    Highland conditions. This plant seems to be more sensitive to burning with fertilizer or less than ideal water. Also appears to prefer slightly less intense light than I give most of my plants.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hi,

    N. xiphoides is an easy but slow grower from my experience. My plant is grown under high light levels which of course may be the cause for the slow growth. In contrast to Tony's experience my plant can handle foliar feeding with no ill effects. I usually mist my plants with teh foliar fertilizer in the evening hours and mist them again heavily with pure water before sun hits them the next morning. N. villosa, N. macrophylla and N. inermis got heavily burned when I didn't do this.

    Cheers Joachim
