    A delicious looking plant and quite a fascinating new species, I still think that the new name is kind of weak. I would much rather have a plant named N. cantleyi or N. rob. N. robcantleyi just seems like too much?

    Oh well he definitely deserves it though!

    Beautiful plants everyone, I can't wait til mine looks like anything special.

    Apparently, N. cantleyi would clash with the hybrid named N. x cantleyi, hence that possibility was discarded. As for N. rob, beats me but that would probably be the shortest species name for a Nepenthes.

    "Rob" the nep.

    Either way, Mr. Cantley himself is still embarrassed over the naming of this new species, but I do think he well deserves it to be named after him!

    I know most of you have probably read it, but I just wanted to link this thread here because it was seriously a great read.

    I got a N. robcantleyi about 11/12 months ago, about 2 inches across, with two pitchers. now it's 3 inches across with no pitchers, the leaves looked elongated, so im upping the lights and hoping that'll do the trick.
    any other suggestions? btw, after upping the lights a bit, one pitcher started to inflate, so i think i've hit upon something.
    If Swiss Cheese has holes, and more holes=less cheese, and more cheese=more holes, does that mean that more cheese=less cheese?

    What humidity is it getting? What temps? Those are the two biggest factors for nepenthes

    I have always loved the "Queen of Hearts" look,
    but never was able to get my hands on one.
    Some nice looking plants here everyone.

    Grow fast & propagate!
    (It's the only way I will ever afford one!)


    By the way,the plant those yellow leaves are the plant's way of trying to tell you something.....
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    I want one of these but they are way to pricy. Hopefully the future releases from the now flowering plants at BE will be a bit cheaper.
