[QUOTE=HeyPK;566605]Edge: It sure isn't griffithii, but it might be usteriana, which is also bullated somewhat, and has exactly that red color underneath. Usteriana takes a long time to get really big, but when it does it is more than twice the size of affinis. It gets as big as C. aponogetifolia. Your plants don't look exactly like usteriana, however. They seem even more bullated and the leaves look a little wider.
i don't think he has usteriana at all, i have it and is got a positive id (got it from Aaron T.) and it looks waay different than that when the young one comes out, and by the time 3-4 leaves are out (as in most his plants) they are huge...i don't think i have any really little ones to photograph this moment but yeah...
