    I agree Dart, I too believe that consistency is the key. Not all species are able to take the abuse, though I have found most are. I was hoping I could coax the N. talangensis to pitcher for me; that might be a losing battle though. I know a few that have had problems with it in close to perfect conditions.

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Aagh! Those first two are pretty close to the top of my wish list. And I miss my muluensis x lowii...
    Very nice pictures. Sorry to hear about your troubles with talangensis - I guess it's kind of finicky for cooler temperatures. They're definitely worth the work though. Mine is one of my favorite Neps, when I'm not waiting months for the pitchers to inflate.

    Joe - Sorry to hear about your muluensis x lowii. I really like mine, it's a cute little plant. I'm not worried about the talangensis, it's a small price to pay for growing things different from nature. I'll keep it for awhile longer, if it doesn't do anything I'll try to find a new home for it. I've heard tale of even those with cooler conditions have issues getting it to pitcher. I think it's finicky all the way around. Maybe there's more than one clone out there.

    ellisonk001 - Thanks . The N. spectabilis just recovered and started pitchering again from the last basals it made. Now it's making three more. They take a huge toll on the main vine unfortunately. That will probably be my last pitcher on the main plant for awhile.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words .
