    A new pitcher popped open today and I am so excited that I can't even wait for it to finish opening before posting a few pics.

    First here is a pic of the newest pitcher on June 20, 2010

    These pics were taken June 24-29, 2011

    lol. I guess it was annoying for the months I had to wait to see it pitcher again but now I can see it was worth the sacrifice. I think I'll take it a little easier on the coffee from here on out so I can keep seeing these beauties.

    Update from tonight. It is starting to show some of it's parents famous peristome flare as well as picking up a bit of color.

    HOLY CRAP
    That's...HUGE! How truncata-like though!
    Can't wait to see it catch up with pitchers, too!

    @Neps_N_Things: I would be super excited about that pitcher, too! WOWWWWW. I'm stoked for the updates!

    May I ask how much coffee you used on it, and how often?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I used just liquid black coffee probably about once every 3 weeks to a month for probably seven months and every leaf was dramatically bigger than the last and it seemed to love it so I kept on going. Eventually though it stopped setting pitchers so I left it alone to detox and that probably took 3 months before it started inflating pitchers again. The first pitcher was that real small one you can see in the earlier pitchers. Now it has the huge one and another medium sized one just opened since for some reason it decided to backfill and inflated a tendril on an earlier leaf. There is a pitcher forming on the long tendril you can see in the previous post which I think should be even bigger than the one shown here.

    Anyway I think this pitcher should be finished opening and coloring up in a day or two and I'll do a final update on it then.
