    I really can't wait to see that N. lavicola grow up. Do you fertilize your Nepenthes?

    Yes I do. Once a week foliar spray, once a month pitcher feeding, and coffee every 6 months.

    I harass them every morning to grow faster. N. lavicola got the hint. It's growing faster than N. maxima, glabrata, burbidgeae, and burkei. And everything I read about it said that it is slow....

    BTW, N. lavicola is opening a new pitcher right now, and it's deliciously striped.

    And we all know how Dionaea came from Drosera. Well, this D. rotundifolia looks a lot like an unopened Dionaea trap. Maybe Dionaea diverged from the same ancestor as D. rotundifolia?

    That's the entire reason I bought that purp. Might make for interesting hybrids.
    The Psygmorchis is surprisingly easy to grow, and the flower is really, really nice.

    The lavicola has really darkened. I like the green peristome with the red stripes. 'Always keeping an eye out for updates on that one. I'm tempted to look up Psygmorchis but I'm just gonna wait for a photo of the flower on yours.
