    N. clipeata's Peltate Leaves

    A couple pics from N. clipeata Clone 3. This species is interesting because of it's exaggerated, almost mid-leaf tendril insertion points.

    From above, the dimpled insertion points for the tendril under the leaf are clearly visible.



    Meanwhile, on the underside of the leaf, the tendril attaches a fair distance in from the outer leaf margin.



    Cheers,

    dvg

    OMG I want my clippies to look like that already!! How old is that plant?

    It looks absolutely wonderful; I love the leaves and pitchers and all . What mix do you keep it in and how often do you water? I hear they want to be drier, but then other people say you can treat them like everything else so I'm wondering who's right.

    Thanks for the comments,

    Thez Yo, I got this plant two years ago at the end of August 2008.

    It is growing in my regular Nep mix, maybe with a few more mineral components in the mix.

    This plant with it's leathery leaves, can dry out for weeks at a time.

    And I do let it dry out, maybe for longer than is generally recommended, but this plant shows it's resiliency by not showing any signs of stress, at least none that I can see.

    This is my only Nep that I grow upstairs in the livingroom as a houseplant. It sits on a small table in front of an unobstructed, sunny, southfacing window.

    Ok, thanks! I got mine a year ago now from AW himself...and I have to say, it's a little bit over 3" in diameter so I guess I'm doing something wrong. Do you fertilize the roots or pitchers with anything special if you don't mind me asking? Mine won't make those lovely peltate leaves yet

    here's a sad looking pic of my clone U (click for bigger)..if you don't mind telling me if you see something glaringly wrong with what I'm doing:
