    Wow, yours are WAY ahead of mine. I have a lot of them, but they are still tiny. I was a little late to the seed party, though, and am somewhat surprised to have gotten the germination that I did considering the seed age.

    I got to say that the growth rate is very impressing, those seedlings look very promising!

    Regards,

    Any updates on how these babies are doing?

    I thought that my largest seedling showed a single red stripe on it's last pitcher.

    The fellow that sent me my seeds said that these were the form of N. veitchii that had the red ball-shaped pitchers...i absolutely love that form.

    Might have to start a new thread when the newest pitcher opens.

    WOW! I would die for some of those


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Yes, i've been debating on posting some pics of my N. veitchii Bario Highland Candy-Striped babies.

    I have plants up to 3 inches across all the way down to less than 1 inch across...the proverbial runt of the litter.

    The largest one is nicely colored up in a deep red, and a few of the others are showing hints of red tinge on their leaves and pitchers as well.

    As i said, i'm sure that the last pitcher on my largest seedling showed a single red stripe on the last pitcher, so i'm waiting to see what this next one, which is already larger in size, will reveal in the way of striping.

    I've fed these plants coffee, a weakly diluted fertilizer solution a couple of times, betta pellets, but mostly they were fed with tropical springtails when they were smaller.

    I'd bait the springtails into the pitchers by leaving premoistened bloodworms near the peristomes.

    Once the pitchers became full enough, they blacken near the top and close up for business, all the while digesting the contents in the pitchers.

    Now a few of the plants are large enough to take D. melanogaster flightless fruit flies.

    I'll probably start a new thread in a bit and show y'all what i have going with regards to this N. veitchii form, but i want this newest pitcher to open and hopefully color up before i post.

    In the meantime, maybe some of the others that were fortunate enough to also receive these seeds can share what they having growing.
