Does anyone have a new pitcher open on their neps that they'd like to brag about? Well here's where you can do it! Pics are always nice, i'll work on it today/tomorrow.

I've got new pitchers open on:
N. rajah (2-3 CM tall)
N. bicalcarata (4 CM tall)
N. albomarginata (2 CM tall)
N. ventricosa (5 inches tall)

Coming soon:
N. ephippiata
N. macfarlanei
N. maxima
N. sanguinea
N. alata
N. ventricosa (tons of them!)
N. copelandii
N. stenophylla
N. bongso

I can't wait! All of these pitchers are at least 25% (give or take) formed.

My truncata highland is almost finished with one... 8" tall so far, could be 9" when it opens. It isn't that big, relatively, but it's kind of a big deal because I accidently damaged the pitcher bud on the leaf that came before it. So there's a big constrast between the last pitcher I got and this one.

Also have a ventrata cutting I took from my main plant a long time ago that's about to open its first pitcher that could be considered a mature one.

Nice, my newest ventrata pitcher (which i failed to mention earlier) was damaged at about 50% inflation. I will only say that i was refilling the humidifier and the ventrata is very close to it. When i put the tank back on, splat. Strangely enough, it only suffered two small rips on the sides of the pitcher, and it it almost an inch larger than the previous one.

I also failed to mention my N. burbidgeae whose inflating pitcher is showing some dazzling coloring. I'll be sure to post a pic upon opening.

My ventricosa X inermis just opened a nice 4 inch upper pitcher with 3 or 4 more on the way ::p: Theres even a flower scape coming out of the top.
my N. coccinea is producing lots of new pitchers. I noticed 3, yes 3, basal shoots coming up on that, and the first basal is already producing a pitcher.
my N. ventrata also has lots of new pitchers inflating. This plant has 4 basal shoots and has it's first uppers forming.
the N. ampullaria has a new pitcher and another on the way, and the N. mixta has a new one coming.
My ventricosa, sanguinea, and judith finn are all popping new ones all the time

Well, i haven't measured it, so i don't know for sure. Here are pics of burbidgeae and rajah, i would have taken all of them, but the battery on my camera died.

Haven't had alot of time and the weather has not been cooperative with photo taking.  Had some sun today so snapped this quick while I was pulling plants. (Incase anyone is wondering the plant is about 10" diameter and the pitcher is about 7")

Backlit N. predator just open for a few days and starting to color up.
