I got a bunch of Neps a couple weeks ago (my first Neps ever) and I was wondering when I could expect the pitchers to get all colorful. When they arrived, most pitchers were brown from the transportation shock, and the surviving ones were all plain green. The plants are relatively small (like 4 inches across).
Do existing green pitchers transform into colorful ones, given good conditions, or do colorful pitchers have to be colorful from the beginning (i.e. only new pitchers can be colorful).
The Sarracenia Purperia that I got at the same time as the Neps was also initially all green, but now there are little red sprouts coming out of the bottom. So I thought it was about time that my Neps showed me some color. SHOW ME THE COLOR!!
Anyways, let me know what you think.
P.S. The Neps are ventricosa, judith finn, sanguinea, and rafflesiana. Interestingly, the rafflesiana (my only lowlander) is growing the best in what I consider to be my "highland" terrarium. Weird.
