    miranda cultivation

    hey guys now my miranda has never grown well for me for some reason but it had many growth points so i think it didnt get enough nutrients because it never pitchered. So now my miranda has put out ten new growth points at the same time but its pitchering for the first time. I have started fertilising a week ago but the pitchers are slightly older.

    Do you think that if i fertilise heavily (relatively speaking) i could let it keep all its growth points and have it produce nice large pitchers? Im also going to increase the humidity substantially

    Don't worry about humidity so much as lighting. This plant can easily take full sun, and will reward you for it. I had one in conditions of full shade and 10% humidity for about 10 months, only after I put it into higher light levels did it produce any pitchers over 2 inches tall.
    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 what Miranda does. It's a massive plant, so prepare for a monster. Quite long tendrils, too.

    Hey Kev, I kept my miranda outdoors all summer in dappled sun and the leaves never blushed but it did pitcher nicely in spite of our hot drought conditions this year. At the end of Oct I moved it indoors into a tent greenhouse and, due mostly to reduced light I suspect, it "aborted" the pitchers that were inflating but the nicer pitchers that were open already are going strong. I guess if it's starting to pitcher for you you may want to keep it's conditions consistant untill it gets a few open just in case. Here is before/after pics:

    Outdoors for a few months and it went out with no pitchers
