Wow, i never expected so many comments
Capensis: the bagged one is bicalcarata, the other two are ampulaira
cmm388: i'd agree with you, but i'm doing it out of fun, to learn to see if plants can adapt to other 'happy-medium' conditions
crystal: 25-26 cel day, room temp nights(depending on season, varies between 10c and 21c)
ok, so to try to answer all of your questions... but before i do, i'm growing it like this cause it's fun, and i like to see and learn from a plants behaviour.
The temperates are just plain not happy in there... rotund is going dormant, anglica is dormant, and intermedia as well... tey have to come out. as for the s. catesbaei, well, once it's big enough, it'll be moved outside, or at least in partial sunlight. got it as a gift, and i like the look.
i agree about the utric, but i have a plan, i let about 3 inches diameter around it, to allow it to spread without being in contact with other root systems (ya right, i'll eventually always find u. livida in my moved plants, it really spreads) i'll eventually just keep the 'heart' of it, and trade off the sides that branch out. but i'm not worried, i like the look, and i have a little competition going between the livida and bisquamata, and soon to arrive sandersonii (evil bunny ears).
the heli minor is real happy, and the terra sees a decent temp. drop at night, it's making real nice nectar spoons now, and from what it looked like when it first started off, they aren't that slow growing.
i like to see which do well amongst each other, and you guys are right, the temperates are just not meant to be with the tropicals, i cut the capensis stalks, i keep finding rogue binata from old roots that pop up when moving the plants around (which is real sweet to watch grow, it thought it was rotundifolia, until a newer trap may a Y...)
i'm sure, come a year from now, i'll have sorted all of them into their proper terra's setups.
Don't forget to have fun guys and girls, that's why we grow these plants! It's well worth losing a plant over 6 months due to it not being in it's proper conditions, and all the while learning and researching what might be wrong. I ended up learning more than what i was intending on learning in the first place. (in reference to my n. ephippiata )
