    Mine is teeny tiny, an inch across at most. Just generic infantile green pitchers for now.

    I'm guessing that you've seen the Black truncata baby in this thread. Shows a nice progression with color becoming more apparent in the recent pic. Then there's the 'Official thread' on these little guys (now if we can just get Av to stop taking his pictures out).

    Here's a pic of mine taken around 12.20.09. (I'm attempting to document it's monthly progression since arrival in my growlist). The good: growing reasonably well & starting to show color. The not-so-good: the latest pitcher has 'small lid syndrome'. The earlier pitchers were fine so I hope this is not a habit that continues... The leaf @~5:30 is currently inflating a pitcher, so I shouldn't have long to wait...


    ... and here's a closeup of the quasi-lidless pitcher from today showing some color:

    Mine has a bit of colour

    Early pic


    Same pitcher a bit later


    entire plant


    The growing conditions are:
    day/night temp: 24/12C
    day/night humidity: 50/60% (yea it is kinda low)
    medium: sphagnum, i picked out the colourful bits which explains its red colour
    light: i forget how many hours, probably 14h, half a meter from 6 t5s.

    Those pics are a bit old. The reddish pitcher in the third picture is now as dark as the first one. I'll try to take some newer pics when I get the chance.

    Canada only got 20 of these babies, and its nice to see that one is that dark Z! Heres another Canadian one although not as dark. Latest pitcher:



    Whole plant, as you can see the other leaf with an older pitcher has some brown spots, I found some weird whilte mold on it and when clean off it left some really dark stuff which came off only if I pressed hard so thats from bruising. The Fungus has presented itself on two other occasions on other neps, luckily it goes away once I clean it the first time.

    Nice plant. Mine got attacked by mites and its only now producing its first pitcher. (The leaf is still bigger then the ones it arrived with, so that at least it hasn't fallen to far behind.)

    Some of the black truncata seedlings which arrived last December.

    Conditions: Lowland
    Temperatures: 33C/92F (day), 24C/75F(night)

    The newest leaves are larger than the ones that came with the plant.


    Pitchers from two different plants with colouration. The third plant have all green pitchers.




    Another plant.


    The latest pitcher, with colouration.
