    Good question... it's made 2-3 pitchers a month at each growth point. Non carnivorous leaves grow fairly quickly, in only a week or slightly more.

    It probably isn't dry below the surface...

    I've done a lot of experimenting with this one so Ive been keeping a pretty good photo history of it...

    FWIW here is 10 months growth, oh and BTW this is the one that had the Botrytis attack last winter





    It's still relatively young but all things considered, Im pleased with it's progress

    growth is somewhat exponential, so the surface should be covered by this time next year (I hope LOL)

I like to keep even more frequent updates. lol! like every month. then...I can flick through the pics and recall how much it has grown and all. I still remember the day I started with my saggy looking VFT .. lol! and now I compare to the current look...man! they have come far. I hope the ceph tags along as well.

    Yeah, but it would be completely ironic for it to die all of a sudden .

    I think I'm growing it okay, not that well though. He was a fighter since I got him, quick to un-shockify (that's not a word) and quick to acclimate.

    guys, an update on my ceph:



    BTW...do you guys know what the left "whitish gray streaks" are on the left unopened adult pitcher??



    The growth tip is still barely anywhere moving....I haven't seen a new pitcher bud since a month now. It seems like it stalled when I moved in on may 23rd. Already started buds did balloon out to form these adult pitchers..but I haven't seen any new ones.

    and a last one of my nice cute little baby



    cheers,

    varun
