    Whoops misworded that, I meant 1 leaf per month.

    Which is about the same speed of a lowii, right?

    That's how fast mine grows roughly, but I'm sure there are more talented growers out there who can coax their plants to grow faster.

    Have you found N. attenboroughii to be fussy at all? From the research I have done, it seems that they do fine in a highland-intermediate range of temps, although I came across some crazy claiming his seedling had its biggest leaf jump under lowland conditions. My highland terrarium has had good highland temps this winter: temps around 70-73 during the day, occasionally it gets up to 75, and drops to 60 at night. However, it will probably be a little warmer during the summer (although I'm sure I could mess around with some different cooling options to remedy that).

    I found some seedlings for a good price at ******, but I wouldn't want to make a purchase unless my conditions were appropriate. What conditions have you found success with?

    I haven't had this species for very long, so take everything I say with a grain of salt...

    I haven't had trouble with it at all. Seems to respond well to standard highland/intermediate temps, and likes high light and humidity. Doesn't appreciate being kept too wet - I only water when the top of the media has almost dried out. Ultramafic soil doesn't appear to be necessary so far, but I'll have to see how my plant turns out long-term. I have heard that people claim this species - and other "intermediate" species like N. peltata - will do well under lowland conditions, but at any rate I'm not risking my only specimen to find out. Its natural altitude is a bit over 1000m, so that's what I would treat it as. Under those conditions, it's not been a difficult plant for me.

    Pssst...no vendor names on TF

    Glad to see the D. aliciae carpet sample is doing well hahaha. It seems like it would be hard to ever separate them out. I cannot tell where one plant ends and another begins! Everything looks great Alvin.

    Thanks Rich! I definitely sowed those D. aliciae far too close together, I'll have lots of fun trying to separate them out in the coming months.
