    Well, I've had it for under a year... It's gone from the one dying leaf to what you see above. If it could grow better than that... It'd surely be the fastest acclimating and growing nep I've had.

    Perhaps when I up the pot size.. I'll use something more airy for the surrounding media. I doubt I'm going to take the current media off of the roots though. I'll have to see what it looks like in there before I decide.

    I doubt you can get the current media off the roots. Like I said, this species has a huge root system.

    It is a faaaast nep. When I made cuttings, they rooted in 3 weeks (roots appeared at 2, but were way tiny).

    Andrew, I have all my vikings in LFS and perlite. Standing in 1" of water until the level drops totally before I top it up again. I treat them like N. mirabilis.

    But being in pure lowland conditions helps, I suppose. The humidity, the heat etc.

    Thanks Cindy, my conditions are VERY close to true lowland.. except winter, then I'm just a tad cooler.

    Hmm...then you'll just have to wait out. Some of my vikings take a while before pitchering. Oh, I also noticed that pitchering is seasonal because I grow them at my balcony. When the weather is cooler and gloomy, they lose nearly all their pitchers! They are at their best during the hottest months here.

    Here's my N. Viking. Believe it or not, it grows in straight highland conditions, down to the low 50s at night. It took a few months, and some encouragement from fertilizing, but once it decided it was home, it really took off. This grows right next to N. macrophylla!

    Hi Andrew,
    How about the light ? May I suggest a full day sunlight ?
