    I agree with Tony about that cup you have your Nepenthes pot sitting in. Indoors evaporation shouldn't be an issue so why not the typical 1" or so type of saucer? If it were exposed to very strong/hot sunlight that dried it I could understand the greater watering capacity, but under a fluorescent on an air conditioned desk top it seems a less than ideal choice.

    Good growing, Jack

    About half a year, I accidentally broke off the growing tip. Since then, it's put up two off-shoots which have been growing at a glacial pace.

    Im sorry to hear that! My N. singalana is growing at a similar rate as well. I'm thinking about injecting the soil with coffee.

    I did this with mine, and it grew a little bit faster, and sent up a nice pitcher for me. It doesn't seem to have the same effects as with other nepenthes, however, as I don't notice the next couple of leaves being significantly larger. When I coffeed my truncata, the next leaf ended up 2.5-3times the size of the previous one.

    any tips for Wolfn and I about how to get a singalana out of a funk, then? I repotted it recently, and i thought it was going to pitcher, then changed its mind. As best I figure, everything should be fine for it to pitcher, it just needs a little "jumpstart."


    Thank you,
