    Yes, but I guess sometimes they don't set. And, thinking economically/hypothetically , Rob probably didn't want to risk another Robcantlyei harvest not to set, so they tried something else, e.g the N. Rajah x Veitchii BE sold to nurseries around Europe.

    Then I'm guessing one of the first ones that hit the market (?) Man that's pretty fast! What are you feeding them? I'm guessing perfect HL conditions helps as well. I can't wait till mine, if it ever, gets to that size.

    Just normal highland temps, it is not as fussy.
    I gave it Maxsea once a month, and it catches tons of slugs on its own (this pitcher already devoured 5 of them).
    Oh...genetic lottery helped too lol

    I need to get my hands on some Maxsea then. Do you fertilize it like one would do with the coffee method or are you mixing it with water and using it as foliar spray? I've never read up on using maxsea. Tried coffee though on some of my easier, hardier neps, quite pleased with the results.

    Used it as directed, directly applied to roots. Just a tiny bit each month, maybe two tablespoons worth while it is still smaller.
    Lately it has been gulping about half a cup or a cup since it has many basals.

    Ah man, even basals. I'm dying to see the whole plant now. May I be so bold as to ask for a picture of the whole plant? For me, the folliage is almost as important as the pitchers, almost. Even after a year, I still am amazed every time i look at the heart shaped leaves of my small n. truncata.
