    In my care, this species has responded well to typical highland conditions: temps 30 C daytime, 12 C overnight, high humidity, good lighting with a 13 hour photoperiod, watering every two days with purified water, and an acidic compost consisting of roughly equal parts of peat moss, horticultural charcoal, and fine orchid bark.

    Hi,

    in addition to Jeff's tips I do suggest to use a good portion of LFS as soil incredient. My plants did grow much better in soils with LFS than without LFS.

    P.S.: I do still find it hard to believe, N. xiphoides (left) and N. gymnamphora (right) should be the same species:

    Is N. pectinata still considered a synonym of N. gymnamphora? I noticed Joachim's pitchers are quite dark(maybe too dark to be considered purple), besides the enormous size difference between that plant and his N. xiphiodes.

    Regards,

    Joe

    What's with using celcius? Do you use cm instead of inches, too? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] j/k

    This is waaay off topic, but in answer to the question, yes, I do use metric measurements consistently (or at least try to do so). This is because the vast majority of the world's people use this system, and because I feel it is patently absurd that the US does not do so as well.
