    Nepenthes Vogelii, should I get one??

    I've been in love with this species since I first saw pictures of it the question is how hard is it to grow? I've heard that is is somewhat of an intermediate/highland plant. I'd just like to hear the opinion of somebody that actually grows this species.
    Good Growing!

    I grow it....and so far, it seems to be pretty easy, if a bit slow. I find that it benefits from a well drained chunky mix and good lighting.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I grow mine rather easily in HL conditions. Airy mix of LFS, perlite, orchid bark, and charcoal.. LOT's of light, and a bit of love. It's pitchering nicely and growing at a steady rate. An absolute must in every HL collection IMHO. I wouldn't trade mine for the world.

    It seems to like the same conditions as platychila - a little on the warmer side, and lots of sunshine.

    Well shortly after posting I went on Jeremiah's website and looked at the pictures of vogelii in the wild, and well I kinda ordered one! I'll post pics when it comes.
    Good Growing!

    I had one and loved the 2" pitchers it came with. Unfortunately, that's all I got to see!
    So, um, if this one has bigger pitchers, can you bring this also?

    Well is has a 14" leaf span so I imagine it's pitchers will be greater than two inches and for 40 bucks I'm really happy! I just can't wait to have some of those amazing uppers.
    Good Growing!
