    Ah ok I see now. A special climate without extreme changes in atmospheric conditions.

    I thought you grew all your plants in growrooms/chambers in your basement under HID lighting? I never knew you had a greenhouse outdoors. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Hi Erick,

    When we got this plant, it was about 3 cm in diameter.
    I don't remember what it cost, but it wasn't very much.

    Hi Jeff,

    this is by far the best looking N. northiana pitcher on a cultivated plant I've ever seen! Thanks for sharing this pic.

    Dustin, from my experience deformed pitcher lids are also mostly due to humidity issues. I don't think few minutes under lower humidity will cause such a damage, but longer periods of time will do this for sure. The plant looks like it is still adjusting to its new home with considerable lower light levels than previously (bigger leafes&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]. I would wait for the next pitchers to be grown and won't worry too much about the last one.

    HI Joachim!

    The light levels are moderate, it's 4-5 inches (10-13cm) away from a fluorescent geowbulb that lights the entire tank. So light levels aren't that low but I say, it is a very nice easy growing plant! Very easy to grow and pitcher for me. Got it free too from Mike Catalani, it was a test shipment from Malesiana Tropicals and he had like 10 pots of free stuff and this N. northiana was one of them and he said hey, I have some freebies for you! I was quite intrigued to find this one in the box after the flight home! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It's been a while since I picked up on this thread.

    Ummm... I'm probably not going to be popular for saying this, but Dustin, are you sure that plant is N. northiana? Leaf shape doesn't look right to me, rather too broad, especially at the base. Another couple of photos would be useful. Perhaps it's just the growing conditions.

    Jeff, your photo stuns me every time I look at it. Just days before, I put a photo of a N. northiana pitcher on my home page of a 4" tall pitcher that I thought was quite good, but that pitcher of yours just blows me away. Do you ever exhibit your plants?

    Thanks, I'm really glad that you like the photo! I've
    written an article for CPN about this plant and my experiences
    with it; the article should appear in either the March or June
    issue this year. I wrote it over a year ago, but the lead time
    to publication is quite long....

    Rob, I don't exhibit my plants, but if you ever get over
    to the US again, you're surely welcome to drop in! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
