    Thumbs up

    ok i have noticed somthing on my ventrata with two of my proto-pitchers. on one that did not drop down, the spur was just one spike and the thing its self was a dark color from the beginning. however on my second one which is two leaves up, the spur is split into 3 with the middle one being larger and the p-p is a lighter color. i have also noticed the whole tendril is turning counter clockwise on this one. later i will see what effect this has on it. in the meantime has anyone experienced this and gotten pitchers?

    What? What is p-p?

    I have also noticed that you can sometimes tell when a tendril is not going to make a pitcher. Usually it just doesn't elongate. If the tendril grows out, it almost always makes a pitcher.

    The higher your humidity along with bright lighting the better chances the spur will become a hook and inflate. If a sudden temperature or humidity drop occurs it can knock a developing pitcher out of synch and it will stop inflating and dry up. Keeping your conditions constant (and keeping those fingers off the plants) will allow them to develop to their full potential.

    I have a habit of touching the pitchers, sticking fingers in places I'm not suppose to be touching [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I know, I know! It's hard to stop playing with them, picking them up and inspecting every inch of the plant and the pot and the soil... I'm positive everyone does that at first, I know I did as well! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    If you can cut your handling down to once every week or two when you flush the soil with water they will have more time to settle. Try and be sure you put them back in the same place each time you take them out to water. The terrarium/growing area may look the same in regards to being evenly lit to you and me but the plants know if they've been shuffled around especially under flourescents which change in intensity from the middle (brightest) to the end of the bulb (dimmest).

    Have fun! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
