    I think down at post 5. :cheesy: Aww....we're just debating Ram! That is what one of the reasons this board is here to have fun and deabte over what is right and/or voice your opinion. I never thought of it as a contest about biggest colorful pitcher plant just as a dissucion. RICHARD UK. You give it full sun and it just gets red veining. Strange in a way. I have only a few that do that. Most of mine are pure blood red as in my photos above.

    The pitchers are green with veining fir there first year then they turn red/purple over winter into there second year. usually though, by the second year they are a bit tatty so I trim them off. My plants grow out doors and get attacked a lot by birds and my Alsatian!

    I am really falling in love with Purpurea, they are perfectly suited for my climate and are doing great. My yearlings are starting to show some real size with the care I've been giving them. I build a micro-bog that site in my windowsill, it's an adorable collection of you impending doom. It has 2 purpurea's a VFT, and I just planted some Drosera seed we'll see if it comes up. I'ld like to get my hands on some Drosera Scorpiodes for it, and another Drosera Filiformous Tracii, cause the one in there died in dormancy:sad:. It's nice though, my fairy moss is starting to go terran instead of aquatic form and spread across the soil, beautiful ground cover that turns red in direct sun.
