    FC-Well some can grow slow...er. Not every hybrid will grow somewhat quick. Its like saying species are all slow growers...kinda [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] . Anyways the point is that hybrids have hybrid vigor but whats vigorous for for one hybrid could be slow to another.Wpah that took a lot.

    In my experience a clone of truncata x veitchii (not sure which one) has been sadistically slow.

    One of my fastest growing and pitchering species is N. spathulata. I don't grow N. thorelii x aristolochiodes (wish I did), but another N. thorelli hybrid comes to mind: N. thorelii x xtrusmadiensis. I've only had it a few months, but it's growing quickly and pitchers are produced freely and last a long time.

    Not a species, but yeah I think ventrata in most conditions will grow like rabbits on speed. Pitchers included. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    My ventricosa (possibly ventrata) puts out a new pitcher every week and each pitcher is a few centimeters bigger then the last.

    For speed, I have to say that Miranda, Ventrata are the fastest in my collection. Ise de France is not far behind.

    My northiana is positively in stasis. I've had it over a year, and it's put out three leaves, with a 1" increase in diameter. Bah. Bongso is also pretty slow.

    Will note that when I getting around to acquiring a 'Ile de France'. Such a gorgeous plant, such a fast grower! Miranda too.

    Your gotta have high humidity and lowland conditions for Northiana. Oh yeah forgot to add, if you look at a merriliana the wrong way it tries to go into coma. Mine did and I'm still trying to revive it.

    Interesting point on the merris. They do slow down at the drop of a hat - but then REFUSE to die....At least mine did. It got a pretty bad scale infection, which I didn't notice for a while because it was at the back, and looked like death warmed over when I finally treated it. It has recovered just fine, even produced new basal shoots, and looks healthy as ever. It's first pitchers since "the fall" are inflating, and already have a nice red color.
