    here are some new pics of my nepenthes highland. a few of them adapted fast but there are some that have acclimated very slowly...
    this ventricosa pitcher wasnt even there when i got it. has been growing outside all this time in full sun.


    i dont know if the sun was the cause of this but looks really really nice. spectabilis x veitchii. this pitcher just opend when i got it. i have a pic of the other pitchers but not as nice as the obvious.

    heres the whole plant. spectabilis x veitchii


    heres the one that has taken a beating since i got it. it has lost all of the 3 pitchers and hasnt produced any since the last 2 leaves. this new one looks promising and the tendril looks healthy too. the waxy coat i think is pretty obvious to me. i cant wait to see it pitcher.

    here is an alata luzon that i acquired from rubra. the leaves is what i immediatly looked at when i saw it. i tend to have trouble acclimating nepenthes that have soft leaves. you can "see" the
    soft leaves

    I like the color change on the spectabilis x veitchii. I recently received one and I'm excited to see how the pitchers develop.

    I notice growth in my plants as soon as I pot them up, but it usually takes about 2-3 months for a new pitcher to form. The only plant that is really taking it's time is N. tentaculata, which also has "soft" leaves. All of the pitchers died within 24 hrs, and then the plant sat and did nothing for a whole month. Finally the new leaves are unfolding, but no indication pitchers yet.

    eh... somewhat for now.:blues:
    this is my first "winter" for all my nepenthes and i think we may be getting some light frost but i really cant do anything about that because thats they only place they can stay is outside. i hope spring all of them may show some major improvement and acclimate by then for sure......:blues:

    Well you might want to at least try and do something about it. 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.
