    I found a place that sells them for $49. And with such a beginner oriented store I'm suprised that they would stock it.

    What kind of setup do you need to grow one of these? I'm almost... sorta... tempted but since my growing setup is somewhat spartan right now (basically a rack in a badly lit window with a good lighting setup above it) I'm worried I'd just be killing them off.

    You'd grow it like any other N. truncata, which aren't that picky about where they grow from what I've heard. 85-80 day and 75-70 night (I think) since N. truncata is considered as an intermediate.

    Yeah, a black truncata is a fairly safe investment for anyone. I find them to be tougher than ventrata because it adjust much faster and pitchers in almost anything.

    So if I grow a Ventrata/Ventricosa with decent luck, I could probably grow this? I have decent luck with mine. Dear lord, maybe I should go for it. O.o

    Just invest in stronger lights if you want dark pitchers.

    Does anyone have any updated pic's of their baby black truncata's? I just got mine about a month ago and it looks like most of the other babies at this point. I am really curious as to what i can expect about 6 months from now with more mature pitchers.

    Please also share your growing conditions.

    Mine is in a mesh pot with 1/2 dried sphagnum and 1/2 orchid bark mix.
    Temp = 75-80 day, 55-60 night
    Humidity = 50-60% day, 75-80% night.

    Anyone using any type of fertilizer?
