    just to let everyone know thats a 8" pot its in. the vendor told me that as it pitchers more the pitchers will become more red/pink and will retain it all. the first pic of the truncata x veitchii i think almost through its time, i wonder when it goes into uppers how the peristome may look like...

    Very pretty indeed. Hard to say for sure on the N. alata. The clone B I carry originates from Exotica as well. Although I would think that if another vendor is propagating it they would keep that information on the label. I would ask them.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hay, if you really want your plant to take off right away, fill the pitcher up at least halfway with a solution of half 2% milk and half sugar water. Add a recomended dose of superthrive (for this method i actualy use 3 drops per cup just fine), and fill the pitcher up. This will shorten the pitcher lifespan, but as it ages the rich fluid and nutrients will be rapidly absorbed, and you get a big boost in plant growth.
