    >Mike: Yes its a picky specie. Hispida need less light and cooler nights.

    Sure. But providing cool nights and low light hasn't usually resulted in adult pitchers for me. I grew one juvenile for 4 or 5 years, it still had juvenile pitchers when it died during moving. I got an unrooted division with small adult pitchers, and it reverted to juvenile leaves. This one here is the only juvenile that ever started making adult leaves for me: https://www.flickr.com/photos/51764444@N03/14107295418
    So I'm impressed that you were able to get a juvenile hispida to make adult pitchers that quickly, low light and cool temps haven't been sufficient for me usually.

    Elrancho, i already follow you on flickr :-)
    (Nice pictures by the way!)

    In fact, i grow this lil hispida at the end of my t5 tubes, so the light is not so strong.

    Maybe the juvenile setback is the result of a lack of light and/or too much heat?

    From my experience, the more important is the roots. If you can keep the roots cool(cold), the next pitcher will always be taller.

    How big can they get?
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly
