    Windowsill Growing

    This is a N. veitchii 'Bareo Highland' that I recieved in a trade. It has been growing steadily since it arrived in late September; it took no time at all to recover from barerooting and shipping.



    This pitcher was about 1" tall when I recieved the plant. It is inflating very nicely.



    This pitcher was the most recent one to open before the plant was shipped to me.







    An older, faded pitcher:



    A tendril that seems to be dropping and beginning to inflate:



    Growth tip:




    Now for my N. burbidgeae. It's ugly, because it's been burned while sitting outside in partial shade. Now it's on the windowsill, and it seems to be picking up the pace a little.



    N. Judith Finn:



    N. sanguinea:



    N. miranda basal:



    N. miranda inflating upper pitcher:



    Group shot:



    Thanks for looking!

    I am SOOOOOOO jealous of that veitchii I have been wanting one for sometime. If you don't mind me asking what did you trade for it?

    Oh almost forgot to ask is your burbidgeae potted in orchid bark and charcol? That is all I can see as far as soil goes from that pic.

    Thanks for the comments!

    @Capensis: Lol, I would be more jealous of the other Neps than the sanguinea!

    @Goofzilla: Thanks! Right now it's y favorite plant, because it seems to be a pretty easy one to grow.

    @Nightsky: Thank you, too! I just checked the conditions again, and with the window closed, the humidity dipped down to 28%. Recent rains have raised the humidity. These Neps seem pretty resilient, as long as they get good lighting.

    @ Steven: I traded a good number and variety of cacti for the veitchii. It's gotta be one of the best trades I've done. The burbidge is potted in a mix of bark, charcoal, perlite, and a bit of shagnum, with a top layer of bark and charcoal.
