    Medusa loves moss, pics inside

    I finally got my Medusa to pitcher. I've never had a fussier Nepenthes but looks like she's finally settling into her mossy home and digging her tendrils down into the Sphagnum.

    Hi, love your "Medusa". I have a "Medusa" also but has not produced pitcters yet. It is also doing the same thing with tendrils growing into moss/producing plenty of leaves, no pitchers yet. Taking a long time to settle in; am growing in lowland conditions due to the "Belli" influence. Needs higher temps maybe, seems to be doing better. Humidity always greater than 75% and higher at night. By the way, nice looking sphagnum moss. Is it just top dressing or completely planted with? Looks real good.

    I gave up on Medusa and traded it and it's cutting for two Sarracenia .

    Very nice though.

    Thanks for the compliment on the sphagnum. It's in straight dead LFS with a layer of live LFS on the top. I can't see the point in planting in all live LFS because everything under the top layer is going to die anyway because light can't get to it.

    I actually have a whole gallon of sphagnum in the NASC auction right now. Wink Wink.

    N. Medusa takes a LONG time to acclimatise. I got mine last April and it only produced its first pitcher this March! Recently, the temperature went up to 90F and RH was about 55%-75%...but here's the second pitcher it produced in mid-air.
