    All of my Neps outside are just starting to pitcher again. They've been in suspended animation since about December.

    I got the same thing! I think the Sabre also prefers warmer temps. I've been growing it as a highlander, and it has started to come back since I moved it to the lowland house.

    I'm up in western MA, a bit farther north than georgia I'm assuming it was because of the days getting shorter since it grew strong all summer, but maybe I'm wrong.
    JB, it looks like we have a similar clone, both have striped peristomes. It's been so long since I've seen a normal pitcher that I can't really remember how dark it is normally.

    The one in the foreground had opened up recently when the picture was taken, but the one off to the right shows about how dark mine normally stay.

    wow, dark...
    it's kind of weird, because neither ventricosa, nor macrophylla, nor lowii usually gets that dark. I wonder if EP threw a bongso in or something.

    The last one reminds me of a new growing pitcher of S.purpurea
