    I just purchased a nepenthes "Miranda" today at a local nursery and I was wondering what specific cultivation environment that they prefer. Please let me know because I really like this nep and I don't want to lose it.

    Also I was wondering what it is a hybrid of?

    I grow mine hanging over the kitchen sink during the winter. In spring, I put it outside and leave it there 'til temps start dropping into the 40's in the fall. Don't let it dry out too much or it won't pitcher. Mine only pitchers when it's outside, never in the window.

    The cross is ({northiana x maxima} x maxima).
    Check my growlist! Nothing currently available for trade...

    Does it need to be misted?
    What are the normal temps that it likes?



    I knew that they had some N. maxima in them

    what do the upper pitchers look like?


    I can tell that they get pretty BIG, because whenever I bought it today it had a 12" pitcher on it, but sadly on the way home it and another got pulverized by a gargoyle falling on it.

    like this.
    the left ones are more normal than the right ones.

    PS. not only do the pitchers get big but the leaves get huge too! Adnedarn's plant has huge leaves...i would say the plant is a little more than 2ft across not including pitchers and tendrils
