    sss, I don't think you can get a nep this large for $10 anywhere.
    I bought my 'Ventrata' for $25 @ Home Depot as a large size a few years ago.
    The upside to getting a xxl nep is that it will produce basals and vines quickly.
    I can't believe how root bound this nep is, it is just like a root bound houseplant!

    I think I recognize that sink!! Are you the person with the huge N. Sanguinea that hangs over that sink?

    Yeah, I have a large sanguinea that I take pics of and water over the sink.
    It has 3 vines up to the ceiling right now.
    Anyone who doesn't have a sanguinea orange should get one from Andy, it grows very fast
    sanguinea orange old pic, I bought this as a 6" plant and it turned into this.










    Peace,

    Zero,
    Was the miranda bought at the Lowes in Biddeford? I saw them there over the summer for $35.00 or something around that. Nice big plant though. I bought one at a Lowes in MA, and clipped off the dead leaves, changed the media, repotted, checked for pests, etc. Just curious if the pitchers browned up on you a week or so after being brought home?

    Ohh well that's just what I read somewhere else. They said they got a 10" pot for $10.

    I can't wait till I get mine, the lowes near me is getting them sometime around mid december to early january. I see these really nice pictures and I get soo excited.

    Ohh wow, I just saw your sanguinea. Mine is only in a 4 inch pot biggest pitcher is 6 cm. That one is HUGE
