N. Ampullaria Hot Lips & Light Red Peristome Update.

Ahh...the two variants do not disappoint and bloom well, with pitchers getting to normal size...except for the mercurial like behaviour of the peristome. What is supposedly hot lips ie full red peristome becomes light red, only around the rim and the light red becomes full red...baffling. Somehow it got to do with the amount of sunlight "hitting" the pitcher directly and for a certain hours of the day, of which I still haven't got time to experiment ie shifting of location/placement and so forth.
