Sorry for the late reply. Didn't get a chance till now to take some pics. I have had mine for a while now...hmm...according to my images...nov 2, 09.
one of the seedlings has pitchers darker than the other.
This is how they looked when I got them.
PS: Let me know if you want bigger pics.
Sweeet -- and to think that I only get strawberries in containers like that.
Vigorous little buggers, though N. truncata is characteristically fast. My Pasian Highlander was the size of a US half-dollar when I received it, wilted and near death. Wthin fifteen months, it was producing 10-15 cm pitchers and taking over . . .
I am definitely curious to see how it does . . .

I'm starting to see your slant on things BB... I'm gettin' dizzy.
Good growing, Jack

wow vraev, those plants look awesome compared to mine. It only has 4 leaves and only 1 of its 4 pitchers has a dark coloration. (I haven't given the most recent and largest one a chance to color up though) I guess a will blame my plants set back on it getting attacked by some unknown pest or taking a major disliking to my conditions.
Thanks Ant. I am happy that they are doing ok in my intermediate conditions. I do however realize that they are not the best they can be as my lighting isn't too great. The lights are too far away for them. I am considering appending to the light source, although with the start of current heat waves, the rest of the highlanders that grow with it will not appreciate it at all.
don't do a thing they look great, and we will have a source for your conditions, if some one needs to try a little less light , yours looks just a big as mine under t-5's in a highland terrarium, and the color on the picthers looks just as dark. if they were put side by side id almost bet yours is larger than mine, nad i got mine in november so ive had mine about the same time. I think they are all doing well in all conditions, isn't some one out there growing theirs in a lowland terr? .
I dont see the extra hairy patch some have just below the front lip , mine doesnt have it either.
My seedling JUST arrived in the mail... (It was supposed to arrive yesterday, but what with the Holidays I'm not going to judge the USPS too harshly...)
I've been waiting all day for the mail guy to arrive... I was doing dishes in the kitchen and my wife shouts "The mail guy's on the front steps and he's got a Priority Mail package!" outSTANDing. My worst fears of the seedling spending Christmas Eve slowly freezing on my front stoop has been averted... NOW I can go leave to see my relatives.
Yea uphwiz I received mine the beginning of Nov and am growing them in lowland conditions. So far so good...they are growing nicely and a nice green color as with most small neps. I have two and both pitchering nicely as well. I will post pics later when I get time.
