    neps, elgecko has a strange rift in space/time where he grows his nepenthes. It's not a temporary thing. It's legit. It's best not to ask questions.

    But for the rest of us, listen to neps!

    I like how Elgecko's magic window has become this untouchable, indescribable...thing. Haha!

    Elgecko's magic window is tantamount to Oprah. And her bookclub. No one understands it. No one questions it.

    It just...IS.

    lol! its just insane how all kinds of neps...lowland, highland....especially the finicky...the dreaded hard neps all grow in a similar media with simple houseplant conditions. Either that...or he has a magic portion that makes them more adpatable

    Not that I am knocking El Gecko but his aristolochioides is still very small (look at the pics) and so what Neps says is still very probable. Once Gecko's plant gets larger he might find it getting pissy and declineing. We shall have to wait and see before we make a full on call. As Neps points out, how many of us can claim to have been growing this species for 10 years like he has?

    It is true that my plant is still small. Only time will tell if it continues to like the conditions when it gets larger.
    Also the temps I posted are my summer temps that the house experiences. In the winter the nights are around 64-65 degrees, which is better for highlanders, but still could be a several degrees colder.
