    Absolutely no forgiveness; and yes, it was and is the same plant, though with a bit more color and less likely to be overgrown by the green hell that is Polytrichum . . .

    BigB....are u sure?..that isn't polytricum. atleast not most of it...there seems some which can be polytricum though. this looks more like a sheet moss species. polytricum is a lot bigger....isn't it? this is typically almost all polytricum species...size wise...also polytricum moss ends up being a lot more thicker and vascular. Also a lot darker green generally. If you look around, u can see both mosses in question in these below pics. Polytricum is evident...the other one is all over too...just a bit sparse in these pics. It is probably a separate species of moss that is the bane of my existence in pic 1 that drowns everything in my tank...the lighter fluffier sheet moss.

    I did remove a great deal of the moss from the pots; and there are, after all, something on the order of seventy-five species of Polytrichum -- some greener; some more vascular in appearance; some less so; and they vary in size. It was more of an issue when the plants were seedlings . . .

    Fair enough. I am only familiar with 4 of the Polytricum species and all of those are vascular and very rigid.

    Nice pic of the plant updated btw.. looks fantastic. Would kill to have a plant that beautiful. lol

    Here is a recent update on that same coffee-chugging plant from Borneo, with its latest pitcher still opening and coloring up . . .

    Ahrg... And mines starting to get shrinky dinkie at the moment...it was growing fine up until a week ago put out a tiny new leaf and i think its maybe my light its a 250 watt cfl light but its been kinda hot ...so im not sure if that's the case or if im loosing my mind. But yours looks great hun. The atten is doing great but it may be getting shrinky leave to... Any advice on keeping fluid in the seedling pitchers cause i wanna try and feed them but without fluid they turn blackish.
