    Schloaty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If I would be a girl I would kiss you!
    Really! Man...really nice campanulata plants!!!!
    I have also received one...(or better 2 because I had fear for its dead) of campanulata from Christian Klein! ( when I went to Praga to the EEE carnivorous meeting).
    His clones are with RED peristome if this can help you. I will post a pic of its campanulata when it arrived me 2 months ago!
    Listen...I love so much this plants that I took 2 in case of some problems...
    I have some questions:
    1) Do this plant need light or she like light shadowing?
    2) What are your cultivation tips for this plant?
    Someone say that this plant is a lowland and some say highland....which one is the true? What are your temperatures?
    3) Campanulata is a humidity demanding nepenthes like ampullaria and bicalcarata or could it grow close to a window in lowland conditions temperatures? What are the values of your humidity?
    Please tell me more than possible.I simply love this plant.
    Bye!

    LOL... ok, ok,....how bout rare? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    It's very nice, but not one of a kind I'm afraid. I have seen one at a california carnivores, and neps has also posted pics of one that looks very similar. The thing that catches my eye, other than the color, is the wings. I bet those off shoots will fetch a fair price too!
    Very nice Sir!

    HAR! Don't let my wife hear you say the first part! LOL!

    1) Well, mine seems to like being about 6" (15 cm?) under the lights I use (65 watt compact fluorecent - roughly 8600 lumens or so, I think). So it does like high light. I also successfully grew it in an east-facing window that only got a little morning light (trees in the way), and then just ambient light thereafter. I also had three regular 4' twin flurescent tubes over the tank at that time.
    2) I'm growing it as a true lowlander (in with the bicalcarata). Though I've heard they do just as well in an intermediate set up, I've never tried it. I've never heard of it being grown as a highlander.
    3) I'm fairly certain it's humidity-sensetive...at least the pitchers. They're not very sturdy. However, I've never experimented with it outside the tank. I'd say the humidity stays above 75% all the time...Usually over 80%. I do have the top only about 90% covered so fresh air can circulate in....I think that is helpfull.


    All in all, I have a very easy time with it. I mean, it's been more dependable for me even then my gracilis and my raflesiana! Maybe I just got blessed with a really hearty individual plant, I don't know.

    Hello Schloaty,
    Thanks for the detailed answer.
    Ok...pratically the most important thing that Campanulata asks is high humidity...ok..ok!
    Is also like ampullaria...that female was really not caring of the lot of light my girlfriend was giving to it.
    She was demanding desperately of some more humidity and I have not noticed it at first times.
    Ok,so let's hope....for the future.I have taken 2 Campanulata and I will give them 2 similar conditions.
    One Campanulata is in : 60% Coconuts bark 30 % perlite and 10% peat torf.
    The second one bigger is in : 10% Pine bark, 40 % perlite and 50% peat torf.
    Last question,in what substrate do you cultivate them?
    FIne,let's go on and let's win! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    If I can later I will post a photo in this forum!
    BYe!
