    George, no kidding! The closed any of mine come to a week would have to be from Nep G.'s namesake. They're in the neighborhood of 10 days to 2 weeks.

    schloaty, N.gracilis is a fast grower but, really never paid attention on how fast it does put out growth. the one cutting i got goes back and forth into shock due to a bunch of stuff. like changing soil mix, being knocked over 2-3 times and other stuff. so at least now i don't have to worry about it falling over caused i moved it to a diff. spot in the porch. it is slow at rooting thu. i have tried it in just water like i read it could but, it kept it alive but never grew any.

    Hi,

    lowland N. truncata pitchers do stay fully functional about four to six months after opening. This depends on growth conditions not feeding (Of course overfeeding will cause the pitcher to rot). After this time the lid and upper half of the pitchers do die back. The lower still functional half will last more than a year. My highland N. truncata is too young to tell pitcher life cycles yet.

    There maybe a clone of truncata that seems to have this behavior. I saw one years ago at a friend's place, and he remarked that it only sports one pitcher at a time. Didn't think much about it, but I have heard several people make such comments.

    Regards,

    Joe
