    Nepenthes muluensis, easier than expected.

    a number of months ago i received my wistuba order, containing N. muluensis and N. tenuis.
    surprisingly, despite the number of negative things i heard on muluensis being difficult to grow, it has not put up a single fuss, since unbagging and potting up, and through the acclimating process. Even now in my time of neglect on the plants, its continued to chug right along...
    a couple of months ago, Zu sent me a few plants, one being a relatively unhappy muluensis (i of course understood that it would be a TLC plant, and sadly that plant did not survive)

    However, here is a photo of my muluensis taken the other night...

    Nice! My muluensis arrived injured from Wistuba and the growth tip just died recently while N. clipatea U didnt even break a sweat .


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Sounds exactly like mine, minus the osmunda and perlite, which I substitute with pumice.

    Plant looks great though, Kris. Hopefully I will be obtaining one in the near future (forgot to add it to my last wistuba order).
