    Seedgrown N. macrophylla update thread

    Upon arrival - 10/11/08


    Today - 3-24-09


    its been a crazy 5 months...was reaaaalllly worried about it when it arrived. was all shook up on the box like a martini, and the root system was pretty destroyed...not to mention the condition of the plant. its made a very nice recovery.

    Very nice. I too have received shipments in the past which looked more like wads of guacamole than Nepenthes and others -- only to have them come back in a big way.

    Nasty evil little plants. Gotta love them . . .

    Thanks for the kind comment, but I grow highlanders because I -- much like you -- live in an area that really encourages it; and after a costly failure of a ****ing heating element in a large terrarium, after a Turrets bout of expletives right out of The Exorcist, and the swift application of the Roman Ritual, I no longer grow lowland Nepenthes.

    Plus, no-holds barred, highlanders are much, much cooler. C'mon, that macrophylla . . .

    Lol bella, thats great. Lowlanders only do well for me indoors during the summer sadly :\ im sure if i moved them to a room where i dont let it get down into the 50s or 40s, they would be fine though....maybe this will be the year for me to give it a shot

    Thanks indigo. Though I can't really say I put any work into it...just kinda let it be, watered it and when it started to grow better I began fertilizing, which it seems to have taken really well to. I'm glad I was able to save this plant from an almost certain death.
