    Nepenthes villosa

    I finally received an email that the villosa will be shipping shortly, I didn't mind waiting considering the weather here in the Midwest. I can think of no better reason to get that cooling chamber than getting this plant.

    Don't worry, I can't wait to crow in color. Since villosa is so excruciatingly slow growing I will be using a thermal wine cooler for a while for the small handful of cold loving neps. I am expecting a plant around the size of a dime.

    Here it is, arrived this afternoon and is a little bigger than I expected. After potting and shooting pictures and as with all new arrivals I placed the bottom of a small Pepsi bottle over the top and after a few days until it gets used to the new environment the cover comes off:

    The nep in the upper left corner of this picture is the diatas with a new pitcher.

    Thank you and the German shop has them available again for anyone wanting one.
    It's about 1.3" across and yes, I was expecting a dime size plant. Sure is green isn't it, now I will see if I can keep it that way. Next stop is for a wine cooler and I am specifically shopping for one that provides a 45 degree capable minimum. I think I found one that a 2.5 gallon aquarium will fit in so I can maintain 100% humidity without icing up the cooling chip. If it doesn't work then I will try a dorm fridge and will worry about plant size a few years from now.
