So sometime last year I made a post asking for species name suggestions for this plant. The post wasn't all that popular, but I did get two good suggestions, and I went ahead and added two of my own fitting names.
I wanted this to be a decision the community could make together, so I made a pole with the few options so that you guys can vote for your favorite name.
Of course I know the name won't be official, but since whoever is in charge of describing and naming species is taking their sweet time, I thought we could go ahead and give this plant some recognition anyway. Also because I'm just tired of going through my plant collection by name and stopping at this guy and asking, "who's this again?"
So anyway, obviously the most voted name wins and will be attributed to this species. All names are in Latin. Pole will last for ONE week.
MACULOSA, meaning spotted or speckled (since the pitchers have such lovely spotting)
GRANDIS, meaning large or grown (since the species gets quite large)
CUPRUM, meaning copper (since the upper portions of the pitchers have light copper coloration)
STRENUUS, meaning vigorous (since I've observed that the pitchers tend grow quickly and mature faster than any of my other plants)
If you have any other suggestions, make sure to let me know quickly so that I can update the pole (if possible). Of course any questions are welcomed too.
Posted a couple photos as well in case you want to infer names based on appearance, or if you're simply curious.
