    Question

    Well, my little N. 'Judith Finn' baby has recovered its ordeal that I'll describe later. Well, here are some pics of its new developing pitchers (which take forever to grow):

    This pitcher is the largest, and the first to develop in the new terrarium. It's about one inch in length:





    Here's the newest pitcher, which looks a bit more promising than the largest one:



    I really think I need to repot this guy into a 4-5 inch pot (It's been in a 3-inch pot for about 2 or so years). Does anyone have any good soil mixes? Right now, mine is in something like peat moss, lava rock, perlite, and some LFS. I got my plant bare-root from **********.

    Well, the thing is that when the largest pitcher was really little and like a tiny fuzz-ball, it was long and white, while this new one is red-ish-green and squat. And that, in my opinion, is a good thing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Looking good Ben. You'll have to post another picture once that pitcher fully develops.

    Ok, I now think that this pitcher will open real soon, since when I shine light on the side of the pitcher, I can see the outline of the red peristome, and I'm sure it'll be very pretty. Plus, I can see a bunch of digestive stuff in the pitcher.

    Here's a pic:
