    Ok, first of all: *drools*

    Second of all: Now I need one of those Neps.

    Third of all: How do you make your pictures look so cool?

    Ok, and now for a mature campanulata (been posted before, I know, I know). You can see from the ruler in the one picture that this plant, even though mature, really isn't all that big.

    Very cool! I've only seen very few pics of this plant before, thanks for sharing! From a top view like that, the pitchers remind me of Heliamphora pitchers.

    Hello Schloaty!
    Time to update your pics,ehehe! They are old now!
    Is your plant dead in the meantime that you want not to show us the new ones?
    Anyway...here are the updated pics of my 2 Nep. Campanulata.
    They are in 2 differents substates.
    The first on is made of perlite and moss and the second one with perlite,moss and 50% of Coconuts pieces.
    I don't know but untill now I am not so sadisfyed about them.
    Maybe it is only question of time. Maybe they still need more light even Christian Klein told me that she also grow in light shading conditions?
    From my point of view campanulata is a slow grower. And for you all?
    My conditions are those ones :
    Daylight with 25 Celcius and 65% Humidity
    Night with 18 Celcius and 80% Humidity
    See yah!

    Mr. Aga....You wound me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Interesting tidbit about campanulata (and merrilliana & bicalcarata as well, since they're in the same tank) - they don't require the rediculous humidity that I thought they did. Just today I put a thermometer/hydrometer in the lowland tank. To my astonishment, the daytime humidity was only 51%!!! I assume that the night humidity went up a little, but not too much. Despite this, my campanulata has been thriving. I have since reduced the size of the openning at the top to raise the humidity, since the rest of the plants weren't doing as well, accept for, surprisingly, the merri. The bical I mentioned does grow & pitcher, but not as well as I'd like...and forget about the northiana.

    Anyway, it just goes to show you that conventional wisdom must be constantly questioned! The more I grow, the more I think that the secret to healthy plants is good lighting over good humidity (within reason, of course).

    To address Mr Aga about campanulatas being slow: I'd say they're more small than slow. They may seems slow because they don't get big all that quickly - but they don't get all that big, period. Mine puts out a new leaf & pitcher about every 6-7 weeks or so. Not a speed deamon, but no slouch, either. I would advise you try to feed yours little, tiny meals. Fruit flies or something - bugs too big will kill the rather fragile pitchers, but the plant definatly responds to food. Also increase your light (speaking from the point of view of artificial light. I haven't ever grown it using sunlight, just flourescents).
