    Few more, mostly highlanders/intermediates I grow LL. Leaf size and general health is great, though the pitchers are a bit smaller and less colorful than they would be in cooler conditions:

    N. Giant Tiger from Capslock:


    veitchii and dyeriana chillin


    I got this as 'wittei', but that's not what it is. Dave Evans said it was most likely albo x fusca when it was much smaller, and the more it grows out, the more that seems correct:


    spathulata x maxima:

    which is flowering:


    "ventricosa". Probably really vent x gracilis:

    which is also flowering:


    chaniana x veitchii that just opened:


    fusca 'sarawak' (I'll probably have one or two of these to give out soon):


    Red Leopard:

    I actually have a Q for ya PK:

    How come the newest leaf on your campanulata is sooo much smaller than the older leaves? Is it heat stress?

    Thanks everyone.

    V,
    It's easy, as long as you carefully acclimate it. The consensus on that plant seems to be that you have to take special care until it sets in, but then it starts to grow like gangbusters. I kept a bag over it for about 2 weeks, and kept it in pretty low light. Consequently, it didn't even lose any pitchers or anything. I think the leaf is so small because that's the one it made right when I got it. I think due to stress of shipping and repotting, it just opened up prematurely. The leaf it's making now is about 2x as long as that and not unfurling yet.

    I also grow this plan in my standard mix + horticultural lime. If anyone else gets this plant, my advice is to not mess with figuring out the proper ratio of lime, etc, and just pot in sphag or lava rock or something. The plant doesn't need the lime to grow, but probably won't do too great in a peat-based media (too acidic).
