I have a much older sanguinea than that...looks to me like it has to do with age. Look at the first pic, the pitcher is mostly green. Look at gliders pic, and the pitchers are considerably more colorful. My plant lost the pitchers that were on it when I first got it, but it was even more orange than glider's

Prayer - how to do nothing and still think you're helping.
Keep in mind that BE grows it in intermediate conditions and my ultra lowland conditions are low 90s in the shade and warmer daily. Especially if its in the full sun, then the temperature shoots off much higher. The relative humidity here is 90% by night and 30% - 70% during the day. I didnt bother to bag it up to acclimatize it or try and slowly warm it up to my conditions by putting it in a shady spot first. I just threw it out in the sun on the first day and it grew. Don't try this with any other nep though. Sanguinea grows out in the sun in its natural conditions. I can't say the same if you try this on a northiana.... muahahahahahah!
More important for neps is air circulation. I've given many of my continuously pitchering rafflesianas and gracilis to some of my friends and the plants just stop pitchering. The difference in growing conditions is I leave mine outdoors while some of them grow theirs indoors or in areas with low amounts of air circulation. Some how the neps don't like the stagnant air.
Go figure, neps arent tillandsia...
So how big can these pitchers get?
Cobalt Crow, they can get to be about the size of a liter soda bottle.
I grow mine in my apt in Atlanta and don't have any problems. It even "bleeds". I plan on moving it outside once the pollen stops. All my temperate plants are yellow.
Fantastic guys, thanks! Very reassuring.
ok guys. here is my plant. the first pitcher was the single one it came with in december. it goes in order.
newest one. seems much bigger in real life...
Everything is explainable. The seemingly unexplainable is but a result of our insufficient knowledge.- Hans Brewer
yeh they do grow quite fast. My newest pitcher is double the size of the first one it came with
Mine doesn't have any pitchers that are liter size yet, but the ones at ABG do...
