    i had a hybrid of it with izumae that popped up in some jac seeds grown out by BE......it was a weed....the pure species seems to be a PITA unless you have some combination of conditions it likes......im sure im only missing something small that i cant figure out that would make it thrive but dang if i know what it is....JH's plant i looked at was robust and healthy and ive seen really nice specimens in others collections but im missing something that allows it to thrive.....

    im half tempted to forget about the pitchers for awhile and spray its leaves with fertilizer it and see if that doesnt get it going good.....maybe getting it to a larger size and it will be hardier.....maybe its just touchy as heck as small.....feeding it with ferts should get it growing bigger faster as it wont try and put energy into pitchers which it really aint making anyway and once it gains some size back off the ferts and encourage it to grow pitchers....

    I've found that if you have multiple plants in your collection (like 50% or so) that aren't pitchering, it's because your light isn't sufficient. Once I gave my plants more light, they sprung into action. As long as you give em enough light and consistent conditions for a couple of months, they usually start growing nicely again..unless it's something that needs really really high humidity to pitcher (glabrata apparently does, hamata does, etc.).

    the jac is the only nep out of close to 14 sitting in the exact same conditions in the hardening off tank that is not pitchering......were other neps having the problem i would be concerned but supposedly touchy species are doing fine along side the jac....

    Hmm, well I musta just found the sweet spot for mine I guess XD. It gets unfiltered intense So.Cal sun dappled from about 1:30PM on until sunset. In a pot that looks a little too small in a mix of like... 50/50 coco husk and lfs, that I'm afraid to change lest it loses its pitcher and aborts the next tendrils..

    Did you just get it or have you had it a while? Asking to see what you did with it when it was smaller because I think I remember a pic of it and it was pretty big..

    BTW yours is alot larger than mine which still makes me think i might have an issue due to its small size...
