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:
"I may be on the side of angels, but do not mistake me for one."
Lowland N. truncata ~14-15 in leaves:
N. QoH x KoS
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.
That QoH x KoS is looking good there Yann. Is that the newest pitcher? My other one is starting to pick up speed now that i moved it to a warmer spot. I think it didn't like being so close to the window all winter long.
Wrong thread to ask in, but are you still growing your bical in lower humidity? I need to move mine soon. It will be a 12 inch plant in the next leaf or so and will soon outgrow the 10 gal aquarium. Either that or put it up for auction at the NASC.
Thanks Damon, that is the latest pitcher to open up and colored up. It's inflating another one right now; coming from such great care it's no wonder it didn't skip a beat!
The bical is still in lower RH ~50% but it's been acting funny. It may be trying to flower but I'm not sure. It it's because it threw out 3 basal simultaneously. I've considering putting mine up in the auction as well; it'll grow in lower RH but the leaves and pitchers just don't last that long.
Thanks. It helps that it seems to be a very hardy species. It took the intermediate/highland conditions like a champ.
That gives me some ideas about the bical. I have a humidifier that I no longer use. I think I'll fire it back up and place it in an empty rack with new lighting for a lowland area.
wow French! That leaf is unbelievably huge! I wonder how big the pitcher will be...
