    Omagosh, it opened.

    I'm surprised that Wistuba's clones aren't... whiter.

    I feed them when i feel they can use an extra little boost and the concentration is species, hybrid and seasonally dependent...and no you are not hallucinating.

    I'm surprised that they are so much fuzzier since they have been grown in a south facing window.

    Ohh well, I gotta "hear" my plants then hehe, is just that I was thinking I was over fertilizing my plants, because lastly they have been growing slower, but I have like three different possibilities for that haha, I just wanted to dismiss overfertilization xP
    Thanks God I wasn't hallucinating btw haha.. thanks for your reply

    The pitchers can vary a bit. Mine have produced some with nice reddish blush, but normally they have more typical pale colors.

    I am however surprised that the pitchers seem to retain the wings (even if reduced) to a larger size than what is mentioned in books. Maybe there wasn't many young specimens to examine when the description was made.

    Regards,

    Christer

    If you are growing your plants under lights controlled by a timer, the fertilization process is more standardized.

    But if you are growing them in a greenhouse or close by a window, seasonal variables will have to be taken into account.

    This clipeata was growing on a window, but the daytime light fluctuates from 7.5 hours of daylight on Dec. 21 all the way up to 17.5 hours of daylight on June 21.

    The plants obviously need less fertilizer when they are receiving less light.

    Good luck with your plants!

    Thanks Daniel,

    I wasn't sure how well it would do either, but others including yourself were having success with their magic windows, so i thought i'd give it a whirl too...

    ...so far, so good...
