Most nepenthes I can just dump into my growspace and they grow on their merry way, but a couple I'm still having trouble with so I'm here soliciting advice if anyone has any. Here are my misbehaving plants with descriptions:
N.sp Doorman's top #2:
It barely has 5 leaves on it, maybe thinking about making a pitcher. It grows slow as molasses, and is just generally angry. If it's in full sun, the leaves turn red and when not it goes back to green. I can't get it to grow any faster than villosa and that's saying a lot. I coffee'd it 2 months ago and it's in an lfs : perlite mix, gets 70's by day and low 60's by night. Humidity...considering it's still just a big rosette a year later of the same size (maybe 3" across), it should be pretty high so close to the soil. Anyone successfully grow this one and can give me pointers?
Same conditions as the above N.sp Doorman's top#2, and I swear it's shrinking when it was actually bigger earlier in the year when it was warmer during the day and night, which is strange considering it's supposed to be good and solid highland. It would be an exaggeration to say that it's even penny sized.
I've had it for a year and ... well, it's put up a basal and gained some height, but looks like it wants to die and definitely doesn't look vigorous. Same lfs : perlite mix, plenty of direct sunshine, not so great humidity but it's pretty hard - temps are again 70's day and 60's night. For a month 3 or 4 months ago it was making tiny pitchers and looking happier but now it's kaput again..
Same conditions as the above plants...doesn't look bad but isn't really growing and hasn't made a pitcher for me yet. The N.tenuis I got in the same shipment as it is growing like a weed in comparison so I'm not sure what's up. It wasn't growing when it was warmer earlier in the year either - high 80's by day and a struggle to hit upper 70's by night. Is it really slow to acclimate or something?
Same as campanulata, doesn't look bad, but doesn't do anything. And I really want to have a nice burkei because they have such nice spots
Any advice is appreciated.
