    That is true, N. Miranda is a very heat-tolerant plant, hence why it makes such a great houseplant. My N. Miranda has never experienced temps below 65 in its life.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    That's quite a Miranda you got there, Andrew!

    I wonder where you got it from?

    Good to see it is doing well.

    Well, I don't think it's too much. I put a dropper full of orchid fertilizer in a gallon of water and drench the media, and then a week later I flush it out with RO water. From what I've read in The Savage Garden, a light fertilization can be beneficial for the plant.

    That's an awesome looking N. Miranda, adnedarn. It's nice to know that this acclimation process seems to be normal. I hope mine will eventually look like that!

    Just for future reference, what are some other types of Nepenthes that are hardy like N. Miranda and good for beginners?

    haha eplants! that was an old picture, it's been chopped up MANY times over the years is a much smaller plant right now, I trimmed it before my last move to our new house. But again, it delayed with the move, and is now back to pitchering.

    I had the same problem with my miranda and then i thought about it and the problem was obvious, too many growth points about 15-18 so i chopped of at least 11 and now its started pitchering immediately
