    Final update on that pitcher. The peristome folded back more than I thought it would but still by all regards a real beauty. I expect it will continue to get darker over the next week until it turns almost fully black like the peristomes on the previous pitchers.

    That thing is fantabulous. So far the best one i've seen. How old is it, out of curiosity?

    Thanks everyone. I'd love to see any of your qoh x kos as well even if they're not as big it would be cool to see how much variation shows up in this cross and how the plants develop over time.

    @ Brie
    I have had it just over a year but I'm guessing it is probably about two years old if not older since I'm sure BE had them in their possesion for a while and I know the vendor I purchased it from had the plant for a couple months before I bought it.

    @Exo
    I'm thinking it looks like it might take after it's daddy as well. I'm kind of hoping it will get that crazy peristome of its mothers but I think it will be more like its dad which still has a respectable peristome and is even darker than the mom. I can't wait to see how other peoples plants turn out. I have already seen other more squat pitchers with flared peristomes on others plants that look like they should take after the mother. I think there should be quite a few gems out of this cross. I almost wish I had another but I suppose space will be an issue one day with how massive truncs can get.
