Hello everyone my Ornata looks pure green with no veins going through it. As it matures during the season will it eventually get the veining? They just recently opened up. Or are they just not getting enough light?

wow, not sure about that. Mine has already quite a bit of veining. Never seen it green like that and the young pitchers start to develop veining quite fast. Does it have enough sunlight? they need a good amount of sunlight.

yes that is probably why. Put them in full sunlight but do it gradually if they were in the shade so they will not burn. Judging from the lack of coloring, they will probably need some acclimation to full sunlight, like an hour or 2 of sunlight for a few days, then 3 hours of sunlight per day for a few day, etc...

Thank you.

Edit: It's veining up now. See pics in my photo thread.
