    oh ok. ive been on that routine to fertilize bi weekly, each payday is when i fertilize the plant with 30-10-10 orchid fertilizer, well all the plants. do you think thats where that increace in girth of the tendril came from? the stem closer to the roots in thin as well. it seems the fertilizer is making the stem grow thicker as well...

    lol we keep a lil padding in one of our checking accounts, mainly it gets used on stuff such as the recent Savage 99, she has made good buys on jewelry and such at auctions.

    not sure about the fertilizer thing, like i said its the exception rather than the rule with me. i do feed some of the pitchers freeze dried blood worms during the winter cause there isnt much for flies and such around.

    Rattler, I have several clones from Malesiana, and you have the same one as one of mine, which has a much more flared peristome which doesn't curl back, with the purple tinge to the leaves. The other clones are like fc's, tightly curled back peristome and generally green leaves. I don't know whether it's just variation within the species, or some remnant hybrid trait.

    There is a nice photo of the flared peristome variant in "Nepenthes of Sumatra...". I believe I have the same plant as rattler_mt. Right now my plant is young so the peristome is still curled back. The leaves of mine also have a purple tinge. fc's clone is most likely the same, but the peristome isn't flared out yet.

    I found an old photo of rattlers plant when it was younger and the peristome was curled back

    your right Brian, mine is just getting a more flared peristrome with the larger pitchers. it still curls back quite a bit after a few weeks on the larger pitchers. yah gotta remember as of Saturday the pitcher was still completely unopened, that peristrome is still on the move
