    Recently, several people have asked me how my largest N. villosa is doing, so, while I was working with the plants today, I took a very hasty snapshot of it. It's a pretty poor image, with narrow depth of field, but the relative size and quality of the pitcher are apparent.

    As you can see, it is getting to an interesting stage where really all the characteristics of the adult plant are visible. It's not quite fully grown yet, but I'm hopeful that perhaps in the next year or two it will flower.

    woah....That is amazing! Great growing, Neps. What a fantastic specimin. Also, I think your self-critisism of the image quality is un-warranted. Sure, it's not going to make National Geographic, but it's still pretty darn good.

    Wow, that's a great plant neps! How cold do you get it at night? I have a couple tiny villosas that see about 55 degrees overnight, and they seem happy now, but I want them to grow up like yours!

    Thanks! Typically, overnight lows are around 3 or 4 C (37 to 39 F). BTW, my experience supports your observation that small specimens of this species are tolerant of warmer nights.

    Jeff,

    Very impressive, as usual. Did you grow that plant from seed? And how old is it now?

    I'd love to know whether that villosa of Peter D'Amato's is still alive.

    It certainly makes a contrast to my little 3 month old villosa seedlings...

    neps,
    Great job. You've obviously done your homework, providing N. villosa with the conditions it needs to thrive. Beautiful pitcher - thanks for sharing the image.
