    My new Globosa/Viking

    I received this globosa a couple of days ago.
    I planted it in a very fast draining mix.
    My lowland mini greenhouse gets to 90F day 68F night with 60% humidity day 85% night.
    I know it's not optimal but I'm hoping that the nep will adapt.

    View outside right now.

    peace,

    Nice looking plant! Looks just like Western NY right now! Is this lowland or highland plant? I see perlite and LFS. What else is in there?

    It's a lowlander.

    Do you know what grade it is, zero? It's got quite a waist, but it's so young that that doesn't really necessarily mean anything.

    jimscott, it's snowing even harder right now than when the pic was taken a few hours ago!
    I LOVE New England springs, I never know what kind of weather I will wake up too.
    Globosa/viking is a very lowland plant, it grows at near sea level on an island or two, as far as I know.
    the substrate is lfs, pearlite, vermiculite, and orchid mix (fir bark, arcillite(some sorta puffed ceramic) , and charcoal). very fast draining mix, dries out fast too.
    JLAP, I don't know what grade, but I don't think it's grade A.
    even this small, it looks like it has a waist and just the wings have color.
    It's a great nep either way.
    Peace,
    Zero

    The mix shouldn't dry out fast, this plant likes it wet (It goes on an island...)
    Its not a grade A, but unless you live in thailand grading pretty much doesnt matter anyway.
    Color has nothing to do with grade.

    That plant is interesting because the pitchers are smaller in relation to the leaves than i have seen in a globosa....but then again it looks like its still a seedling.

    Dang, i tell everyone not to use LFS and no one listens to me

    Grading is VERY important to me. A grade A just looks better than a grade B, and a B looks better than a C.

    no no, fast DRAINING

    I see the point in grading in a term of differentiation, but I cannot justify spending more on a grade A vs. grade C. I like them all...but i mean, look at my growlist...I'm addicted to a genus :/
