    Dear Schloaty,
    I love to joke! Thanks for the additional infos about keeping your very cuties campanulata!
    Last question : Christian Klein told me also not to keep soil too wet of campanulata .....could it be the reason of my slow growing? They are pitchering, so light and humidy is at least ok.I will continue to study them....
    My gf has bicalcarata and she is in home without terrarium. it grows really fine....I really could not believe it! Really strange for a bicalcarata: she does not ask for high levels of humidity ( at least to my gf,ehehe).
    Maybe I will post also a pic of this beauty.
    See yah!

    I love my N. campanulata, that's why the picture's so cool. Love it enough to create the montage. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Schloaty and Mr Aga, I am very encouraged by your experiences. The plant took two months to put out its first pitcher after it arrived. Then it grew very well until it flowered at about 3" across. The flowering took place in February last year. And only now is it recovering from that. It was a LONG wait for me.

    Currently, it is under lights on my shelf. The humidity is 75-80% and above 80F. In sphagnum moss/perlite mix and watered only when the pot feels light. Did you guys notice that N. campanulata loves sending out basal as well as lateral shoots? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Cindy, speaking of basal shoots, look a little closer at my second pic, there. Also, I'm a bit surprised your flowered at a scant 3" across! Mine was at least 5" across when it first flowered (there is a bit of irony in my voice as I type that).

    MrAga, I hate to recommend against the Christian Klein, but I've had the exact opposite experience with campanulata with regards to water. Mine likes to be watered frequently and kept almost wet. I sometimes let it dry out a little (but only a little), but by and large it's rather moiste. This may have something to do with our chosen growth mediums, though - Mine is in LFS & orchid mix, about 2:1 ratio.

    Nice looking plants! I love N. campanulata. This summer I am going to get a few and try to grow them in a vertical postion in a special pot I am making. Hopefully it will recreate the cliffside habit that is seen in nature.

    Cindy,
    My campanulata that I have form the 19 September as not finished yet to develope its first pitcher!
    So..I think that your timing will be like mine!
    Schloaty,
    Ok,I will also change in order to follow your growing tips...even you didn't decide to post some new pictures,eheheh!
    I hope that campanulata will accelerate....it is really a little slow...
    See yah!

    Mr.Aga you should try growing it warmer. A little higher night temps.
    Need all the experience I can get...

    Tyfone,
    My home is incredibly cold in winter...I cannot fix manually this problem...( at least because I am living with my mother...).
    Anyway...it can be surprising...but Nepenthes campanulata is also cultivated in intermediate conditions... ( Ex : ask to Rob Cantley from Borneo Exotics ).
    Let's see anyway as soon it will finish to develop the first pitcher...

    Yes I know its cultivated on intermediate conditions.
    All I say is that it might speed up a little if you provide more warmth.
    But if you cant provide it then its a little hard [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
