    Sweet pics, thanks for sharing.

    Slightly off topic question... it looks like you are growing them in a greenhouse... yes?
    I typo, therefore I edit.

    They look nice. What is that compost? It looks like peat/sand with maybe some perlite in it.

    Regards,

    MY GOD! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] Those are some beautiful plants you got there! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I have a truncata but it's just a baby. So it will take a looooooooong time for it to grow like that!

    Mike,

    nice pictures! Am I correct in stating that your two
    truncata x veitchii plants have a different degree in peristome
    colouring? My specimen has almost no colouration at all,
    except for a few stripes. Conditions it grows in are ok, other
    plants get a 'normal' colour and it now produces 20 cm
    pitchers.
