    Thats my fsvorite part for my N. ventricosa. Its colors always look more stunning at that stage then it just goes down hill. I think its because the lid always curls! My sang. Is the best after like 3 bays and its red shows up better.

    Probably about 7 - 7.5 inches, from tendril attachment to lid. It's coloring up nicely now.

    It's starting to color up some, but it's still got a ways to go compared to it's brothers. I almost wish it would stay the current colors.

    It starts browning and losing shape and structure. The lid will also collapse in shape.

    i wonder what would happen if you tape the lid or something to make it open later, would it inflate more?

    Nope. Internal pressure is not what causes the pitcher growth and inflation. If you sealed the lid with superglue it wouldn't keep getting bigger and bigger and then explode. It would grow to the normal size (given that the superglue or tape did not negatively affect growth) and then just stop like normal. It would exactly like the others, just not open.
