    I will add that my ovata in the Ghouse have a reddish flushed yellow/green leaf color. So under high light they do appear somewhat oddly colored.

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

    OK, silly me - I finally got my PC up and running again, so I'm able to read out my digital camera and now simply can post a picture of the plant:



    It may also be that the clone around here is somewhat picky with its conditions, as i am not the only one here realizing N. ovata is more picky than much other species.


    And I do also love plants grown under good light conditions:



    Rob, and of course you are right - from the five producers of TC Nepenthes here in Germany only one does grow his plants in a greenhouse for some years before selling them.

    Hi Joachim,

    The photo tells a lot. It looks to me as if the newest leaf on your N. ovata are considering prodicing pitchers for you. The older leaves look to me to be, well, kind of sick. Possibly the shock of transplanting.

    I can also see from the reddish hue on the leaves of your "N. gracillima" (it it true N. gracillima by the way?) that you are supplying plenty of light.

    Cheers,

    Hi Rob,

    many thanks for your comments on the N. ovata. The leafes all start nicely but then turn to what you see.

    From the description from Jebb and Cheek and also from Clarke I do think the N. gracillima should be labeled correct. Pitcher detail:

    Any comments welcome! I do think the plant I bought as N. ramispina is also in fact a N. gracillima (pictures are at on my WWW-page, see link below).

    Joachim

    P.S.: Did my Email made it through to you - I think there is a typo in your Email setting at the forum?

    Hmm the new leaves do look healthy, while the old ones seem to be suffering a bit. Like the root system is not quite up to par. Perhaps try a more sphagnum based mix or all sphagnum? Looks like it is in a fairly dense mix.

    I will add that ovata for me isn't the worlds fastest growing plant but once it gets well established it can show a very substantial increase in size with each leaf.
