    hey cap, that coloration is typical on truncata before the leaf fully grows out and develops
    its my way of knowing "oh crap...the leaf is gonna get bigger"

    I cant remember where, but I saw a photo of a truncata about 3-4" in diameter. It was a solid bright fire engine red, even the leaves were red.

    Here is the newest pitcher to open, as well as some photos of the plant...
    the new pitcher is just above 7" and the plant diameter is 9"
    the pot is a 3 1/2" pot....
    the plant still has many of the leaves it arrived with lol
    if im not mistaken, its potted in peat/perlite/sphagnum/sand/osmunda fiber/orchid bark and a top dressing of what used to be live sphagnum but its kinda died back since the move inside for winter....
    The pitcher will color up more as it ages, just opened up over night

    Your plant has grown up quite a bit. After this the peristome starts to develope, getting larger and flaring.

    Wow, that is an impressive plant. Looks like it will need repotting so it doesn't tip the pot over.
