    Wow that is awesome! Mines just started growing quickly...after like 4 months. I think the fact that my N.lowii x campanulata grew a large leaf that casts a shadow over it. This hybrid seems to like less than full sun.

    Gorgeous pitcher! Mind if I ask if you're using any fertiliser? Mines so far put out three pitchers and starting to inflate a fourth. Again gorgeous pitcher and can't wait for the peristomes to darken up like that!

    I spray diluted orchid fertilizer in the traps every now and then, but nothing crazy. I really have no idea why this past pitcher is so much bigger than the last. One thing that I have noticed though is that my other N. burkei x hamata in the same conditions has very small leaves and tends to grow a little more slowly. My guess is that my bigger plant leans more genetically towards the N. burkei parent than the N. hamata.

    Hmm... interesting that you say that. My other one is the same and has slowly been growing in size and just recently started putting out pitchers. Im interested to see if there's variations in these seed grown plant's.

    Here is the before and after of the peristome color. It has been about a month and you can see a new pitcher has opened within the last week in the background. The largest of them is nearing 5 inches tall

    Looking great! Might I ask where you got the net pots? I bought some off amazon but the slits go all the way up and thus dry too quickly...

    The pots in the photo are what came with the plants when I bought them.
