    Pics of Some Blood Red N. macfarlanei

    Hiya Fellow Nep'ers-

    Came across some photos of some blood red N. macfarlanei and thought I 'd share it with you folks.

    I bought a cactus. A week later it died. And I got depressed, because I thought, Damn. I am less nurturing than a desert.

    Very nice - I love the subtle shape of N. macfarlanei. Mine doesn't quite look that good though. Not yet, at least.

    yeah! N. macfarlenii is a fantastic species that is very underrated. Very nice pics though. I do like the bright red one...although I prefer the whiter one more.

    Surprisingly flexible in my experience. I think I recently read that it's a lowlander, but I keep mine in highland conditions and in spite of being underpotted and generally ignored, it's been a real trooper and puts on a good show. It's a little slow-growing and stays relatively compact, which probably has something to do with my neglect of it, but it's very undemanding and manages to pitcher well regardless.

    Mines always grown well but not pitchered well for me as a windowsill plant I've had for yeeeears.
    Every now and again it will have a pitchering fit, but I can't nail down the chenge that sets it off.

    Seedjar, what conditions do you grow yours in?
    Good growing, Jack
