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.
looks like a mini bird house , for say imaginary micro hummingbirds .
if thez yo, are 2cm, about how large are yours Ron? and are these tuff to grow ?
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.
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...
Now the excuses are over - here's the newest fully-formed pitcher (left - background) with the earliest (right - foreground) from October (& brand new tendril in between).
Since the 1st pic was so blurry, here's a little bit larger pic of the moss-haven that the aristo & friends call home ... (with some effort, you can also compare the very different growth habit of the aristo & hamata)
Some nice progress! Love the N.hamata!
