    Another form, grown under similar conditions. It does not colour up as readily but gives larger pitchers.

    Clone B, March'09

    Thanks everyone. I have not been looking at them much lately and was truely amazed at the rate of growth since March when I compared the photos. Apparently, they are really happy with the recent weather - rain storm in the morning followed with scorching sun in the late afternoon.

    Raimeiken, the substrate is mostly a mixture of peat and sand, with some pine bark to increase aeration. They are top watered every 1-2 days.
