  1. A video would be wonderful! as much as I love seeing wonderful singular pitchers in a photo, it’s also really nice to see whole plants and your entire growing setup. very inspirational. and that’s some wonderful color in your ventrata! I think I need to increase the light on mine…

  2. What an incredible collection!! A video would be awesome
