    You and me both! I was just looking yesterday at what I could move to make more room. The whole problem is that I can't get rid of things easily. I have some cuttings of N. reinwardtiana that my brother's dog chewed into near death over a year ago. The broken, chewed, and brown stems barely transmit enough water and nutrients to support a few tiny leaves on each of them. It's been over a year, and they are still TINY. They will never become big healthy plants; they are the Terry Shiavos of nepenthes. But I can't get rid of them. I have no room for more plants, but have a N. 'viking' from Trent, and a burb from Cook's on ebay on the way. Sigh.

    Meanwhile, my neps are all growing, and there's clearly no room for that many large plants. What am I going to do? I don't know. I'll figure something out.

    Here's how fast N. x Predator is. The previous photo was exactly one month ago today. Here's what it looks like this evening. That whole pitcher grew and opened:

    Ty:

    No problem, steal away! This topic is for everyone!

    rl & Caps:

    Just build more growspace! I'm almost finished with a 48"w x 26"d x 36"h tank, up from a 30"w x 12"d x 12"h. That's from 4320 sq. in. to 44928 sq. in.! (An alternative would be to send all your rarest, most expensive specimens to me!)

    Once again, lovely pics, Caps. I rather like the pitchers before they colour up, too.

    -D. Lybrand
    Check my growlist! Nothing currently available for trade...

    I think it needs to be N. truncata x lowii [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    What makes you think that Dominik? Its not a very old plant yet, so how could N. truncata peristome be fluted yet? Still should be moderately "normal" if truncata is a parent.

    Sry lybrand for stealing of your topic
    I have been growing mine outside in Atlanta all summer long so I would say it can take lowland conditions too. Pretty bomb proof in my experience.
