    Can you give some culture conditions your plant is getting? light, temperature, humidity/moisture levels. Kind of water etc..

    Since you asked..

    H. minor Auyan Tepui young seedling just starting to make mature pitchers. The nectar spoon is not developed well on this first mature pitcher.



    Bit older H. minor Auyan Tepui. A different clone

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hi,

    this is a H. minor I bought two weeks ago in a local DIY-store:



    Dying tops are often caused by low humidity and/or too high temperatures.

    I have grown it on the window sill sice I got it feb. 15- march15 and for a while I put a cup over the plant for extra humidity, untill it grew too big for the cup. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] from 9-12 it usually gets full sun. and from 12-3 it gets bright sunlight.but for a for the rest of the year and untill march it will prob be overcast.

    It gets kinda cold here on the central coast, in the house, 60-70 deegrees and on hot days 75-80. (I am guessing I get the same weather as ceph88 up in S.F.)

    I usually water every day, one time I dryed it out too long and almost killed it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] but after I put in a ton of water, an hour later it wasn't wilting anymore. alot of times I leave a little water in the tray.(I am confused, some people say to alwas leave a half inch to an inch water in the tray, some people say to always keep the soil wet,some people say keep it just barley damp, and some people say to let it dry out beetween waterings! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] ) whitch do you perfer?

    Do you guys/girls keep your helys in a terrarium? I did, for about a month, but this green slime stuff, white powder, and moss grew on the sides of the terra-cotta clay pots and these little white bugs that crawl really fast that are in the soil and on the bottom of the pot. (a little bigger than aphids)
    I haven't been able to get rid of any of these, even after I took everything out of the terrarium!

    this is only half of what I wrote before it got erased! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]
