    My lord! That is a gorgeous plant. Burkei is soooo on my "to get" list. How are the growing requirements for burkei, are they picky, or comparable to ventricosa at all?

    N. burkei is very easy to grow. I grow mine under lights in the basement in a seedling tray. And the humidity is low here in Alberta. It seems to form pitchers better than most of my ventricosa variants.

    here are the most recent photos of burkei now .
    .
    I've now added a two bulb HO t-5 fixture to this terrarium the plants in it are coloring at a much faster pace.
    .

    cant wait till a few months pass with the new fixture in place.

    I tried this on a veithcii and its newest leaf is now 2-3x as large as the previoius (which was formed before coffee.) Its amazing how this works.

    On most of my plants it seems to not have affected them at all, and the three or four that were struggling before now have brown leaves dying off at a faster pace

    I watered with coffee last weekend, so I guess I'll wait a couple more weeks and see what happens, but I fear for the life of my sibXhamata
