    Nice plant. I don't see any sunburn!
    I also do question the heterodoxa. It doesn't look like heterodoxa to me.

    Here is a pic of my heterodoxa

    and a pic of nutans for comparison

    Hmm, Martin said exact the same as you Tony. I do think the plant may be grown under too low light levels before I got it. It turned from totally green to red in four weeks. Here are some details of the pitchers:

    My H. nutans giant form looks like:

    The right pitcher was grown under lower light levels but the left one should be OK. (And I do hope gardenofeden likes it... ;-)

    Ahhhh, I hope that one day my tiny Heli seedling's will look like that.
    I've got quite a regime going! In the daytime I cover them with freezer bags to increase humidty, when it gets dark I take them off, open the window to lower the temp and mist them as much as poss until I go to bed. When the sun comes up I get out of bed and put the bags back over them, shut the window then get back into bed as fast as poss. They're exactly the same as when I first got them!!! At least they're still alive I suppose.
