That's fantastic. How do you get glowing green pitchers like that? The baby ones on my typical clone look almost translucent compared to yours.

I suspect that the green pitchers on mine were mainly due to low light, which encourages large pitchers but little colouration. I have subsequently moved this plant under a metal halide lamp and those pitchers are starting to colour. Baby Cephalotus pitchers are translucent.
