    Unhappy

    I bought the plant named in the topic form Wistuba at spring. It was labeled "lowland" there. The plant is not feeling very well. Anybody has cultivating tips? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Howdy Jebiz,

    Huh lowland? From everything I have seen it is usually considered a highland although not a very demanding one at that.

    Have not heard anyone growing it as a lowland before. If you are then perhaps treating it more like an intermediate/highland will improve it greatly.

    What have your day and night temperatures been and how long have you had it?

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

    Yeah........ The temperature is about 25 C at and maybe 19 at night. Please post hints for intermediates/highlands here cause the only intermediate/highland I ever have grown was an N.alata. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_o_32.gif[/img]



    ( I am quite the beginner and I at least now grow CPs low-budget. I have not yet bought any cooler or heater to my terrarium.)

    the lil sib i grew for awhile was quite undemanding. night time lows of 12-18C were normal, lil higher wasnt uncommon. day time highs of 29Ci-sh were typical. good humidity, 75%ish and it did fine. i had been told they sit and pout abit after you first get them but mine never did. it grew like a champ while i had it.

    And it's still doing fine now that I have it. Like the rest of my Neps and the orchids too, it's been loving the cooler, wetter weather of early Fall. Some tendrils have buried themselves in the sphagnum and I'm waiting to see if pitchers come back out. Either that or it's actually a peanut plant.
