    whats lucky? The truncata thing? I think if you have all the growing variables right except one, the plant won't care

    Noo don't give up! Nepenthes are easy, they are just slow to accept changes but most do accept them.

    You need something easy to start out with like N. x ventrata. Medusa gives a lot of people trouble.

    for the majority...so do its parents

    #1 rule in growing CPs: persistance and patience.

    if you keep your nep in ONE place and you dont move it around. or transplant it or anything else like that. it will grow. my very first nepenthes was N. x ventrata. its supposedly the easiest. but i constantly changed growing conditions and repotted at least 3 times in 2 months. it never grew pitchers but grew leaves. so. i put it outside in a place that it only gets morning sun. after about 2-3 weeks it was making a pitcher but then a storm came along...i wont get into that my problem was constant change of conditions and right kind of light. what kind of lights do you use, Sam? i wanted my first Nep to be N. medusa. but i read up on it and i figured it wasnt the best to start with. so i got N. ventrata.

    Yo man,

    I can't PM you, Sam. It says you've exceeded your PM storing quota.

    LOL JRF!

    Yeah, I somehow have 66 PM's even though I have 0.

    PM me now.

    Yes, I got your PM's. Sorry guys.

    I have a N. ventricosa that was kept in stable conditions for months and it has only produced leaves. I don't care if they are "easy" which I disagree with, I once thought they looked beautiful and were my favourites, but all the scorn they've given me, I no longer find this attraction.

    And yes, I do give up on Nepenthes totally. I'm not going to piddle around with plants that need constant conditions and care to make one pitcher, they are the true Prima Donnas of CPs, Sarras are so much more beautiful too.

    My N. medusa has been making leaves. That's it.

    My lighting isn't bad that's for sure. Though, if I mention it, that'll be the immediate thing people point to.
