First of all, great forum. I come here often and enjoy all the tutorials and pictures, it's very interesting and helpful.
Ok, so I'm in kind of a predicament. I bought an aquarium where I am currently keeping a couple species of Drosera seedlings, attempting to germinate some Sarracenia seeds (have been stratified), and also attempting to germinate several species of Nepenthes (izumiae germinated!!!!!!).
So, I ordered a Nepenthes viking sp., with the knowledge that it's a lowlander-intermediate species. I figured this wouldn't be a problem, seeing as how everything else in the terrarium is seedlings, and by the time it gets big enough (I was under the assumption that it was small...), I'd have something else figured out. Anyways, turns out the plant is HUGE! It is a very nice plant, but I think the shipping stressed it out. I also think it must have been hung up prior to me getting it. Basically, my concern is, I just don't know what to do with it! It's too big for the terrarium. The seller said that it likes bright, indirect sunlight. It's still cold here in Sask, Canada, but I considered hanging it in my bathroom, where it would get South facing sun and humidity from the shower.
I don't know exactly what to do here, if anyone has any advice or feedback, or experience with this plant (temperature, humidity), that would be fantastic. It's funny how I can read so much, but once I actually have the plant I start to second guess myself. I would love some feedback! What can I do?? What are my options?? Again, great forum!!
Also, if I refill the pitchers with a bit of RO water will they last longer?
