    Took some pictures of the same plants again just to show a bit of their progress.


    N. ventricosa, new pitcher:




    The N. ventricosa (AristxThorelii) seedling with red leaves is putting out its first pitcher and it has bright red coloration already! I cant wait to see this thing once it opens.



    Here is its brother/sister plant's new pitcher to compare with color:



    Cephalotus is finally making new growth! A new pitcher and a new leaf!



    And lastly a funny image I ended up taking by accident. I was trying to get a picture of my N. burkei developing a pitcher, but a piece of scotch tape had gotten stuck to my lens without me realizing. When I went back through the pictures, the clear tape made it look like there was a spooky fog!

    I have had a couple really cool things pop up in Paul's crosses. Rest assured that yours will be awesome, too. In fact, I think enough people have this cross that it might be nice to share photos under a common thread.

    He keeps his greenhouse 2-3x as humid as mine, and it was initially tough to acclimate the plants. Stuck em in a terrarium and gradually uncovered over ~2 weeks. It was actually neat, watching the leaves become more and more adapted to lower humidity.

    Your plant looks great! I had a rough couple of weeks when I first got the plants. The seedling with the red leaves initially was just as green as the others. Then for whatever reason during acclimation it started gaining that pigment and now all of its new growth has been a really pretty red. Really interesting looking!

    Drosera dichrosepala gemmae have all sprouted and a few have carnivorous leaves


    Unknown Sarracenia seedling: (This wasnt edited in anyway, the pitchers are bright red and the picture just ended up being dark..)


    N. ventricosa growing an upside down pitcher:

    The oldest pitcher on my N. ventricosa (left)) vs the newest one (right)
    That size gap is great!
    (Yes, its not technically on the plant anymore, as I just trimmed it off :3)

    Small update, I have a new arrival

    I got this small N. ventricosa "black peristome" about a week ago, it is a pretty color-less plant but thats okay with me, like a fine wine itll become better with age.




    The red seed grown N. ventricosa (arist x thorelii) has finally opened its pitcher! Its very bright red and fades to orange near the base wth a yellow peristome



    Here is its starch green sibling plant to compare color with:


    The red plant is also making a new pitcher with the same distinct "Redhead" (I think I might start calling this plant Redhead now )

    Im absolutely loving the coloration. Developing pitchers are just as interesting as open ones imo
