as "Monkey Cups Pitcher".
Nancy recalled first seeing the carnivorous plant at a nursery in Rhode Island and was intrigued by the strange shape and various colors. The callisia plant is also an "intriguing" plant that is sure to find a good home in your capable hands. Congratulations Nancy, and many thanks to Jane Young for presenting the mystery plant challenge.
