    UPDATE! Here's some photos from today, 6/7/11. As you can see, the leaves have become smaller since purchase, and are slowly getting adapted and increasing in size. Additionally, you can see one of two pitchers it had produced, which excited me even though it isn't incredibly impressive. Plant has been doing much better now that I have given it a top dressing of LFS, and has been growing more vigorously. Leaves have also become much thicker than those that it came with originally, IMHO.

    well, for me i found out it was the easiest to care for. The media for northiana has to be well aeriated and loose, keep moist to dry. I have tried burnt earth, 80% perlite/20% chopped sphagnum moss, and the same ratio for peat and perlite, they all thrive well. since i live in the tropics i grow it in the open garden with 2 layer 60% nursery shade. Direct sunlight will burn the leaves turning them to yellowish brown.

    Mine was grown from seed since 2006. As it grows larger it was transfered to a pot with diameter 8 inch ( 20cm ). It has produced ground off shoot twice. The first time i cut off and rot it. The second time i leave it to see what will happen to the main stem. It is producing larger pitcher now. Here are the photos.
