    Your plants look great. What direction is that window facing, and how much light would you say they get there?
    Thanks . . .

    That is a south-facing window and gets its most direct sun later in the Summer - early Fall -- when the sun is lower in the sky. It is enough light for the Heliamphora to grow its proper leaves and the Nepenthes seem to like it . . .

    Here is that very same pitcher twelve hours or so after those previous photos, just as it began to open. Nepenthes truncata have about the most dramatic and rapid "unfurling" of the peristome of any Nepenthes in my collection. They just get bigger and nastier looking every season . . .
