    Rattler,

    The "stunting" of pitchers isn't too uncommon as a shock sign I have found. My 'Predator' was making 12-14" pitchers last fall and when I moved it inside they dropped to half that size. I had a fusca "Sarawak" put out a full formed upper that was 1" tall after being transplanted, before that it was making 6"ers. And I have a spathulata that went from 6" pitchers indoors over winter put out a 2" pitcher upon moving outside and then immediatly toss out a 8" pitcher.

    I'd just guess yours is a little shocky and once it stabilizes it'll bulk up a little.

    rattler,
    The shots of "little" pitchers are great, and that D. falconeri is beautiful.

    These two are recent arrivals, but they are growing and all the pitchers are "new":


    Good growing,

    Ludwig,
    I wish I knew! It's even darker than it appears in the photo. Since it is growing in virtually identical conditions as the more reddish plant, I've been assuming (hoping) it's genetic. BE did state that there were 3 clones, and they were the "most vigorous" they had raised.

    Yeah, definitely not very cool!

    But I must say a good chunk of it was my fault. I had the lights too close to my plants (CF bulbs) without any glass in between, so there was a nasty drying effect that happened. Since then I've adjusted my conditions so that I now have slabs of glass over my plants, protecting them from the hot lights.

    We'll see how my surviving plants adjust to these (hopefully) better conditions.
