    I have a snipe set up for one of these, so hopefully it will soon be a part of my collection too.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Here's mine:


    it's a 2.5" pot I think.

    And here's a thumbnail to click to see a big pic of a just opened pitcher that has yet to color up, but shows you the middle ridge of fuzz it's got near the mouth between the usual two ribs of fuzz (the one in the upper left corner of the above photo):

    Thanks for pointing this out as I probably would not have noticed - but my latest pitcher also has those mini-tendril protrusions coming from a little lump in the middle. Now that I'm looking closely, one of my earlier pitchers has a few sparse 'hairs' poking out of the area also... interesting.

    Hmmm - I don't see that feature on either parent.
    All the best,
    Ron

    Mine's in a west window with...4ish hours direct sunshine, 70ish during the day and 5-10 degrees cooler in the night, and 70% humidity according to my cheap humidity meter.

    I think that middle ridge of fuzz is probably a baby-nep feature that will go away when it's older, but that doesn't mean it isn't cute. That up close pitcher is about an inch tall.

    That's an interesting pitcher feature, Thez yo. I had a closer look for that on my plants and it either doesn't exist or isn't as well of a developed feature as it is on your plant.

    But it may not just be an adolescent transitory trait. Sometimes these anomalies continue on with the mature pitchers. Check out this thread with the pitcher belly button:
