Apparently it is working! (And like refusing food from the tribe, it would be an insult not to accept!)"y'all are conspiring to get me to grow neps and I know it!"
["There, I now did my part to help the conspiracy!...with Guilt & Manipulation!]
Just look at the plant! Look closely! ...See the gorgeous form & nice colors...!
Now repeat after me... "This is the plant I'm looking for!...
I can't just go about my business!...
Grow along...! Grow along....!
LOL, even so.... I still dont have the facilities for big neps
This macro is very special to me for what it is and what it meant to the owner.... very unfair and sneaky y'all LOL
buncha brats all of ya!
Macro potted up yesterday....
With my watering regime, I went with some Schultz Orchid mix I had laying around, a dab of LFS, a wee bit Seachem Flourite and top dressed with some red Sphag for good looks and microenviroment.
Placed it on my T8 rack... was afraid my T5 rack would have been a bit much more than it was use to with the minimal distance to fixture.
Temps should never exceed 72F where it is at and while no "fog", it is still relatively humid.
Figure it will need some time to acclimate, but hope it likes the new place
"My" first pitcher has opened....
please excuse the image quality.... ill get a nicer pic asap
Very nice butch, I know neps aren't your specialty, but you seem to be doing pretty darn good.
Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

The coloration on these things is mesmerizing!
I think you will find yourself hooked on Neps in time...
But then if you do... where does one go from here?
Seems you are starting at the top to begin with!
Perhaps a Hamata x Villosa or Eddy type perhaps?
(As always, nice plants Butch!)
Woohooo! That looks awesome!
Yer already a better Nepenthes grower than I am...
