    Never seen an aristo upper before, that's pretty cool. What kind of conditions, lighting, etc. is it growing in?

    Nice growing, Ron. I almost lost the papa plant. I'm starting over from a tiny growth point.

    I love how the lid of the aristolochioides looks like it fits perfectly with the pitcher. It's almost like someone opened up that part of the pitcher. It would be interesting to know whether or not the lid blends in with the rest of the pitcher until it opens.

    Except for a few 'experiments' on a windowsill & another few in an upstairs tank, 98% of my plants live in the basement in tanks. Most are under T-5's but there are still a few under T-8's. Summer temps can reach the low 80's inside some tanks but usually mid to upper 70's. Winter - upper 60's to low 70's although with this crazy polar weather, they're lucky to see middle 60's. Nights usually see a 6-12*F drop.

    I also have this very real fear. The vine keeps growing but is extremely skinny & the leaves turn brown quicker than I would expect. The plant had a 'Y' in the vine when I received it. I took one side as a cutting but it didn't take. I suspect that when it crashes, it will be gone. My female plant has a thicker vine and produced a number of basal shoots when the vine crashed - but it didn't have the nasty wooden vine this one has. I keep meaning to start a thread for advice...

    Do you give your plant fertilizer? If your plant has a well developed root system, some nutrients, good temperatures and strong light, there is no reason it shouldn't be strong and able to make new shoots (unless you have a weak clone). You shouldn't have to worry about the loss of one shoot killing the plant.
