    Below are pics of 2 of my cephs.
    Here is the type variety. The pitchers seem very light colored and almost white. Do you think this is normal? Lack of food?



    Here is Hummer's Giant and it seems to be well colored.


    They are both in a terrarium under 2 40watt fl. about 3 inches under the tubes. I've been thinking of spraying the pitchers with dilute fertilizer.
    Thoughts?

    I don't know about the light coloring but I spray my ceph with diluted orchid fertilizer about every three weeks. I just take the directions from the fertilizer and make 1/2 or 1/4 strength and spray the foliage. Give that a try.

    The top one is fairly green - it's just the one pitcher which is really white. The translucent lids are normal for a younger plant.
    The white pitcher is probably just dying off or was covered by another pitcher at one point. If I lift up a pitcher on mine, where it has been been hidden by another there is a large white patch.
