    Here are some new pitchers from my collection. First, N. boschiana. What a plant! I think it could pass as a houseplant for the folliage alone. And now it's made it's first pitcher for me since I got it.

    The whole plant:


    And the first pitcher:


    Here's my little N. villosa, which got through our heatwave OK:


    Here's N. faizaliana:


    And finally, N. thorelii x TM, the first pitcher it's made for me:

    Dang you are going to need a new grow shelf for that N. boschiana!

    Impressive as always, Caps! I love the foliage size of your N. boschiana.

    Heatwave and SF... Not words I commonly associate. We've been feeling the heat 1.5 hours south of you too, though!

    Okay now Caps!! I want my Villosa to be like yours!!!! I have now stopped to doing the fridge at night and 75 to 80 during the day and humidity around 80% and it is still the tiniest little thing for a long time. The only plus so far is that it sprouted a new grouth point at soil leval. and that set of leaves seems to be growing better than the main plant.

    Give tip oh wise one.

    Jim, hahaha! Don't mistake my extreme close-up for a large pitcher! These things are very slow, especially when they're small. Patience is the key; don't expect anything very quickly. I'm growing in my basement, and it gets into the upper 50s/lower 60s at night during the hot part of the year. I'm hoping it's OK with that, and it seems to be so far. In winter, I get the proper low-50s or high 40s overnight. I'll refrain from giving too many tips until my biggest pitcher is over an inch and a half!

    That N. thorelli x N. x Trusmadiensis will be a showstopper when mature!
