    Last year i got a small tissue cultured n. campualata and put it in with the rest of my lowlands. It has very high humidity, medium light, semi-wet soil. But it doesn't do ANYTHING. It grew one leaf actually, but that's it. What should I do?

    got ya

    1. soil and potting: its in a tiny 2 inch pot with pure peat. (it came in here). The plant is 2 inches across.
    2. Light: Same light as my bicalcarata, which isn't low, but not extra bright either.
    3. Water: It sits in water.
    4. Humidity: very, very humid. at least 80%, probably higher.

    It used to have more light and less wet, but that didn't work so im making it more lowland, and this isn't working either. Any other specifics?

    OK here are my suggestions:
    More light. Almost full sun maybe 70% of sun, then water it overhead now and then and dont let it sit in water, move it into a bigger pot, at least 4-5inches, and u should slowly lower the humidity around it to about 50% to harden it off. Hope that helps

    better draining soil, more light, dont let it sit in water! that should solve most problems.

    The first N. campanulata in the US(back in June of 2000) arrived potted in 1:1 peat/perlite. I don't know if it is still potted in that, but it grew really well in that mix.

    Cheers,

    My campanulata really also grows bad..I am it is really slow...near slow as the lowii and also pitchers has really short life...why?
    My campanulata is in 70 % peat moss and 30 Perlite.
    When it has too much neon light the old leafes and also all the new ones became nearly red coloured. Then after 4 months now the leafes seems getting used to my strong light.
    It it continues to grow not good. I have seen much better in this forum.
    What could it be?
    I have to consider to use sphagnum? Or what?

    I remember reading somewhere that as soon as the pitchers get fed, they die. Cant remember where I read it though
