    Arrow winter

    I'm pretty sure it's normal, but since i'm very protective of my plants, i thought i would post this.

    i noticed on all of my Nepenthes, they have either produced pitchers that are getting smaller and smaller with shortend life or the pitcher bud will just hang there and will not inflate at all. Also the leaves seem to be getting smaller. I'm about 85% sure it's just because of winter with cooler temps and lower light levers, but i just want to double check Thanks!

    How do you light a really large nep though? High powered lights? I take it the regular shop lights won't cut it.

    They grow just fine like this!



    Seriously, just provide artificial lighting, `12 hours of light per day and keep the temps around 80.
