    I don't think miracle grow is going to harm a Nepenthes much, but I'm willing to bet that it isn't going to pitcher because it doesn't need them.

    From visiting Sam and seeing his place and talking to him. He generally makes hybrids that are intermediates in terms of temp requirements although he has some HL species at another nursery way up the mountain (not even sure he was 1000 feet above sea level). He might have N. X 'miranda' at is place may have saw one or two there.... and miranda would fight the bill as being a intermediate sort of plant although it does grow in HL conditions.........

    Oh, I'm sorry to offend your delicate sense of style, Travis. Next time I'll wear my 'anarchy in the UK' shirt with the connecting nipple ring chain and aboriginal lip plate to make you feel more at home.

    Looks like a miranda the way the tendrils are coming off the undersides of the leaves..

    How do you know it's a "highland" hybrid, if you don't know what is ?
    Why the inclination towards Sam's nursery?
    Just digging for info.
    LOL. In looking through the member picture gallery I'm one of the only normal looking people on here. I guess beauty is in the eye of the dude dressed all emo taking pictures of himself in his mom's basement trying to look edgy. You know, like the old saying .

    I think it might be a highland hybrid because of the little sign stuck in it when he bought it saying "tropical pitcher plant- highland hybrid" that had color photos of what the mature pitchers looked like. Wish I had saved it, but I didn't.

    I agree. Doesn't seem to be many mature pictures for such a massive plant. Makes sense why it wouldn't need any though if it's getting suck a boost in nutrients from the soil.

    Looks like N. miranda to me too. Nice plant, I remember back when mine finally started pitchering (took like 8 months after I had it shipped to me) but now, no matter what I do or where I move it, it just keeps going. Here it is just before I chopped it all up to make more, and threw it up in the rafters of the greenhouse where it still sits. The gap between the bars was about 12 or 13" so guess how big that pitcher was in the lower left hand corner The uppers were a pretty good size too, see the one just above the huge lower.

    Seth, you never cease to crack me up. Your my boy regardless of what you wear. Don't worry, I'll stick up for you in the bars too.
