    Pitchers?!!? HA HA! None whatsoever. There may have been some shriveled up ones when I got it, but they're clipped. I can try for a pic, but let me warn you-it is UGLY! Pitcherless neps are bad enough, but pitcherless neps left in a commercial greenhouse...whoa mama! I'm not too sure what I was thinking when I bought it this winter.



    Okay, here we go:

    Oh, and let's put this offer on hold for the time being while I sift through the responses thus far and see how far this shrub will go.

    cutting received - Thanks!
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    cutting received I'm hoping for a quick bounce back!

    what do you think better in the terrarium or better on a windowsill in a bag? probably terrarium... I just think it may be alittle warm...

    I'm having mixed results with cuttings from that same plant in a tank under lights. One is pitchering, another died. The one in water just under lights (no tank) is slowly chugging along too. My miranda cuttings have gone well with no tanks and just under lights. I like lights for my cuttings.

    xvart: I thought humidity was key usually to a succesful cutting? the general humidity within my apartment I think is fairly low, I'll check it when I get back home. but originally it was too low to really keep anything on a window sill without something to assist with the humidity...

    I placed the cutting into a LFSM/Perlite mix, and have it in my terrarium right now, bout temp 83 with about 80-85 humidity. I've got windowsill space but it doesn't get strong light for very much of the day...I have some random vft cuttings and a rescued orchid living it up, I just wasn't sure...

    Well that was quick. Not 36 - 48 hours later, I see some roots.

    Sure. Keep it in the terrarium. Just make sure to circulate the air so the cut end doesn't rot.
