    Thez, your plant media looks very good.

    I've only used coffee for ferting my plants.

    Your clip looks very healthy with lots of leaves.

    It won't make the peltate leaves right away.

    First it will make the type of leaves that your plant is making now.

    Then it will make a few notched leaves, with the tendril moving at the base of the 'V' notch gradually further into each successive leaf.

    Finally, then you will get the peltate leaves that you are so looking forward to.

    And here's the scoop on the Wistuba clipeata clones:

    Clone 3 is the fastest grower, followed closely by Clone 2.

    Clone U, however is a notoriously slow grower.

    But since yours is so healthy looking, just show a bit of patience, keep the faith and it will be there for you soon enough.

    But in the meantime, next time you're talking to Mr. Wistuba, ask him to slip a Clone 2 and 3 into your Christmas stocking for you. Ho,Ho,Ho.

    Thanks, seriously, I didn't know that because I've never had clippies before and I hadn't heard about their growth rates.

    I've got a little clone 3 from him in my last shipment that came a month ago too (clickable again) and that's all the room I have for clippies at the moment:

    Well with Clone U being such a slow grower, there is still an air of mystery surrounding it.

    Namely, what sex it is going to reveal itself as.

    Clones 2 and 3 have both been grown out to flowering size and they both turned out to be male.

    Could it possibly be that the coy and demure Clone U is actually keeping us in rapt suspense, while we wait to see if 'she' could be?

    Only time will tell, so stay tuned.

    Thanks to Carnivoure12's window sill thread, i've been growing this N. clipeata Clone 3 in a south facing window over the past few months.

    A new leaf developing


    And the newest unopened pitcher, still a bit fuzzy.

    Wow! Stunning dvg, it is very beautiful, and can't believe how well it seems to be doing on your windowsill.

    Thank you for sharing, I'm sure it'll continue to thrive!

    Amazing as always. Any wisdom to share about Wistuba's mixed "Gunung Kelam" clones?

    My question is what's in the potting mix? I recently lost a little clone 3 from Wistuba to the winter
