I figured if the waiting list takes about 2 years, this one would be a lot bigger by then. Besides, he already went through the risk of establishing it. So that kinda justifies the increased price.

    It has been in my care for almost a year in a modified cold chamber outlined by Jeff Shafer. The setup includes CO2 supplementation, four 4' T5 6400K bulbs which is on for 14 hours/day, an internal fan and a humidifier. Temp remains consistently at 70 day and 50 night; humidity 75% day and 99% night. It has more than tripled in size in that time sending out about 1 leaf/month.

    Here are some of its toothy neighbors...

    N. macrophylla BE




    N. hamata AW Clone 4


    N. villosa BE

    How long have you been growing the BE villosa and BE macrophylla? My BE macro is about 5x's the size of yours, but so slow.. Wondering about how old mine might be.
    Wish it grew as fast as my BE villosa.

    There are no words to describe my amazement at the health and beauty of these plants.

    I haven't had them long. Got them from Tony in mid-February. Although both are growing, you can tell by the size of the newer leaves that the macro is growing much faster. The one that I don't seem to have much success is rajah. It is sloooooooooow!
