    This is probably very boring to most of you but I'd like to share my Miranda, it's still pretty rare in my country I don't know anyone else here with a pitchering plant, so I consider myself very lucky. It has adapted to my climate but I do take it inside during winter.



    It pitchers only in dark corners, I find that amazing. Sometimes it pushes the pitcher under the stool and inflates there in the dark. Pitchers growing in the shade are about two to three times the size of those in the sun.

    These two are hiding behind,



    A recent one. I had to pull this one out from under a bucket, that's why it has a weird shape.



    Based on this Miranda, I am moving all my nepenthes gradually to the shade. I thought "the more sunlight, the better" but you learn something new every day...I guess the ideal condition is a balance between the shade and the sun.

    Bumpity bump bump. And I guess I got the date wrong in rules - it's actually supposed to be 07/31 so you still have today. Lets see those plants!

    You sure that's venosa? Awefully green, and wide mouthed for venosa.
    I know there's a green variation, but still.
    Good looking plant either way.

    yea I'm 100% sure, its in partial shade this year and under full sun the pitcher lids clasp a lot more and they are a lot more intensely colored. I've had it for two growing seasons and last year it looked more like a venosa, idk whats goin on this year
