    Those are turning out interesting.
    Sorry for the foggy pictures, humid greenhouses do that, but here are some pics of the more impressive plants from the seedlings I have:
    S. purpurea venosa burkii "Chipola" x typical: this one survivor has gotten large, fast, and very colorful


    S. 'Royal Ruby' x 'Adrian Slack: 2 seedligns shown, one is getting very thick, wide mouth and open up very pale pinkish, but age out to form deep red veins, and the other seems to have the ruby pitcher with the Slack lid, and bright areoles




    S. x catesbaei "Monster" x purpurea 'Red Ruffles': the biggest of the seedlings has a very wide, ruffled lid, and the color is bright yellow with deep red, contrasting veins, which coalesce on the upper pitcher under the lip to form a nearly solid red zone

    I also have 'Leah Wilkerson' x 'Royal Ruby', but so far they haven't really colored up yet. The few that have are showing either LW throat colors, or very reddened bodies.

    Got some updates for a few plants
    S. purpurea venosa burkii "Chipola" x typical is getting very fat, very fast

    And I've got at least a few winners in the S. 'Royal Ruby' x 'Adrian Slack' batch. First, this stately plant, which often takes on a red blushing like alata rubrioperculata

    And this one has snowflake pale lids which blush shades of crimson as they age

    And last but not least, this one hit the jackpot: the 'Royal Ruby' flushed pitcher tubes with the white-with-red-veins 'Adrian Slack' lid

    Since they change so much as they age, more shots:
    First, progress pics on the S. purp burkii "Chipola" x typical: younger pitcher

    And older pitcher:

    Finally decided to share the 'Leah Wilkerson' x 'Royal Ruby'


    And more of the 'Royal Ruby' x 'Adrian Slack': the tallest, most colorful one first

    This one I'm thinking about calling "Ruby Lips" as that and the veins are the only things that turn deep red

    And one that has just begun showing its potential, bright pinks with the white lid

    Also, a comparison shot: the lid of the one above, and a sibling the same size. They both started out with pale lids only barely blushed crimson, now look at the difference

    An update on my batch of S. 'Hurricane Creek White' x 'Adrian Slack' plants from Fred.

    Here they are during dormancy for cleaning up and repotting in early 2012:



    Here they are earlier today for cleaning up and repotting. This is 2 years later after the photo was taken above... They were all in one group pot. So, I decided to give them so more space to let them really take off this year.




    The larger ones:


    All potted up with lots of room to grow:



    Here are some pictures of them from the 2013 growing season:

    Seems the 'AS' has the tendency to pass on the veining of the lid no matter the hybrid. The washed out colors on your cross certainly show this, and nice plants too!
    Still can't get enough of the 'Royal Ruby' x 'Adrian Slack' seedlings:
    Really tall, thin plant with lots of pale colors

    The clone with the red tube and dark lid veins

    "Ruby Lips"

    "Pinkie"
