    Little Truncata Pasian Showing Promise

    I picked this upo off of nepenthesmatt at a LACPS meeting a few months ago, and I'm glad I did. Check out this little bugger. I took it for a walk today and it looked so good in the sun, I just had to snap some pics. It's in a 4 inch pot for reference. Judging by the great coloration on these little immature pitchers, I can't wait for the full grown. Feel free to post some pics of your Pasians too. I grow this one about 5 inches from a 4 bulb T8 fixture.

    Since the Truncata has those odd-shaped squarish leaves, does the adult plant stay on the small size and remain compact? Is this Nep a good candidate for a limited grow space?

    I think all Truncatas eventually get pretty large, but as seedlings they dont take up much room
    The leaves dont get long like a bical or rafflesiana but the small square leaves becomes large square leaves and do get pretty wide eventually. The pitchers are the main concern though, they can get to 24 inches tall!

    truncata is definetly NOT a plant for a grower with limited space. These things are beasts, beasts of the east! Like every other nep, they'd do good for a little but quickly out grow a small space. And besides, who grows N. truncata to be SMALL?! thats like, capital punishment!

    Looking at all these pretty lil babies makes me remeber that i need to get one lol! While i love my LL truncs, they're blown out of the water by these guys when it comes to color. Very nice guys!
