    Wow, I didn't that that was N. ventrata! You don't see many N. bellii, especially decent sized N. bellii. Good work!


    Give that hybrid more light and it'll turn a nice bronze.

    Thanks the one from you is pitchering well. I don't think the one you pointed out is though... May be too much light or something I'll have to look closer when I get back there...

    I'd be very surprised if light caused a nep NOT to pitcher, since light is generally what induces pitchers...

    Well, I don't know... it hasn't pitchered in quite some time. And I think the color of the leaves is proof it's getting "enough" light... I'm heading to the g/h now. I'll try to remember a better picture. It may even be pitchering haha

    Garren: im not a newbie. get off my back...

    my raff(will get a pic up tomorrow maybe?) is about the diameter of my hand, fingertip to end of my palm. the pitchers that it came with died in a few hours because it was in open humidity for its first home. then from there it grew slow....like cold molassas slow. then as soon as i put it in my terrarium with higher humidity it started to make its pitcher. the pitcher is mainly pale whiteish with red spots and a neon green lid... typical form? im happy its finally doing something other than just sitting there.

    elgecko: if you see this, at what size did you introduce your raff to your conditions?

    Well, my plant looked better further away haha It apparently does produce pitchers on and off... The part that sucks, is the leaves die so quickly.. Is that normal for bellii? Or are mine just not living long enough for one reason or another? I should prolly move it to a bigger pot too. The first one is N. bellii the second is the bellii hibrid.

    I have a Bellii and its the only one that give problems, it looks like its doing good for a couple of weeks and then some of the leaves die and slow the grow on general for another couple of weeks... I will say its like the temperament on general of that variety of plants because the rest of the plants are growing really good (my rafflesiana grow super fast each new pitcher is at less 25% bigger than the last, the same for the ampullaria).

    N. Albomarginata, N. Ampullaria
    N. Bellii, N. Bicalcarata, N. Rafflesiana
    N. Sanguinea (Orange Pitcher), Cephalotus Follicularis

    I'm afraid the only way to solve that problem is to cut the top off and send it to me. Haha but seriously, the basals look fine, but the main vine does not. Often, when there are multiple basals, it drains the energy from the main vine which eventually dies (though the basals will live on. So if I were you I'd either take a cutting or separate a basal or two. Conversely, you could try to spray the plant with 50-100 ppm GA3 to halt leaf senescence. That probably won't help the plant in the long term, as I'm sure you'd have to do it a couple of times, and it might not even solve the problem w/ the main vine.
