    That looks like a good size pitcher on the khasiana x trunc, how many inches is it? Does it combine the growth rate of khasiana and the pitcher size of truncata?
    Glad to see the basal is done stalling, you'll have to add to this thread when it gets bigger

    it stalled for a while when i got it , Then a few months back it started growing like mad, it takes a while to inflate a pitcher, but they seem very long lasting, and are huge 8 plus inches.
    this is a week after the lid popped around the first to mid july, and its puffed up a little since.

    Nice! Definitely looks like it has more of a khasiana influence but the striped peristome is a nice touch. Can't to see what uppers will look like...

    So can I ask...what mix have you all got your khasiana in? Mine's in a more dry mix right now and I'm thinking of switching for perlite : lfs because the top is drying to crunchy out in the sun (in a coconut husk mix right now).

    Pics of my tiny khasiana that just opened a pitcher forthcoming..here's a picture of just a pitcher when it first opened. It has gotten more red since.

    Mine came in coconut husk/LFS as well but have since transplanted to a LFS/orchid bark/perlite mix. My top dries out like yours but I just make sure the bottom of the pot isn't dry.

    Oh coool, thanks!! that's what I've been slowly transitioning to too! I ran out of just straight bark, and started mixing in lfs : perlite: phrag mix (coco husk, hydroton balls?, perlite, lfs, random stuff I can't identify but hasn't killed anything yet, quartz rocks?).

    It's a fairly bullet proof plant once established. I do have a few random chunks of lava rocks in the mix as well, haven't tried hydroton balls yet though.
