    be prepared to wait out for 9 months. my N. talangensis stopped pitchering for me until the winter. that being said, this plant needs solid, or even lower than average highland conditions in order to do well. it's temperament is similar to N. aristolochioides, possibly even a little more picky.

    Yes, I am quite patient as I tend to somewhat not think about the things that do not pitcher for me. I have read a lot about this plant.

    My talangensis doesn't seem to care to awfully much about humidity or light, as long as it gets at least 40%+ humidity and bright shade it seems to find that acceptable, but heat is a big problem. If there is no other way, I have found that daytime temps can be as high as the mid 80s, but you better have a nighttime low in the 50s and maybe, if you can swing it, even the high 40s wouldn't be a bad idea. For my plant cool nights are a must, definitely priority one.

    My temps in the night are around 45 to 65 depending on whether I open the windowsill or not. I live in CA, so the nights are naturally cold but rarely freezing.

    ive always had problems with talangensis until recently, when my plants just started to take off and pitcher out of nowhere, humidity, light, and temperatures are absolutely key for this plant, and it seems you have to have them all in sync with its expectations otherwise it just grows but never pitchers.... IIRC even Rob Cantley has a problem with this species...

    Will burying the tendrils work?
    Theoretically, this would create a moist cool and consistant environment.
    This method works with other nepenthes, too.

    Yes, you can try. I've successfully used the burying method to encourage my talangensis to form pitchers. But this method may make the pitcher loss its color. See my pic here:

    Here is an old thread when I first grew this species:

    If you know other unique plants that can walk, can talk, can sing, or can eat people, please tell me and I definitely want to get one.
