    Looks like we received similar individuals, Don. I was glad to see the pitchers were much lighter than the Wistuba clone.

    It's interesting that you decided to use coir instead of sphagnum. Is this simply because it breaks down slower than the sphagnum?

    I was surprised the pic came out so well although the AW edwardsiana's peristome was slightly out of focus.

    I'm glad you didn't. I asked Rob to pick out the burb with reddest pitcher and red leaves. I'm very happy with his choice...

    I was also glad to see a lighter pitcher. Hopefully, it will stay that color under my conditions.

    I switched to coir because, not only does it break down slower, it also retains less moisture which suits my frequent watering schedule well.

    The intermediate Neps potted in this mix have really taken off.

    This is the brand I use with no worry of salts: Canna Coco Coir

    The xTrusmadiensis BE clone 2 finally developed its first pitcher for me. This one took forever to inflate!
