I'm particularly proud of this plant, I purchased from Ivan unrooted and it has grown roots and become my favorite heliamphora I own, and one of my favorite plants. It is developing a new pitcher right now!

Minor var. Pilosa AW 2

Is there any flytrap more frightening than Schuppenstiel I? This is just 1 of many divisions spawned from my original 2 Plants.

@MikeB, those plants look good! My 'FTS Maroon Monsters' don't have that much coloration and they're getting 40 DLI from Mars Hydro TS1000 lights. What's your secret?

They have the "maroon" part down pat, still working on the "monster" part.

My plants are outside and get direct sun from dawn until 2 PM. My Bohemian Garnet, Red Dragon, and Royal Red plants look like this, too.
