    Why didn't they flower?

    Last fall / winter I put many of Mexican pings at a west facing window sill that draws the cold from the outside. The leaves became succulent, responding to the cold, dryness, and lower photoperiod. I moved them all back to the rack, which gets southern exposure, along with a fluorescent lighting, as well as moist conditions and warmer temps. I expected flowering. Except for one plant (P. moctezumae x kohres), none have flowered. They're growing nicely and getting some color, but that's it. What went wrong?

    I would definitely say they are growing nicely. I've had the same issue with my P. agnata and P. 'Titan'

    Your aphrodite looks at least flowering size, so I can't say maturity is the problem. Hmm...

    Yeah, that's the only one doing anything this year. It seems that my perpetual state of taking leaf cuttings leaves me with nearly all small, young plants. This is the only other adult sized Mexican butterwort that I have. Looks great to me but no flower.

    They don't look like they formed Winter rosettes to me.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I have this problem also. In my case, it seems to be caused by either not enough light when the plants are in their succulent stage, and/or the plants don't get enough to eat before entering the afore mentioned state.

    I eliminated the pictures but I had two trays on a window sill and the they all went succulent. Anything now is in growth mode.
