    N. fusca, flared peristome and triangular leaves no browning of pitchers



    N. macfarlanei no browning of pitchers



    N. macrovulgaris some browning of pitchers



    N. merrilliana browning of most pitchers



    Interestingly, the ones with browning pitchers are lowland or intermediate.

    Anyone has experience with N. macrovulgaris or N. fusca? I read that these plants can be difficult to grow.

    Hi Cindy

    Nice plants, love the ephipiata, wis mine was already that big...
    I don't have any experience with meriliana or fusca, but I was told that fusca schouldn't give any problems, it's a rather easy plant ( Well my sources could be wrong but I don't think so )

    Nice plants and nice pics Cindy. I hope they grow well for you.

    Look in pet stores where they have the reptile bedding for cocochips.
