    Help, something is wrong with my N. talangensis

    as you can see, it's put out two beautiful pitchers. But recently the two newest growth point has been slow to develop.

    The first picture was taken on 1/18 and the other pictures was just taken right now 2/9. I am not sure how long it took for the last two pitches to develop but I don't remember it being this long. I have to say the bottom part of the new growth has inflated a little but... ya

    What should i do? the condition of the terrarium hasn't changed. The only thing was I fed the other pitcher some blood warms and I gave it a trim. During the trimming process I kind of pushed the plant a little bit.

    Help and thanks!!

    what are your conditions? I know some nepenthes in my care responded this way in the long run when I did not drop the temperatures low enough at night.

    I would advise that you chill out because your plant appears to be fine. Just leave it alone and it should start growing again. Some highlanders (especially pure species), can be a little finicky about their willingness to keep growing whenever and wherever.

    Yup, I dont really see anything wrong with it.. I know my N. sibuyanesis does this, even though it has perfect HL conditions.

    N. talangensis is notorious for being a very slow grower, finicky about humidity and temperatures, and sometimes is just temperamental about pitcher production. This is one that requires great patience.
    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.
