    Shrinking ventricosa 'red'

    I'm finding this really odd. Every leaf was getting smaller and smaller. I remember that someone posted a thread on how his/her nep grown in a tank (or I think growlights) was smaller than the nep that was grown outside. Here's what's happening. So far, every leaf it's made for me has a pitcher in the making.



    Now see how those leaves compare in size.

    It could be that you are giving it more light than wherever it was before. More light = less need for large green leaves to photosynthesize.

    No (unless its causing burning of course).

    It's not a bad thing. Leaf size and light amount I suppose could be somehow proportional. More light = smaller leaves, less light = bigger leaves. Of course, there is an extreme on either side of the spectrum that is unhealthy, but you'll be able to tell long before then!

    For one thing, it's actually one of the countless N. ventrata forms, and you might want to transfer it into pure LFS for a while, and reduce the light intensity for a while, and it should be fine. - Rich
    No, I'm not suffering from insanity! ... rather enjoying it, actually!

    Why? It's seems fine and I can't really reduce light intensity...
