    Are you getting the pseudo-lid on the sarracenioides that I see in some of the "in the wild" pictures, or do they just sort of stand straight up or lean into the pitcher a tiny bit? They're pretty either way, but I really hope they do eventually lid up.
    On a couple of the plants, particularly when the pitchers age, the tip tends to bends a bit towards the mouth. In the photo, the pitcher had just opened, but H. sarracenioides doesn't really have much in the way of a nectar spoon . . .

    David - on your H. ciliata on the top of the pitcher in the photo, why does it appear to have webbing and little red dots...?

    Some bits of a neighboring flower had dropped junk everywhere and I was too lazy to clean it off . . .

    Nice plants. My H. ciliata should be here within a few days; do you notice any particular quirks with this species?

    I really want H. sp. "Akopan" after seeing yours! Very nice.

    Thanks . . .

    No, no quirks and relatively fast growing. Just keep the media "open" . . .
