    Well, I imagine theyll get as big as any other Nepenthes would.. Im not sure if anyone has a mature cross yet, Paul gave a lot of these to a lot of people from what I understand. I've seen pictures of much larger plants than mine.

    LOL Neps grow to different sizes. Different pitcher sizes, different leaf sizes. I wasn't referring to vining.

    Phosphorus deficiency. Causes anthocyanin buildup and negatively impacts root growth. It results from the low pH of Sphag locking up available P in the soil. It's further induced when the plant wants to grow vigorously, such as after exposure to good conditions (high light/humidity/etc) or root disturbance (transplanting/repotting).

    Introducing food through the roots just results in it being locked up, so foliar feeding a high-P fertilizer will green your plant up.

    Very interesting! I have a young plant that did the exact same thing. It was green when I got it but is now the same red as the ops is.

    Mine is a N. (ventricosa x spectabilis) x tenius

    Blooming (not a concern because of the plant's age), root growth, and vigor get impacted by low P. However, CPs are adapted to tolerate this type of deficiency much more than any other plants. So I'd say if you like it, leave it.
