    Nepenthes robcantleyi

    About a year ago, i ordered a tiny Nepenthes robcantleyi, It has grown only a little as it had just come out of TC, so it's just beginning to pick up, so i wanted to share a picture thread of my precious plant, which, at it's size, sells for over 100$

    At the moment, it has a 3/4 inch pitcher colouring up, afflicted by small lid syndrome. It is in a nepenthes soil from the seller along with plenty of NZ sphagnum, in a 5" pot. It is in a constant 70% humidity and goes from 80 f degrees by day and 65 f degrees by night. It is starting to develop two more pitchers at the moment, so the next few weeks will be interesting once it can feed.
    If Swiss Cheese has holes, and more holes=less cheese, and more cheese=more holes, does that mean that more cheese=less cheese?

    The leaves are misshapen due to a lack of light before i could lay my hands on a t5. They should be getting better now

    I was thinking the same thing Mike, and Acurite... if you paid 100$ for it, sorry mate but you got ripped off.... you can get them for 40-55$ average...

    I read this over a few times to make sure it didn't say you'd been growing it for a year, because it still has baby-leaves and I became worried. But just to get it right - you said it just came outta TC, yeah? It looks healthy for just getting un-jar'd
