Would be ashame to damage or even loose some of all these new plants you've been getting lately. I think the low humidity has alot to do with your "slow" acclimation. Just think of a way to raise the humidity around the plants. I think your plants are on your balony in your apartment? Why not constuct a small enclosure out of some 2x4's and some 6mm green house film to try and protect the plants from a harsh winter.
    thanks for the concern [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    but i really dont like enclosures myself so i feel like enclosing my nepenthes would be wrong, like wouldnt letting them grow where they want agaisnt 4 sides( an enclosure such as a growth chamber or a green house not includind the top or the bottom).
    anyways, i am limited on space as of right now and the most recent thing i just did was to place i think 11 nepenthes under shade cloth, well atleast the lowlanders that i have outside and the smaller highlanders. the most recent nepenthes are the ones to go there first. the shade cloth altleast helps me with blocking the wind some and that dreaded afternoon shade. so jess, at least now you dont have to worry about my plants being in full sun, im trying to stay away from that now with few exceptions.

    i could use steves method, to use terrariums for thoes small 3" plants till they grow to block off the wind and raise the humidy more. for the larger ones, i could use trays and fill them with water, sound better? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    it would be sad that i lost a plant to this but i have no choice but to grow them like this or not to grow them at all. its all about the space for me right now but till move to a better place, thing will change.
    btw havent lost one yet [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    a green house/chamber is wrong? LOL the accidental comedian

    If it grows lush healthy nepenthes, I'm all for it.

    Same here, just six weeks ago. In the beginning, I was reluctant to get it (I'm not really into those Rococo peristomes), but now the plant has produced its fifth gorgeous pitcher, and what I REALLY love about this hybrid is the overall orange hue the entire plant gives off, what with the reddish leaves, orange pitchers and all. Kinda paints its whole surroundings in a pinkish-orange light...

    i was starting to think it was a bad thing but i guess not. i received mine with green leaves and now they are turning reddish. mine does have a more pinkish color instead of orange though

    Question

    here are some of the plants that i have outside that have produced sideshoots.

    ventricosa red with two basals


    sanguinea that the tip died and two new growth points have emerged


    same sanguinea but i never expected to see this. it came from deep beneath the lfs


    and is this a neactar bar for ants? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
