    That seed batch has proven to be extremely variable. I've seen very plain to highly striped plants come out of it. This, I believe is the 1st one I've seen with a solid red peristome though. Very nice plant.

    Actually, this is the final stage of vetchii 'K'.

    When it first opens, the pitcher reveals its lovely striped permistone as shown below.



    Over time as the pitcher ages, the permistone turns red/bronze color.
