    OK, so I've put a N. khasiana outdoors in hopes that its cold-tolerance will allow it to grow here in SF. It's been a few weeks, and it seems pretty happy. We've had a rare hot and sunny spell, though, and the plant has a nice red flush: (note the fly on the peristome of one of them.)



    The fly got me to thinking about what's actually fallen in the pitcher (that fly flew away.) Sure enough, it has a pretty full belly:

    I find it amazing how effective pitcher plants and VFT's can be, especially when one isn't watching.

    Hey, I think that one pitcher needs rotated and some sun screen. That looks painful, but pretty.

    Santos, I got it at Costco a long time ago, but I'm just using the extra shelf here, suspended between two big pots.

    Yeah, that sunburn looks like it wouls hurt! But the plant seems to not mind, as the leaves are thick and healthy and none of the pitchers have died.
