    Very nice! I actually have some plants on the way from Cook's as well. In fact, one of them is a N. ampullaria like yours!

    What size pots did you put them in?

    Good luck with N. macfarlanei, I find it to be a sporadic pitcher producer.

    Hmmmm.... I haven't had that problem - my macfarlenei is slow, but steady. Sometimes I see a pitcher produced a little smaller than the last, but in the last 6 months or so there haven't been any actual breaks in production.

    Nice plants, but seems like you're keeping them too wet, don't waterlog them and empty the trays.
    keep them damp but not wet.

    yeah hes right or try to keep the water level about 1/4"- 1/2" depending on the size pot you use. also the trick is not to pot the plant so deep into the pot to prevent root rot when using the "tray method"...

    Personally I would take all the water out of the tray asap.

    I have a Nep. on my windowsill that is in a tray. It is just there to catch excess water. The water doesn't remain for more than a day after watering and I don't water again until the potting mix is just damp. Perpetually sitting Nepenthes in water will frequently lead to root rot/plant death.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
