    what conditions do you have the cutting in now? bagged? what media?
    I think cuttings do best when the media isn't super saturated (or packed too tight) and there is lots of drainage. The leaves however need as high of humidity as you can give them, some place a clear bag over the plants, but I just mist multiple times per day, and drench the soil w good quality water once a week. Also make sure the cutting isn't in full shade, they still need some sun, just less than normal. SuperThrive also helps in my opinion for rooting cuttings.

    Very nice plants! Do you still have your kampotiana x (khasiana x alata) and if so where did you get that one? I'd love to compare mine with yours. I saw you had one on cpphotofinder

    I agree! I debated and debated spending the money to get one, looking online every day drooling over it. And the day I decided to get it, it was taken off the website lol I was so bummed! I missed it by one day!

    But in the end it all worked out and I appreciate having it even more now Such a Beauty!

    Did you post any pics of your growth spurt yet?

    I took it out of high humidity about two weeks ago and placed it in an area with dappled sunlight for it to get acclimated. It never seemed to miss a beat in its new area and looked really good until yesterday.

    It's potted in slightly moist sphagnum but maybe it's packed too tight? I usually don't have issues with the cuttings in this though. I was thinking about putting it back into more humid conditions but I'm afraid it'll turn black and die from too much moisture.

    Yup! I sill have it. It's putting out some bigger pitchers now (although its still a small guy IMO). I got mine from a friend here in Hawaii. If I remember correctly though (I can look at my notes when I get home) he tells me that the kampotiana used in the mix might be suspect, so yours might look different than mine. Ill try to take some pictures tomorrow of it for you so we can compare

    Somewhat.. It's the plant in the front left corner, stretching into it's neighbor's pot with that newest, large, heart-shaped leaf.

    Its a small one, I bet you're happy about its growth spurt for sure! I bet the next pitcher will be a nice one.
