    Okay, here are a couple of quick teaser pics of my largest seedling, which is growing in a 6" pot.



    This seedling as well as the others were transplanted in groups of 4 into 6" pots back in May of this year, and from the wild look of these pots, another transplant might be coming soon.

    And here is the newly opened pitcher (measured at just under 1.5" tall) on this seedling and if you look carefully, you might notice that there is a single red stripe in the upper right corner of the peristome...not sure if it will color up with more striping at this stage, but the lid only started to open up a day or so ago, so time will tell.

    So why are the striped squat Bario veitchii so hard to come by in the states? I've got 3 seed grown veitchii HL and a SG veitchii K, but still can't seem to find this one.

    I don't believe this N. veitchii form is anywhere in commercial production yet.

    These seeds were wild collected by locals and then distributed to friends and CP forum members around the world.

    In order to get some of these plants or seeds, you either had to have been in the right place at the right time or have known someone that was fortunate enough to have gotten some themselves.

    There were a few people in North America that got some of these seeds...Sirkristoff and Capslock, for instance, being two members located in the States...

    Then how do you explain plants like this in people's personal collections?

    I'd guess that they either had seeds or plant material sent to them that was at one time collected from the Bario locale.

    Then once they had the plant material or seeds even, these would be further propagated and shared with friends or other hobbyists...the same as it always is.

    Yeah just because someone has an amazing specimen doesn't mean it is in commercial production...
