    Giveaway: N. 'king-tiger' x mirabilis 'kuraburi'

    I am offering one of the plants in the photos below. I have been told that they are N. 'king-tiger' x mirabilis 'kuraburi', but I cannot guarantee their parentage. I received this plant earlier this year (February?) out of TC from Steve Sardinia. I'm not sure if the culture was a seed or a cutting. I have grown these in my highland tank which gets temps between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit in a bagged pot (high humidity). This is a lowland plant so it should probably get higher temperatures, but I didn't have anywhere else to grow it, and it seems to be liking my conditions. They are not hardened off enough to handle very bright light -- you can see there are some burnt areas on the leaves from when I took the bag off for a day or two.



    The biggest pitchers are a bit shorter than an inch:


    I will pick one of the larger plants shown in the photo. If you have not had any experience with nepenthes or cannot supply the proper conditions for this plant, please do not enter.

    Please enter in this format:

    ...

    A random drawing will be held this Saturday (7/5/14) and the winner will be notified. The plant will be shipped bare root and I will cover the costs. Enjoy!

    PS. The plant will be shipped on Monday (7/7/14) .

    PPS. I will not be able to ship to those outside the US. I apologize that I did not clarify this earlier.

    It is a lowlander, but it has been growing pretty successfully in my conditions for some months right out of TC. I think having it bagged helps a bit. The conditions I have been providing are also on the higher end of the temperature range for highland plants, it's probably more intermediate.
