    I bought this plant about a month ago. When I purchased it, there were no new urns forming on the leaves. The pitchers had not been aborted, but seemed to be in suspended animation. After about 2 weeks, the ends of the tendrils began to swell up. The temperature is as hight as 90F during the day and it has been down to 65F at night. It is in full to partial sun. The plant is all green except the tendrils have a hint of red in them. The largest urn is about 4" tall.



    I will post more photos as the urns open.

    The white tag is from the local nursery that I purchased it form simply saying its a new product and some general care instructions that are ok. The tag at the top is one of those Clean Air Plant tags. Not sure if that will help any. It explains why plants clean the air and that NASA has done some studies to prove plants clean the air in our homes.

    Well, time for a quick update.

    The plant is not all green. I have seen red coloration forming in the newest pitchers.

    Its now been about 1 year since I got the plant. So, here is a current photo taken 2 days ago.
