So, I have this little Nepenthes aristolochioides that is, unfortunately, just limping along and seems to be getting smaller since I bought it at last fall's New England Carnivorous Plant Society's plant show, from what I believe is that notorious MA nursery. My conditions are as follows:
Three inches from the lights which are 1 T5HO 24 watt, 2 T8 17 Watt, and 2 T12 20 Watt, each is 24" long.
The temp is around 75 to 80 degrees F during the day, and into the low sixties, even upper 50's, at night.
Humidity is around 50% during the day, and 90-100% at night, but there is living sphagnum moss in the pot, which (i think) increases the relative humidity around the plant, which is quite small and really buried in the moss (though I trim it back so as not to block the light). It is growing right next to my Heliamphora pulchella, which is doing very well.
The medium is 1:1:1, LFS : perlite : orchid bark, and has been in it since January. The medium before, the stuff i bought it in, was very tightly packed (but actually good quality) LFS.
According to my research, my conditions are pretty fairly spot-on. Something i thought of might be humidity stability, which i could remedy by putting a plastic bag (with a hole in it) or a clear plastic cup or something to keep the humidity more constant.
Please tell me what you think,
