    The rc x talang looks really interesting! I have both parents, though ironically the supposedly difficult talang is doing better than the rc, which won't produce any decent leaves or pitchers.....though I hope it does soon because I know that peristome on your hybrid isn't from the talang....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    It's been a while, I think the plants slowed down over the winter. They get some natural light in addition to the t5s. Looks like spring is coming though, because the plants just popped some new pitchers:

    N. Ceasarion (merrilliana x truncata) x veitchii:

    Thanks For Looking!

    I got a fogger and moved the setup into the basement, I think this will provide better conditions for them. It was getting too warm up in my room.

    Looks good, Bio. You may want to consider purchasing some fluorescent light panels (aka egg crate) for the plants to sit on. It will be a lot easier for you to gauge the moisture content if they aren't sitting in liquid and it also allows gas exchange from under the pot, which is somewhat important when the plants are in such a humid environment.

    Thanks! I've been wanting to get some egg crate. Can you just pick it up at Home Depot?

    Thanks man! This hybrid has really stunned me. I'm getting excited for it's next pitcher--the peristome keeps getting wider and wider .
