    my leaves shrunk but not the pitchers. my guess is because of shipping but its all good.
    the pitchers are still getting larger. the nectar isnt as pigmented as it used to be but you can still see that it was and still is a bit.

    Very nice indeed! Wow Andy has a good deal on those plants! I might have to get me another! I bought this blood red about a week ago, though it is very healthy it's a lot smaller then what Andy is offering. At least it seems to be a fast grower! This photo was taken the day after I got it, and the new chute on top has already almost completely unfolded!

    Wow, you plants are looking great guys! Odd that your leaves shrunk like that SirK especially with the pitchers still a respectable size!

    That's common SirK. Most of my neps when I first get them home, make smaller leaves and bigger pitchers at first. I think it's a change in light levels maybe. Anyway, it does correct itself soon in that both the leaves and pitchers will continue to increase in size.

    Well I have received my sanguinea 'Orange' that I ordered Sunday 3/2 from Andy's site Wednesday 3/5! And I must say... WOW! The plant is huge! I am still new at growing Nep's so I haven't had the chance to see many of them in real life. Well this Nep by far is the largest I have had a chance to see up close! The plant is 6+ inches across!! The only problem I have found is that it received some damage during the shipping process, but I don't beleive it is anything life ferreting. Just a couple of it's leaves where broken in the middle, and one of it's largest pitchers (4 inches!) was crushed. I'll post some pic's here in a week or so. For the time being I want to give the poor thing some quiet time in my tank to recuperate from it's rough handling from the USPS.

    Thanks again Nepenthes for sharen! The plant is just amazing!!
