    Gah! I love this plant! I've always wanted one and I just might get one. Though I am afraid that Alaska might not provide enough light! It would definitely be a challenge for me to grow. Great info on this species... One picture! Nice

    BUMP Sorry to bring up an old thread but this species deserves it!

    So hopefully I've got one headed my way. I just wanted to review and see if there's any recent action on this species.

    So it originates from limestone alkaline substrates, but some of you say it can grow just fine in LFS, peat, bark, or a more classic Nepenthes mix. Seems like high light is the key. (That means I'll have to get a strong light!)

    It wants solid highlander temperatures, got it. Humidity can't hurt I suppose. I wonder if it can be a little dry if it naturally withstands beating sun and winds?

    I KNOW some of you guys have an argentii nestled amongst your giant Nepenthes collections, so PLEASE, let's see some pictures of this sweet plant! Even if it isn't looking good.

    Kris? How are the three growth points going?
    Thez? How's yours, grown any at all?
    Jeremiah? what's your plant up to?
    Anyone else out there that grows this?

    I'm afraid I'm obsessed with it, so here's just a sweet picture from cpukforums

    I traded mine away for some ceph seeds a little while ago

    While I had it though, I had it in half lfs, half cocohusk chunks, in really freaking strong sunshine and in the way of wind (on the edge of the plants on my balcony as opposed to the center of the neps ghetto). It was essentially in windy-desert conditions like a cactus. I kept it pretty dry too - I think the potting material would get rock-solid-dry for a couple days before I watered again because it was in a 3" pot and I only water once a week. It grew all of a leaf and a half in the 3ish months I had it, which includes acclimation for about 3 weeks because it was a Wistuba plant. No pitchers for me though

    Traded it away!

    Those Cephalotus better germinate well!

    Thanks for the input anyway...

    I would like to try an N. argentii or N. campanulata mounted with some miniature orchids. One could be HL and one intermediate/LL.

    Alright well I finally received this awesome species and I'm officially bumping the thread and posting some pics of my new arrival. I have it growing in 100% sphagnum moss. This is not a substrate I have heard of as being successful, but nor have I heard of it being a bad idea. So I guess I will be the one who finds out either way how argentii grows in only moss. If anyone's got this plant and has pics, come on lets post em.

    Here's mine.
