    I have 6 new additions to my nep corner... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    N.truncata
    N.rafflesiana
    N.bicalcurata
    N.albomarginata
    N.alata
    N.rewardtiana

    Are they comparable with n.gracilis, n.ampullaria and n.mirabilis? These 3 grows comfortably at my windowsill.

    Hi Cindy,
    I'm having great luck with my Truncata and my Bicalcurata.

    Truncata: Fairly humid (around 75-80 percent), warm all the time (80 to 90 degrees) under four flourescent bulbs. I actually forget what medium I have it in....I think it's in pure LFS, but I'll check when I get home. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] I keep the medium moist, but not soggy. It is a slow grower for a lowlander, but oh-so-gratifying when it pitchers.

    Bical: Very humid (close to 100%), very hot (over 90) under four flourescents. Soil is 1:1:1:1:1 (well, I mixed it by eye, this ratio was my goal) of pete/LFS/perlite/orchid bark/charcol. I don't think I need all that stuff, but I was so low on soil mediums I couldn't fill the pot without mixing all that stuff. Turns out the plant is really happy. I keep it on the tray method, but I allow all the water to evaporate before adding more. I also only put about 1/4 inch of water in the tray. It seems to like it really soggy. I have it in with my Ampularia and Mirabilis (both of which started doing well as soon as I put them in these conditions).

    I hope that helps. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    My truncata is dying!!! While removing a dead leaf just now, I noticed that the base of the stem has turned brown and is rotting away... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] This is my first truncata...

    Anyone knows how to save it? Tissue culture

    I got it online so the nursery will not replace it immediately but credit to my next order. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    ARG! That stinks! You could try clipping off the rotted part and treating it as a cutting...That might work [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
    Maybe someone else has a better suggestion...
