    Two of the "dark brown parent" plants are definitely becoming deserving of special mention. Both are already very heavily red mottled and sure to become solid red at maturity, and between them have a really nice appearance.
    First is one of the fat clones

    The other is the "dark clone," whose new pitcher still has yet to open and has continued to build the red mottling seen here. At this size it's already almost solid.

    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    pearldiver: yes, there were originally around 1200+ (I say plus because the number was too large to get an accurate count). That number dwindled quite a bit, but still leaves me with a good couple hundred extras in my greenhouse right now. And that was only the "dark brown parent." I have a couple dozen extra "nivea parent" plants and a couple "green and spotted parent" plants as well.

    jwalker: the two reddest of my plants are the ones in the last two pics...... the other seedlings I haven't kept are slower growing due to somewhat low light levels (must fix that at some point) and so a lot of their true colors haven't shown yet.

    I like the side by side comparison, the variation is interesting to look at.
