    Sean,

    Thanks for the insights, I'll pencile them down. Not sure on the mid-rib, could be a trick of the light in that pic. I'll check the plant and let you know. Wish I had shot the flower when it had one...

    how do you keep them cold at night? I live in GA and this is tricky. I have a room with very poor insulation in my house that my family calls "the icebox". I doubt that it goes below 50 at night or over 65 during the day in the winter. Would this be OK?

    Also, I saw your mexi-pings and N. x predator at the Southeaster flower show. They were incredible. The only CP's I have been sucessful with as of yet are mexi-pings, which grow like weeds for me. My P. gigantea is catching up to yours and it just offsetted!

    I have a sunroom that "leaks" like a sieve. I use a heater to keep it above freezing on really cold nights. But most nights it is in the 40-50 range and that should be fine for most of them. I have also grown a few outside and only brought them into the sunroom on nights ther is a frost danger so you might want to consider that too.

    Thanks for the compliments on the plants I had at SFS. Hope to have some good stuff this year too. Probably not the 'Predator' though as it is not pitchering well at the moment (Grrr!! )

    Pyro (or whoever has an answer) I'm unable to find anything smaller than medium size pine bark mulch around here. I did find cedar and cypress mulch. Can either of those be sustituted for the pine bark mulch?

    I thought I had mentioned it in the original post (gonna have to go back and check) but pine bark mulch is not an absolute. It is just what I chose to use. If you can not find it or you do not want to use it then just substitute peat and you will be fine.

    You did Pyro, but I wanted to stick as close to your original recipe as I could. The local Alco store has the cedar and cypress mulch. Figured if either of them would work, I'd get some and use the extra around a small bush that I have in the yard for weed suppresion. And why would I want to take the easy way out and substitute peat? Where's the fun if I can't make it harder than it really is?

    Oh I see... You are just trying to be difficult LOL. I think I'd still sub peat if you can not find the pine bark mulch. Go with known additives rather than experimenting unless you are willing to accept the possibility of a loss. I experiment because I don;t mind killing some things. But I have always been crazy like that...
