    Mother N. medusa plant for trade.

    I traded a cutting to Victoria, and I have a 13 inch plant that I decided I wanted to trade, since I wasn't able to trade it to "Justlikeapill" because we made a mistake in our minds, I've decided to possibly trade this plant since I am only professional at making Nepenthes grow leaves. Not good. It has a it's leafspan is just over a foot, about 13 inches. One leaf is ready to pitcher.

    What I'm Interested in:

    Sarracenia
    Cephalotus (potted if you can, since I do not like it when their pitchers die off, I'd make 200 new topics out of worry!)
    Offers (Not Nepenthes or Utricularia. I am not very fond of dews either, since, even if I smashed every bone in my body in attempt to try and get one droplet of dew, I can't.)

    Well, yeah, thats it.

    He wanted to trade me a 13 inch plant and said he'd leep a basal, and I thought he wanted to send me a basal and said no thanks. By the time he got back to me I had traded with someone else. My bad!

    NeciFIX,

    if you haven't traded the medusa yet, don't. Read this discussion first, then change your setup accordingly. Worked for me, and it will most likely work for you, too. x medusa is WAY too beautiful a nepenthes to just trade away for some sarracenia :-)

    Dude, it costs so much money to get equipment. I just give up on Nepenthes total, they are total fussy plants that require everything perfect and beyond to make one pitcher.

    Maybe it is beautiful, but it's relatively hard to grow a majority of the Nepenthes well without a tropical climate and/or a terrarium with dozens of modifications. This may seem ignorant, but I believe it true in all my beliefs. Everyone I hear from, but most likely just "most people" who has a Nepenthes that makes good looking pitchers either has them in terrariums with premium media with 6-8 different types of soil mixed in and in some sort of system with extra/less humidity and controlled heat and some a natural rain system.

    I make 40 dollars a month, and I'm poor. So, I'm sticking to Sarras since they do good in my weather. I see nothing special about N. medusa, and it seems to be a demanding hybrid, and for only the ones living in wild, hot, steamy, wet, jungles, or with specialized terrariums with 90-100% humidity and very warm can grow them well. I can only provide one or the other, not both. Terrariums are for the rich, I can't afford such preposterous equipment and I don't see how that topic is supposed to be helpful. I'm willing to bet that if they were put in a lowland terrarium this plant would pump out pitchers like Wal-Mart re-stocking Dionaea, but, I'm simply too poor. My weather permits extreme heat, not humidity.

    I dunno man...I have a thorelii x truncata on my kitchen table in weak light that is about 2' long and 2' across with a pitcher on almost every leaf. I always forget about it and water the thing like once a week...and i've knocked it off the table 4 times and it hasn't skipped a beat.

    I've grown highland truncata in 104 degree weather for 3 months straight and it did great

    I think you just need to let the thing settle in more without changing anything. I'd offer to trade but besides neps, I barely have anything of interest unless you want a few P. Titan, a random 1st year sarr hybrid, and some creeping death x creeping death VFT 1st year seedlings

    I'd guess intermediate but it loves warmth.

    phissionkorps: That's just lucky.
