    Nepenthes Gothic growers

    So after people were making fun of Victorian ladies dressed in those fancy gowns with huge collars in the Chatbox one night I noticed that the mature pitchers of N. Gothica had a similar look so I ordered one!

    Anyways N. sibuyanensis is HL and N. maxima is generally said to be LL and is where I've been growing my N. maxima for a year or so. I was curious who is growing this hybrid and in what conditions? I have Highland 75*F days and 50*F nights 90% RH or Lowland 85-95*F days/90% RH and 70*F nights to work with.

    Any info or photos of your N. Gothica plants you care to share is appreciated!

    Hey swords! You will like this one!
    I am growing N.gothica currently in intermediate conditions. 63f nights 82f days. 85%+ Humidity. It isn't the fasted growing nepenthes on the table but it is by far the slowest. It cruises right along....Mine is about 9 inches across and is putting out 4+ inch pitchers on every leaf. Just had one open up a few days ago and the peristome is now starting fold back. Was starting to get a little pale until I picked up the foliar feeding. To which it responded like a champ
    I'm at work now but will throw some pics out for you when I get home. The pitchers are young but they are nice looking!

    I don't have it, but I do believe the reason its called N. 'gothica' is because of that very collar like peristome!

    Hi,
    Yeah, I think EP came up with the name 'Gothica' because of the persitome being flat, ruffled, and almost black under good light.
    It is a easy grower but like most of my sib hybrids it chooses when it wants to pitcher.
    Mine grow with no humidity control and gets warm in the summer and somewhat cool in the winter.
    It just put out a huge (for me) pitcher and I took some pics after the lid started drying out because I moved but a lot of my plants are still at my old apt.
    PICS,


    Peace,
    Zero

    Very Nice Zero! How large in diameter or how long is each leaf roughly? The N. maxima you sent me last June is doing great in Lowland conditions, will the N. Gothica be OK alongside it?

    I got my N. Gothica today but it has no pitchers at the moment so it's not much to look at for now. It appears to make a vine rather early on or at least have more widely spaced leaves on a young plant than most small Nepenthes?

    swords,
    I think it's a intermediate but may grow well in LL conditions.
    I think mine is about 12-15in. in dia.
    You can see the leaf coming straight towards you into the top of the pitcher in this pic,

    Peace,
    Zero
