    nice pictures as always.

    Youre aristo is showing a interesting growth habit. What do you think is making it grow in such a fashion?


    Edit: After staring at your aristo for a bit longer it does appear it has increased in size in comparison to the leaves low down on its rossette. Are you observing that its newer slightly bigger leaves from the older ones are increasing with each new leaf but have sort of met a size limit in each new leaf?

I really loved the truncata x ventricosa and the aristo!!! Those plants are by far the greatest I have seen!

    Thanks everyone for the comments!

    rattler: that's about when I got mine, so they're probably the same clone. I don't know how many there are floating around, but this one seems to have darker pitchers than a lot of the pictures I've seen.

    Walter: Yeah, I've considered it might be accurate, but there really is no sign of the white band. Also, from what I understand, maxima var. curtisii was thought to be the hybrid before they decided it's just a variety of maxima. I misspoke a bit when I say it was "sold" to me; I won it in a raffle as a pitcherless cutting at a BACPS meeting. At the same meeting, I got the lowii x ventricosa pictured above, but it was labeled burkeii x villosa (also a pitcherless cutting) so I have reason to doubt the accuracy of the labels from this batch.

    NickZ123: this is an older picture, but it shows pretty much the way it is. It's a simple setup, just wire racks with cheap fluorescent tubes. The rack on the upper left now has T5 fluorescent tubes, and it's a lot brighter so I use it for the taller neps. The grow room is on my basement level, so it stays cool there, and we have good humidity in general in San Francisco, so I don't use terrariums or tanks at all.


    dlybrand,
    Everyone asks me that! LOL! I found the mastersiana at tristanscps in Hawaii, but they don't often have it, and they're not that great at quick responses to email, so good luck!

    Lam_wn: I don't really use a tray system. Some of the pots sit in a tray but it's just for the water that runs through the pots; they never sit in standing water. I water them about every other day. The humidity usually stays in the 60-80% range due to our naturally cool humid air. If we have a really dry spell, I just put an ultrasonic humidifier in the middle of the room, but that's only a couple times a year.

    Flipside: I don't know why the aristo doesn't get bigger. It SLOWLY gets bigger on average, but the biggest leaf was about five leaves ago. At least it makes pitchers on each one, and they last a long time. I decided it's hungry for some nutrients so I crammed a koi pellet into a couple of the pitchers. They're hard to feed with those little pitcher openings!

    I only feed the plants every couple of months, and I use dried crickets and koi pellets. Never any fertilizer; that scares me too much.

    Hi Capslock!

    Your setup looks great. I liked the hybrids containing lowii but all plants look very healthy. Fertilizing is no miracle thing. If you want to try it, just put some fluid fertilizer in your water.

    Without fertilizer I would never had grown this plant from seeds so fast:

    And I used VERY few Osmocote pearls...a friend used more, now his plants is more than 25 cm in diameter, from the same seed batch (its pure N. alata).

    Excellent plants, as usual. The N. bongso looks like the plant formerly known as N. carunculata var. "robusta". I hope so, because it's the one that I'm going to get.

    Has everyone seen Capslocks gallery? http://www.cpforums.org/gallery/Capslocks-Plants

    I'm still dizzy after looking at it 4 weeks ago!

    Hallo JanW!
    Nice post yours!
    You have to know that I am slowing approaching to osmocote in perls like you already do.
    The problem is that I have to give often water from the top, right? This to avoid concentration of Osmocote in terrain.Is this right?
    Anyway...the best fertilizer I never heard about should be MIRACID...but it seems not more avaiable around....
    Fine fine fine.Continue testing and to make new experiments with and without fertilizer.
    See yah

    How long did it take for the pitchers on the lowii x truncata to redden up for you?
