    Woah. It looks great! That basal seemed to have burst in size since I packed it up. I believe I got that plant from DroseraBug, if I remember correctly. It is a nice plant, and I look forward to seeing updates on it thriving for you.

    Hi Halt, the roots are in the soil. There is a long woody stem that is six to eight inches long. You can see it in the third picture on the right side. Tracey has it tied up to that stake. I still can't believe how nice those basal pitchers look. I wonder if N. gracilis actually grows in boxes in situ, since they didn't look that good when I sent it.

    Thanks Xvart, apreantly it loves my growing conditions and loving care. I like the way it looks hanging from the stick looks more pleasing in the grow chamber. The basal has taken right off with growth and the top has grown alot to, this is a VERY NICE nep..
    THANKS again Xvart...

    Wow,

    I remember that plant. What a beaut! I miss that bugger. It apparently got some nice petting since it left my house. Xvart, I commend your growing expertise. Looks great. Apparently that plant is tough. It's been shipped all over the country and just keeps looking better. I bet Xvart talked to it gave it some great media in a cozy warm spot. I'm impressed.

    Heh. I greatly appreciate the kind words. However, as I was explaining to Tracey, when I received the plant from you I was short on basically all media types, so the media composition I used was pretty much 98% APS and one strand of LFS and a teaspoon of peat. Oh, and I think there was a piece or two of orchid bark towards the bottom.

    It is a great plant. I love these plants that get traded around to various people. It has been in several hands, seen the country. Who knows when it will stop.

    Good growing, all of us!
