New N. bicalcarata 'red' pitcher
These next two pictures are of my N. ampullaria which hasn't pitchered since July of 2002. If anyone can provide tips on what looks like is wrong with it please repsond! I really appreaciate it, it is a super plant and I would like to get it to pitcher for me. I personally was thinking maybe it isn't pitchering as it may be preparing to flower? All replies welcomed! Also the care of the N. ampullaria are as follows for reference:
Water- RO on the tray system.
Light- 2 4 ft (120 cm) long fluorescent bulbs about 2-2 1/2 ft (60-75 cm0 away from the plant.
Humidity- high, an N. bicalcarata pitchers so I assume it should be plenty high enough but maybe it isn't.
Soil- long fiber Chilean sphagnum moss.
Temperature- low, 70 night 73-75F day time.
