let's see ..inermis is about 2 feet tall. I think your right on about the roots of macrophylla growing before it starts to grow, but if yours does not do something soon, I would check the roots, to see they are getting enough air. If I uproot a plant that has not grown, or is actuall shrinking, I usually find the roots clumped in a little wet ball... not good. I usually let all my plants pretty much dry out between waterings.
Yep I use fungicide. but it stuns the plants for a month, and they grow funny looking pitchers, so I try to limit to every 6 months or so.
Thanks guys, I'm glad you like em. I know I sure enjoy seeing all of yours!!
