    Sorry! Hopefully people will update every once in a while so you'll have plenty of time to add your pics!

    They are a bit slower than most average Neps IMO but they aren't the slowest, once you find the proper tuning of all it's requirements it can really start taking off. Pasian is slower for me then the lowland form but I believe it's due to growing it in LL conditions rather than HL ones.

    truncata is my favorite Nep to show to visitors because it's large in my growing conditions.
    My large one I got from Hawaii 4-5 years ago. I don't know it's origins but it may be one of EP's greenhouse bred truncatas. It has been through drought to being over watered high temps low temps and just keeps getting better. I just re potted it a month ago as it was in the same soill for 5 years.
    I have a total of 5 truncatas.
    OK, PICS
    My largest and so far best looking truncata

    My only surviving Atlanta Botanical Garden seedling. I just noticed this about 3 months ago in my ventricosa pot.
    I had about 50 seedlings but they all died when I had someone plant sitting for me.



    QoH x KoS Easy grower so far

    Here's a pic of both of my truncatas - pasian on left, QoHXKoS on right (in 3" pot)


    and a closeup of the color that developed on the last fully grown pitcher of the baby QoHXKoS

    It's a really fast, easy grower for me.

    Here's my Truncata "Highland". I bought this sucker for $9. It arrived in January, but has been in transplant shock ever since. In the past couple of weeks, it finally started to grow again. Here are pictures from a few days ago:

    It's definitely becoming a puzzle finding room for it and the N. bicalcarata isn't making the matter any easier... A little bitter sweet but definitely rewarding.
