glabrata and burbidgeae---that's for pitcher development though. their leaves do just fine under bright light.
Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

well with my talan they didnt get red like most other plants would. The first indication was the edge of the leaves would yellow and brown.
Then if left in that enviroment the yellowing would move inward taking over the majority of the leaf.
It just didnt seem to have the typical auxillary pigments needed to deal with the extra energy... there was no "reddening" like you would expect.
This damage was not reversable either, once a leaf was damaged it was permanent.
Based on my experience, I would watch for the leaf edge to show any traces of yellowing.
It needed bright light, but not too bright... (ummmm my lighting is a little intense I guess) LOL
glabrata gets red leaves too exo
Now, back to talangensis, the damn plant is finicky point blank, i know a few people who can grow it incredibly well, but even Robert Cantley has problems....
This plant A, requires highland conditions, and B, requires pretty high humidity for the pitchers to even begin to develop on the first place, pitchers seem to abort rather easily, especially if you get the humidity TOO high to the point where the plant is damp, its tendrils from what i can tell, HATE with a passion, water getting on them...every time i would spray the tendril or anything, the pitcher in development would abort, however if i didnt, it would grow fine...i just chopped back my vine on mine back to the basal since the main vine wasnt doing too well anyway. it was one of my first plants
It arrived today, I can't post pictures on it but i am currently growing it in full sunlight for 6 hours with a cup on it for humidity outside
Moved it to indirect sunlight. The edges of the leaves are fuzzy, is that normal?
