    D. binata can handle a little shade at the crown - it'll just get a little dangly while it searches for light. Most varieties of binata can stretch tall enough to escape that shade. You could maybe give the pot a quarter turn every day or two to keep things evenly lit.
    Interesting choice of pots - I hope you can find a good watering method and succeed with it. I'm interested to see how it'll look grown out.

    Just as a quick update, now that the growths have attained a little more size, you can indeed see the shape of the 'lid' forming, so they are in fact developing pitchers. I did get a larger saucer for the pot, and it seems a bit moister. I might run to the store and pick up some thick string, and run it through the pot, out the bottom, and into the saucer, to try and use capillary action to pull more water towards the top of the pot.

    Firming in the peat moss would be beneficial. If there are any air pockets it disrupts the capillary action. Happy growing!
