well mine is staying in mature mode, but hairless as a naked mole rat after a shave :P
no fuzz no where, neither inside nor outside.... oh well, just keep the faith I guess
what good is a fuzzy sock that isn't fuzzy?
Av: your pilosa came from andreas ?
I have 2 new pitchers growing right now, both with white hair. Its more hairy that i was thinking. The inside of the old pitchers have long hair everywhere, like a pulchella. And i have the plants for only 3 weeks now.
Maybe you dont have the right plant specie?
I have water running on the roots 2 times a day, everyday, because the pilosa grow like that on auyan, according to brad wilson.
Maybe you can try that?
Im pretty sure your plant will produce white fuzz shortly, if not, i will send you a lil division of my plant next spring with pleasure.
I've had one for six months. It arrived with immature pitchers and has only produced a few more -- no uppers.
I just hope it will perk up with time...

Growth rate is getting better all the time, color is good, form is good, plant seems very healthy.... just completely glabrous at the moment. If I don't see hair over the next few months, I will consider other options.
I'm reasonably sure they just need a little time to show their true form, ummm I hope LOL :-)
Were yours ever glabrous?
Thank you for your kind offer Maiden...
I have found mine "needs" regular feeding or growth basically stops....

Thanks, Av. I'll get to work on that.

That's encouraging, at least.
one of my two clones of minor var. pilosa from Auyan Tepui is also hairless outside or just less hairy, varying from pitcher to pitcher...
My second clone is always very hairy - seems to depend on the clone you have and also on the age of it! ;-)
Thanks for the info Marc, good to know there are more than the one clone line.... but sort of bad to know one is less hairy.

It helps a lot :-)
The first pitcher from your cutting could pass as the identical twin to mine in shape and color.
That does ease my concern....
