    Are the first amp. pitchers really that different than the familiar looking ones?
    At first glance they don't look like amps but could be cause they're young...
    or I just don't know what I'm talking about!

    yeah I was wondering the same thing. They look very elongated but on closer look I notice the hairy leaf unfurling, the lid is small and tilted back as to allow canopy vegitation to fall in. 35% of the amps diet is other plants. The color is very nice. I actually got mine in a trade from Bucky. mine is an all green. I wish I had a red.

    Leave em. When I got me Amp I put moist spahgnum around them and they stayed humid enough during transistion. I still lost the top halves but the bottom halves stayed alive enough to feed. If they die completly cut em off at the top of the tendril,base of the leaf. I have found that misting Neps a lot during transition can help a lot with keeping pitchers. keep us posted and take more pics!
