    Apparently they only get better as it gets larger. They should have called it N. 'Chorizo'.

    Haha, N. 'Chorizo' I like those tubby pitchers. All your plants look wonderful. That is the fastest growing purp I know of, mine are so slow from seed; did it grow from seed outside? Love the color on that rubra pitcher!

    It's the fastest one I've ever seen, too. I might have a new cultivar on my hands. I didn't grow it from seed. It was saved from an herbicided bog before everything died. Mature pitchers were the ones that were intended to be collected, but I got all of the seedlings. That one is the most vigorous, hands down.
    That possible new subspecies of rubra develops even better colors as the temperatures drop, just wait.

    It's an awesome little hybrid! Fat, dark, and nectary. That Ceph pitcher took forever to open.

    And now the moment you didn't know you've been waiting for. D. cistiflora 'Red' shows signs of life!!!! I got this to germinate without any special treatment at all, aside from letting it bake in a windowsill for a month while in the packet.
