    Here's a quick shot of the entire plant. It's a relatively small plant in a 4" pot. That's the magic of the macro shot... :-)

    Beautiful! Thanks for the full-plant shot.

    What are your conditions?

    My Nepenthes are on a metro shelf in front of a large NE facing window. I'm using a pair of 32w daylight T8's with a timer set for 16 hour photoperiods, with the bulbs about 6" away from the soil surface. I also hung a sheet of reflective material on the side of the shelf opposite the window.

    Temps are whatever it is in the house. The lights add a noticeable amount of warmth during the day, and being near a large window adds a little extra cooling at night. These days, that comes out to low 70's during the day, low 60's at night. My Nepenthes are watered twice a week with RO/DI water and fed mealworms once a week.

    Damn. I've been putting off ordering anything and this was one plant that I was going back and forth with...until seeing your freakin' pics. So yes, I caved and caved instantly and ordered one! Nice work...doubt mine will do that well but you've given me hope with your average house conditions. Just gorgeous.

    Nice colors on that bad boy. I'm wondering if the leaves always that color, is that good? Here is a shot of mine (it's only made one small nice pitcher for me) I thought I might be watering it to much let me know what you think (over water or thats a good color)?
