    My N. campanulata grows quite well doubling roughly its size in abaout one year (got it as small seedling at the EEE in Prague from Wistuba). The compost is 100 % pure LFS and the plant gets foliar feed about once per month. The LFS is well drained and the temperatures are quite low, because this plant grows together with my highland plants.

    Here are my 2 campanulatas that are treated as lowland.
    The first, more little, is in coconuts chips, peat moss and perlite :



    The second one, bigger plant, is in peat moss and perlite.



    Must I kill myself?
    I really am beginning to think about that campanulata should have roots only in pure spaghnum....as you can see my campanulatas are not great.
    The continue to grow as little.
    I am keeping them the whole summer in my terrarium that now has temperatures of 29 celsius during the night with 80% humidity and 31 celsius during neon on with 60% humidity.
    Man!

    Oh, my camp is a champ.
    My conditions are:

    Medium: LFS & Coarse orchid mix (about 2:1)
    temps: low 80's day, high 60's night (intermediate - lowland)
    light: 8" from a 65 watt & twin 40 watters (quite high) about 14 or 15 hours/day
    humidity: 50's day, 70's night was the same as high 70 day and high 80's night

    It's flowered twice, and the pitchers last fairly long (I don't feed them too much).

    Forgot to mention the watering -

    It's in a large pot with one of those attached trays. I give it a good watering and wait until the top layer is dry (since it's in a tank, that's usually at least week, sometimes over two weeks) before watering again.

    I think you guys having trouble are growing it a too wet all the time. My experience shows they like to be soaked, then dry out a bit.

    LFS here as well. I water it from the top about once a week but it doesn't really sit in water. Humidity is probably about 80% with temps ranging from maybe 65 - 85 degrees. I just got mine a few months ago as a TC seedling and its taking off. My N. bicalcarata is thriving in the same conditions.
