    Wow! So they stay smaller and don't get that wide? I guess I do notice my small ones seriously bending their leaves under...

    I find that this one grows very compactly and slowly, but this one is starting to make some larger leaves now, since it was repotted into this larger container.

    Growing this plant on a window sill for a year may have contributed to its slowness though, because once i moved it back under the basement lights, it started back to its previous regular growth pattern again.

    The leaves are held at an angle to perpendicular, almost like a series of fan blades.

    Any cooler in the basement?

    I've always seen this plant listed as lowland and immediately eliminated it from my list. However, after reading this thread last year, I did a bit more research & found that it grows at 600-800 M while N. tenuis grows at 1000 M. After reading about your conditions and knowing that N. tenuis hasn't been fussy - I'm definitely interested in giving this one a shot.

    Last year I grew a N. maxima (formerly eymae) on the windowsill and it pitchered there year-round. It's nice to have at least a few non-fussy plants to share my living area...

    In the summer it's cooler in the basement, but i'm thinking the lack of intense sunlight and shorter days in the winter really caused this plant to slow down.

    This plant seemed to grow fine in the summer, but started to wind down it's growth during the autumn and winter months.

    I'm now of the belief that this plant is closer in temperment to an intermediate than it is to a true lowlander.

    I'm insanely taken by and jealous of your glorious clipeata . I'm going to sit mine next to your pictures as inspiration for when they 'grow up'.
