    Don't know the clone - Andreas guessed it was probably 2A
    I have just bought confirmed plants of 2A and 16, so I should be able to compare and work it out in a year or so.
    Andreas has other clones in the pipeline.

    This plant was shipped to me in June 2005 looking like this


    Whole plant now (on the right/ jacquelinae on the left - also from Andreas)

    Yeah, what do you feed that plant?! That clone does resemble jacquelineae a bit. I don't think I've ever seen a Nepenthes go from out of the agar to that size in 1 year. Simply amazing.

    Thanks for the comments - I am very fond of both of these plants. Hoping for uppers on the spec. nov. next year

    All the plants I can get a cricket or two (or a leg for the small ones) in each pitcher, and every now and then a spray of dilute orchid fertiliser. Never anything in the media, and loads of flushing through with rainwater
    Media is a mix of LFS, rockwool, fine orchid bark, perlite, charcoal and a sprinkling of moss peat
    80% or more humidity, I try and keep light 10Klux or slightly above
    This is the temperature profile through a year and a bit.

    I got a 2A, 16, and a 'random clone' (I guess that's what you get for the unlabelled one). They haven't arrived yet. Did Andreas have pictures of his various clones so they can be identified?

    EDIT: didn't see that chart before. What do you have to monitor temps? Are those flucuations the night temp drops?
    Check my growlist! Nothing currently available for trade...
