    wow steve, your one good nep grower!! if my calculations are correct, it took about 9 months for that n. talangenisis to bounce back from the state when i had it to this nice happy plant.

    It probably would have bounced back faster, but everything slows down in the winter here. In a couple months this could be a beast.

    Here's a pic of the argentii pitcher I got from you. It is pretty small.


    The ramispina is doing well, too.

    My N. talangensis (from Tony) has been growing along fine for about 2 years but NEVER made a pitcher! I don't understand it. Plants around pitcher (hamata, burbidgeae, aristolochia) but never any pitchers from this one (or the N. macfarlanei come to think of it). Any ideas?

    Temps: days 65-80*F / nights 40-55*F (year round variation)
    Humidity: 70-90% with constant air circulation
    Light: 240 W Flourescents
    Misting daily (as I water the mounted orchids)
    Watering via Soil flushes 1-2 times a week depending upon temps
    re-Potted at least twice in the time I've had them

    Maybe they don't like perfect conditions. Mine grows outside and gets a little direct sun.
    Temps: days 65-90*F / nights 40-65*F (year round variation)
    Humidity: 20-90% with constant air circulation
    Light: Some direct morning sun, afternoon under shade cloth
    Misting: maybe 2x/week
    Watering via Soil flushes 2-3 times a week depending upon temps with liquid seaweed, super-thrive and EM-1 in RO water
    Never repotted

    How "hard" is this species to grow?

    Hi Swords:

    I have not seen your posts for a long while. How is life treating you?
    My gut feeling is that talangensis like more shade rather than more light?

    Just try it and see what happens

    Gus
