    Unhappy

    I was wondering how I was doing on my nep.

    It seems happy, and the color looks good, but I don't know what the max is on size--should I expect still larger pitchers?

    The ventricosa is maxing out at about 2-2.5 inches per pticher, and is growing a lot slower than the Finn (I have not repotted this one).

    I have seen larger pithcers on J.Finn, but they do grow slow. A method of producing larger pitchers is by allowing the forming pitcher to lay on a bed of live sphagnum moss.

    I think they can get up to 12". N.Ventricosa should get bigger pitchers. Maybe ou should give it a little to eat and wait a while.

    I have had one for 6 months, and they are barely topping 2, so your doing great.

    Once they get going, N. x Judith Finn seems to grow much larger with each leaf. After a little over a year, mine prodiced a 9" pitcher (right after a 5" one) and it has more forming now. The leaves have grown quite a bit larger even after the 9" pitcher, so I get a feeling it'll be a big plant once it's full grown. It has gotten a bit too big though, the leaves are huge, some more than a foot long.

    OK Josh--

    If I can get the local digital camera from work I will do it! The peristome is red, but only on the more recent, larger pitchers. I think patterning and coloration will change as new pitchers come in.

    Yeah--the vent just managed to get some food last week.

    I am looking forward to giant pitchers. I cannot imagine this thing that large!
