    I checked my version of a double pot a few days ago and found this:



    This morning it looked like this:

    They grow extremely fast. It should be flowering in a few short months.

    Good luck with it!

    Flowering? I'd be thrilled if I got it past damp-off stage! I've had one of these things before, a stowaway from a visit with elgecko. I killed it after a few months.

    congrats jim!
    ya, i think the dewy pine might take a bit longer to flower than 2 months, unless you have some kind of magic power although, maybe you were thinking of Byblis?

    Making progress:>

    What kind of light is it getting? They need LOTS of light or they will get very leggy very fast. My mature plant is growing under a 40w (150w equivalent) 5000k CFL in one of those clip on reflectors with the tip of the bulb down among the leaves. It seems to have come through the dull dreary Winter here in the Northeast in good shape. It has stayed nice and compact but the plant and glands even under that amount of light for 16hrs a day are much more pale than when it is out in the full sun during the Summer last year.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Cool that you got one to sprout. I've always wanted a dewy pine!

    Good job.

    The oldest two leaves are 3/4" tall and sitting 1" under a Grolite, with 2 bulbs in it. In one day after snapping that picture, the third leaf looks like the other two, with that unfurling look. It really does grow fast. Should I sprinkle some freezed dried bloodworm "dust" on it now or wait a bit?
