    Very nice . . .

    Out of curiosity, how long did it take for your H. sarracenioides to produce its first adult leaf and about how old is the plant?

    I'm guessing it took about 3 months for the pitcher to develop. The plant arrived in May of 2008.

    It's growing in a terrarium under a 55 watt "fluorex" lamp set for 14 hour days. The nights have been dropping below 60F.
