    Yes! How did you know?

    That's good to hear. I did wash it thouroughly a few times to try to get the dirt out. The water was a very dirty brown each time.

    Mosser lee is junk. The one bag I bought should have read: grass clippings, twigs, leaf bits.

    Aww, and your babies are cute

    I have been keeping my little nep outside in my enclosed patio down here in SFL. It is kept in a 'critter carrier' surrounded by sphagum moss to keep humidity high; it gets direct sunlight for about 5 hours thru the patio screen; and I put the lid on at night after spraying to keep the humidity high. I have kept it outside even when the temps have dropped to the 50's at night. I currently have 4 small green pitchers on it. I will be interested to see how it responds to the lowland conditions once summer arrives here. So I guess right now, I am treating it as an intermediate!

    My truncata is finally showing some color. I guess the pitchers weren't large enough before. These were taken today.

    Here's my latest coloring up




    ...and the whole plant in 3" pot


    I get the feeling I got one of the more robust growers (either that or they like San Diego weather?)

    OMG, sooo... what's your secret? Coffee treatments every day?

    Wow! Now that's a really nice specimen, Thez_yo!

    Hehe...thanks!

    It's gotten one coffee treatment since I got it (didn't seem to do anything for it unlike the other neps though), and a mix that's half coco husk chunks that flytrapshop sells and half chilean lfs, water once a week, 4ish hours direct sunshine through a window from ~1:45-6pm this time of year (like 2 hours in the winter, oops), and humidity that's somewhere between 30%-80% LOL. As for temps, about 5ish degrees warmer during the day and 10ish degrees warmer at night than coastal San Diego. Also helps that it got a head-start from Tony, and that it sits in a tray with friends like N.jacq, N.flava, and N.macro (to mock them that they don't make nice pitchers for me).

    I think I've fed it once on some snail eggs I found outside on a snail buried in my onions...

    I've honestly tried as long as I could to not look at this thread, I knew from the BE photo's they'd be breathtakingly gorgeous but who knew they'd grow wicked fast too! Is it weird that I find them cute?

    Sigh. One day...
