    So I repot my Leucos to peat perlite and BOOSH! New pitchers are sprouting up like crazy, my 'big mouths' are averaging up to 8 traps (12 on one plant), my Darlintonia are also pushing up some nice and healthy pitchers as the 60F nights have been a treat for their roots, and my D.capensis are digging the 25 degree night/day difference to the point they're starting to need more room. Oh, I forgot to mention the S.flava has burped out it's 4 biggest pitchers yet... and flowered. The only plants I have showing signs of dormancy are my typical VFTs (they're starting their fall ground leaves). I had to take some of these shots as we're going to have rain and cold here for the next few weeks. I DON'T WANT THEM TO GO TO BED YET!

    (anyone like my son's pool in the background?)

    I think your son's pool needs more CPs. Nice pics though.

    I didn't know Lowes' plants had a distinct look except for -bleh- when first purchased.

I've noticed there's a difference in appearance between Greenhouse grown and outdoor grown though... maybe that's it? I'm hoping they'll be a bit fuller in the Spring.

    Actually the first 3 pics, with the Sarrs and cobra lilys. The VFT's at Lowes are just typicals. And I've never seen the Sarr. in the bottom pic there.
