    What's missing for a talangensis to pitcher?

    Hi guys,

    I have got my talangensis in october 2007. Yet, as of now I haven't got a single pitcher on it. The growth is absolutely healthy. Tendrils extend. Leaves are all same size or getting bigger by little.

    BTW...the top crown of 5 leaves has been grown in my conditions since I got it.



    Condtions:

    Humidity: 65% - 85%
    Temp: 60-65F night | 85F day
    Lighting: enough to make my ramispina, mira right beside this pot pitcher and thrive.

    It has been growing quite steadily at the pace that has been approved by successful growers of this species. It looks pretty healthy in its foliage. However..... all the 4 leaves that have formed since tis arrival in october unpotted have buried themself in my layer of live LFS and are just sitting there without inflation. Can someone please shed light on this issue for me?

    Now this species has been notorious for sitting there and doing absolutely nothing for a while. It is also supposedly among the plants that really resents repotting.

    thanks,

    V

    I agree. I don't know if you turn them off for pics or something, but it always looks dark. My chamber is lit up like christmas. I have lights every 12 or so inches.

    no...I don't turn off light for the pics. However, I do move away a T12 2 foot fixture when I have to open the enclousure and get to the plants. So yeah! some light might be "missing" (you can say) from the pics compared to what the plant grows with.

    But also...for the rajah..when there wasn't enough light...the tendrils aborted without lengthening and just fried up after growing a couple of cm. However, once I added the light....the tendrils started developing. SO based on that isn't the talang getting "OK" light considering the tendrils are dropping and actually burying themselves in the moss?

    Damn! lol! I have no room or resources to get more light for this "mis-sized" setup. lol!

    woah! nice one Alex. Any pics dude?

    Varun,

    there is definitely a diff between the internodes on yours compared to mine...

    I'm not sure but wouldn't that be confirmation of lighting diffs... I know one thing, the more light I give mine the happier it seems, its a greedy lil light ho

    can you move it closer to your bulbs?

    Possibly needs more of a temp drop at night. My rajah would not pitcher til I got temps into the 50-55F range at night. Do not have a talangensis, but may be a possibility if your particular plant is from a higher altitude. Just a thought.
