    N. diatas, My Mighty Tiny Giant

    This past summer I purchased a tiny, struggeling N. Diatas. The seller was very honest with me about it's condition. In the six months or so that we've been together it has shown me that it definitly likes my conditions, but, I haven't figured everything out yet.
    The ruler upright in the pot is buried to the one inch mark. From the top of the media to the top of the highest pitcher is 3.5 inches. At it's widest point the plant is 3" across.
    Right now it has nine inflated pitchers with two more forming.
    The older pitchers are green with a hint of red shading and are fairly toothless while the younger pitchers are redder and show tooth growth. I don't know if this has to do with the age of the plant, the lighting or genetics as I understand there are two varities being cloned.
    It is also growing a basal.
    The oldest and largest pitcher is featured in a closeup.

    coated plant wire to help keep the nep upright for the photos, i had planned to repot it and bury the stem more for stability, but now with the basal I'm not so sure

    I love N. diatas. I will definately be getting one of these this spring. They went down significantly in price at one of the vendors. Not that they were very expensive to begin with.

    Are N. diatas like easy to care for Hamatas?

    That plant looks like a palm tree, its doing great and seems to be recovering!
