    I just got mine today, it looks pretty muck like Bella's......I can't wait to see what it turns into!
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    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 . . .

    Good growing, Jack

    lol! Depending on your perspective, these are strawberries that can bite back.

    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.
