    n.ariso pitcher macro

    This pitcher was not grown by me, but is still hanging around from the nursery whence I bought it and was sitting perfectly in the sunshine today - I love how tubby the pitchers are on this plant! The pitcher height is 2cm max.

    I'm really enjoying this plant. Mine is growing like a weed (sort-of) with all this cold weather. It just keeps putting out bigger & bigger pitchers. When i get a chance, I'll snap a pic or two & post.
    All the best,
    Ron

    Aristo was one of my faves, the colder it got day and night the better it grew. When summer really hit around mid July, it would pout until September when the cool day/night temps came back.

    My largest is roughly 3-3.5cm - so not large by any stretch of the imagination. However, the 1st pitcher I got after it arrived in mid October was only about 1cm - so it's progressing nicely imho.

    In addition to the unique pitcher shape, one of the things I like about these guys is that the pitcher takes on the unique form at a very early age - unlike so many of the other Neps that have that "every baby pitcher looks like every other baby Nep pitcher" style...

    At the moment - no. It's inflating its 5th pitcher since October and the size progression has been nice... However, I've learned that I don't really know how hard something is to grow until I've got at least a year or two under my belt. Some plants struggle in the winter & others in the summer. Although I've been growing CPs for years, I only recently allowed myself the luxury of getting a few Neps & Utrics - so I also don't have any real history growing any of these guys. Some people feel aristo's are tough - we'll see. Some felt that way about hamata's also - but the 2 I've had for about a year have grown like weeds continuously since they arrived (about a year ago iirc) as rootless little babies ... So - time will tell...
    All the best,
    Ron
