    More pics:

    N. x Cathy Jo, the persitome is really pinking up and starting to flare out a bit.



    Unidentified Nep perking up after a nice, humid night:



    And it looks like one of the bigger leaves on the VFT has caught itself a snack overnight:



    Gave the leaf a gentle pinch, and it felt squishy and kind of juicy on the inside. I guess it has started to digest it already. It was probably a small, unlucky cricket or something. I'm surprised the leaf was still quick enough to get something while dormant.

    That NOID nep definitely has truncata in it, as the main parent if not pure truncata (though a few more months of growth should help that ID)
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Could well be. It does have the purpley-red freckles on the inside of the pitcher and lid, round lid, and teardrop shaped maw that seem to be characteristic of a truncata.

    I vaguely remember Paul telling me that he thought the plant had N. maxima influences. I googled N. maxima x truncata and found this:



    Purplely-red freckles, round lid, teardrop shaped maw and it even has the ava spread out flat like mine mostly do. We should definitely be able to tell in a few months.

    I was thinking some N. sanguinea influence in there, too, but just not the color.

    Just an update:

    My VFT seems to be coming out of dormancy. It's making a whole slew of new traps that are bigger and it looks like they are trying to grow up into the air.



    My unidentified Nep has a new pitcher that has popped open overnight. It's got even more color and is just a tad smaller than the other one (sorry for the horrible focus).



    I bought a larger tub for my sphagnum culture to spread out and grow.



    My N. x Cathy Jo has unfurled a new leaf (top center).



    And when I went out to take the pictures, I noticed my capensis has caught an odd looking bug.



    It looks like a mosquito, but it does not have the snout for it, and it has the feathery antennae that you find on some moths, it also looks like it has a thicker exoskeleton. Possibly a midge (I never knew such a thing existed before I got into CP's. I probably always mistook them as mosquitos)?

    That is indeed a midge. Plants are looking good.

    Really looking great and making me very jealous of the Florida environment. I know I wouldn't be saying that in the summer, but I do love the heat and while the humidity makes ya sweaty and sticky all the time, I would deal with it if my plants weren't constrained to a terrarium tank!

    Someday I will have a greenhouse and can replicate those conditions if not better, but for now c'est la vie!

    P.S. Your living sphagnum is looking great. I wonder if I could be as successful with a culture of it under lights....
