    Hey Tanukimo! Yes, they become slipery due to a wax coating that protects the leaves from water damage also leaves of b.reducta are brittle, so theyre very stiff and break easily if bent! just like heliamphora, i want to get a hold of a humboldtii plug soon so i can try growing it on here :P hopefully i win it in the nasc auction.

    Don't you already have humboldtii? Or at least, it is on your grow list.

    heres an update! its been what...2 months? its definitely reaching its original size, especially with this hot California-soon to be summer sun. Check out the last pic, it catches bugs on its own.






    It readily catches fungus gnats

    This really makes me miss my B. reducta. It looks really good. It's on its way now.

    what happened to your B. reducta? I also had one prior to owning this one but mom killed it from overwatering it, pure peat isnt good in my experience. So now I use peat and sand mixed with dead LFS. Its amazing!

    This last winter killed it. It got too cold without day temps rising enough, and it rotted out.
    Same thing happened to my eddie.

    What is the maximum height a B. reducta can reach in closed culture?
