    Here's mine in an 8" pot


    (cocohusk under the latest leaf's tendril to elevate it so the pitcher doesn't turn out odd/lumpy against the pot rim)

    A pillow for your plant. Why doesn't this surprise me?

    I have been on vacation in Denver for a little over a week but it is always nice to come home, especially to a surprise like this. I upgraded it to a bigger pot before I left and it looks like it was just in time (except for being closer to the light leaving some red spots on the leaves) . I guess it was just saving up all that time it refused to pitcher.

    This pic doesn't quite show the size difference since the smaller pitcher is closer to the camera but it is significant.

    I love the speckling your pitchers show. I look forward to your updates!

    That is the biggest, nicest black truncata baby anywhere, Neps N Things! I might have a pitcher brewing that might be open upon my return.

    Looks very, very good. I can't believe how big yours is. I got mine from the first batch released in the US, and it's barely 4" across, making 3" pitchers. Grows so darn slow... It will be a long time yet til it's the size of yours, but seeing how good it looks will make the wait worth it.
