I threw it out in the open conditions, mine is also starting to move at the growth point. It's actually starting to color up pretty well. The pitcher lids haven't reopened yet though. They're pretty much hypersensitive to humidity changes. On my domed cephs, they'll begin to lower their lids within the hour.

Yeah I noticed the humidity thing, our weather changed a lot since I bought the plant so I had to bag it. I think that I'll start poking some holes in the bag to start the acclimation process.

I've been reasonably impressed with led lights so far

Are you tray watering yours? I've been pretty conservative about it. I got the plant almost drying out before I water it again. It's finally forming its first pitcher in the new environment. Had some small non carnivorous leaves form but it took a bit to acclimate.

Edit: I went to check it out after this post and saw a pitcher break through from under the moss and a couple more further in. I'm definitely stoked to see this plant in the next couple months :D

I think the 3-4 of us in here got our Eden Black from the same source :lol:

Mine came looking like the ones here too, but got colored up under my LED lights.

He messaged me and offered me one also, but I had to pass because of the wife going wild with some renovations. (Translation: She spent the money, bought all the stuff she wanted, and I tore apart two bathrooms and renovated them)
Seeing these pics of these EB's, I'm now kicking myself more than a little.
Live and learn, and jump on it next time!
