    Odds and Ends

    My first N. northiana pitcher! I have never been more proud of any other pitcher than this very ordinary-looking juvenile one. Well, perhaps this species can be taken off the "difficult-to-grow" list.



    This N. rafflesiana 'alata' is growing in pure perlite with tap water. It was a cutting left to root but it produced a pitcher! The colour isn't that great yet but I think this is not too bad for a plant grown in such a manner. It is now producing its second pitcher and I am wondering whether I should pot it up soon.



    N. x hookeriana - This plant produces pitchers with bright red peristome which later turns into reddish black. I also like its flat tendril.

    The latest pitcher




    The previous pitcher

    They are gorgeous. What are the conditions in which they grow?

    They are all grown under T5 lights at my balcony. Humidity is about 50%-70% and temperature is 77F-90F. Very hot, typical lowland conditions.

    Thanks for sharing, Cindy. Do you normally root Nepenthes in solid perlite? Or was this just one of those things?

    Zomg, They're beautiful! *steals them* jk

    Anyways, I don't think you should pot it up if it's pitchering beautifully in just perlite.
