    Mine seem to grow much better as HL....they HATE the heat.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Good to know, Exo. Glad I made the switch when I did.

    I'm so jealous of you guys!! I feel like Ive been scammed! I paid for a black truncata and mines green with a slight purple color on the peristome and lid, I know it isn't from a lack of light either. I was wondering if any body else on here has a very light clone
    Good Growing!

    Mine's been growing outside for the past year in San Diego, so it gets intermediate through to uhl conditions. I'd say it doesn't like uhl at all, but highland through intermediate it grows like a weed.

    Mine has grown quite a bit in the past year from an inch or two seedling last June to a 12 inch+ plant. I over fertilized it with coffee which helped with size growth but made the plant stop pitchering. It looks like it is starting back up again with this first small pitcher in a few months and more on the way.

    Some of mine are like that too. I have some from an older batch that are larger and darker and some from a newer batch that are like yours. I'm guessing they'll color up more as they mature.
