    Neat! I'm sure they'll grow to become eye catchers

    No doubt... every one has the blood red peristome lining, and there are certainly some impressive variations in the color. If I had the room to raise up the other couple hundred I have I would just to see the variants, but I'd never have room for that at adult size.... :P

    The one you have with the stripes is awesome. Also, the one that you sent me has begun to show the same red/black
    peristome trait. I cant wait

    A lot of them have stripes, so that doesn't really narrow down which plant you're referring to. Granted my dark clone seems to have a lot more than the others, but nearly all of mine show striping somewhere. And I'm starting to wonder if the dark peristome lining is a locality/population trait for this group, or just a dominant trait from the parents....

    Cute little pitcher.
    I have no luck in germination this seeds, probably just the old seeds I got.

    N. rafflesiana are like other lowlanders, the seeds do tend to need to be pretty fresh to germinate. I got more than lucky, with over 1,200 seedlings sprouting from the "dark parent" batch. I don't have quite that many anymore, but....

    Anyway, more pics:
    "dark brown parent" dark clone still holds to its name with that lovely pink blush

    However, this sibling may beat it in overall color, with greater contrast but much heavier mottling. Maybe even darker red....

    N. rafflesiana "nivea parent" seedlings are becoming extremely diverse, however. Some look almost nivea-type

    Others are incredibly thin

    Another thin one.

    "Dark brown parent" still gaining size

    The light colored one finally opened a new pitcher

    "dark clone" is wonderfully mottled

    The dark, fat one is getting darker

    And, the really tubby plant

    Finally also repotted the select seedlings of the "nivea parent" batch I intend to keep. There are others of interest, but these are the biggest growers and have good variation.
    First, one of the really thin ones

    And the other

    The darkest

    And not only the biggest, but the one most resembling nivea
