    Since this is the second anniversary of the sowing of the seeds from which these seedlings sprung forth, i thought i'd post a bit of an update.

    Yes, that's right...exactly two years ago today on June 22, 2010 the seeds for these seedlings were sown.

    Here is an indoors shot of the newest pitcher to open on my most robust seedling, finally showing some widening of peristome.



    And a close-up of the peristome.



    This robust seedling is spreading itself into the neighboring 5" pots.



    Really looking forward for its next pitcher to form, judging by the size of its newest leaf. (Attached to the plant seen in bottom row, second pot from the left)

    Great job, dvg! It's amazing to see how much quicker some are growing compared to others.

    Thanks Mato, the variation in growth rate might help explain why some tc'ed clones are more vigorous than others.

    Those seedlings are amazing! I agree, that variation is extremely interesting and it's really cool that you have a variegated one in the mix. Nice job!

    Wonderful!! So far Ive heard that my candy striped has been selected for the best coloring but it still needs time before getting shipped .


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

    Wow how exciting!! It turns out I'll be getting one of Twargor's candy striped soon, but surely a lot smaller then yours . Have any of the other plants put out any interesting pitchers lately?

    Thanks Lance.

    Twargor, another fellow and i all received the same batch of seeds, so your plant should be quite nice indeed, once you receive it.

    I do have stiped pitchers showing on other plants, but none of them are as advanced in either peristome flaring or striping as my robust clone is currently showing.
