    N. Talangensis

    I'm trying to see what this little guy is willing to be traded for. I bought it because I knew it was rare. Its not that it doesnt grow fast, it puts up a new leaf within 2 weeks, it's just that I can't tell if I'm doing anything right or wrong and I know it would go to somebody who knew how to take better care of it. I'm responsible for the 3 newest leaves, so I guess I'm doing something right.

    Frilleon, Carnivore12, and I we're having a chat this afternoon and we can't really agree if it looks like it will pitcher or not. Regardless, it does at least grow pretty quickly in my care. It outgrows my N. x Miranda just because the thing puts out 8 inch leaves now.




    Lately I have been curious to drive into a Pasian Truncata or a Truncata hybrid, but I ended up ordering my N. Sang from Andrew. I don't even know what Neps I want. I have an N. Reinwardtiana on the way too.

    Highlanders only please. I got lucky with an N. Bical once, but that was only because it was warm here...

    I found that N. talangensis was a very finicky plant in making pitchers. It also only made pitchers when the tendrils rested on moss. Now...once again...this is just in my experience. Also, compared to other species, it loved growing in live sphagum and prefers a day time max temps of 75F and cool nights at 65F or so.

    I successed to make my N.Talangensis produce pitchers. My experience is providing it more humidity than other highlanders. Daytime: 80%; Nighttime above 90%. But I am very curious about your Talangensis: your Talangensis puts up each new leave every two weeks? Or, I misunderstand you? My plant needs 1.5 month to produce a new leaf.

    Update: So I'll do a straight trade for a nice HL Truncata or an N Khasiana.

    I use Maxsea. My plants tend to grow stupid faster than their DNA allows. My ventricosa (Jacob Farin says this is a slow grower) puts out a new leaf/pitcher every week. I managed to revive some practically DOA stuff I've gotten as well with it.

    This was it exactly 7 days ago:



    This is it 2 days ago:


    This is it now:


    Feel free to PM me about my maxsea results. If you're interested in feeding, I've gotten some crazy results with this stuff. I know it's not a seasonal thing because I've seen my plants putter around normally before. That x Miranda leaf is twice the size of anything that came before in the year I've had it.

    Also, in the first pic, compare my Veitchii x Platy from a week ago to this guy here:

    Very amazing. How frequently you feed your plants with maxsea and how frequently spray their leaves?
