    Does anyone have any experience growing these plants? I'm sure a bunch of you do, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I grow N. ramispina with my other highlanders and it seems to be one of the faster-growing and happier of my plants. I think you'll have no problem with it whatsoever.

    Ditto for N. copelandii. It grows very quickly under intermediate/highland coditions.

    Thanks guys. Both plants I'm getting from Cook's Carnivorous Plants and supposedly they have a 4 inch leaf span. I'll have to post pictures once I get them potted up next week.

    Any specific soil mixes you guys would recommend?

    Hahaha, what a coincidence! You'll have to post a picture of yours once you get it.

    Yes I was thinking the same thing and how unusual we both ordered the same plants from the same grower, at the same time! Very strange!

    I use my normal nep mix. Half LFS and half chunky bits like orchid bark, pumice, charcoal, coco chips...
