    I have some raff seedlings of similar size. These are a few of them. One year old now.




    Parents which produced the seeds.

    Nice! Yours are a little bigger than mine (though age is similar, mine a little older), though separate pots probably have an effect on that. I have yet to even see stripes on the peristomes of mine yet.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    Updates! They have continued to mature and diversify in appearance. Each pic is a different plant:

    The fattest plant. The pitchers at this size are nearly globose



    By far the darkest one, with pink wings and maroon mottling. I would bet it turns solid red or brown at maturity


    This is the palest one, with faint red spots only barely showing now

    It seems to be a shared trait by just about every plant too. Whether or not they're dark or pale they have that red lining.

    Another update on these guys
    The one I keep hoping is a tricolor :P

    The thin clone. You can see the red edge on the peristome very well on this one

    The dark clone. Stripes are appearing, the mottling is getting thicker and darker, and that peristome is wicked!

    Fatty is getting fatter

    Very interesting mottling on this one, very thick

    One of the lighter ones

    My 3rd major batch of rafflesiana seedlings has also begun to reach sizes worthy of photographing, so here are a few. This was from a nivea-type plant, and though some of the seedlings may well turn out as such, the main way to tell these ones apart is the thinner overall pitchers

    Most of my "spotted parent" plants are of a good size, but the pitchers are small due to some lower light. Hopefully I'll be able to get a few good shots soon though.

    This one just opened last night. I don't doubt it will be nearly solid red at maturity
