After catching some conversations over the size of root systems in Nepenthes bicalcarata, N. rajah and others I thought this would serve as a good example. I have had this plant for about a year and a half and ever since it recovered from being shipped in an Indiana winter, it hasn't stopped to look back or skipped a beat. It was definitely overdue for a repotting and I had some spare time tonight so this little guy finally got what he was asking for. I lightly pushed on the pot to loosen the media and it cracked on me. I'm not too sure if it was due to tempered plastic or from the roots being packed so tight but in never the less you can clearly see the roots imprinted on the inside of the pot. Enjoy!
When I received it:
And for neglecting it it rewards me with 4 basals
My size 11 slipper for comparison.
This was the largest pot I had and sadly will only last 6 months - 1 year at most before I have to upgrade to a gallon size pot. Good thing transplant shock has never been an issue for it in the past!
Thanks for looking!
