    Unhappy

    I was wondering if any of you do some sort of winterizing for indoor window sill Neps. All my Neps are in windows over heaters, does anyone do special things for their Neps in these situations?
    Can anyone see such marvelous things, knowing them to be only plants and feel no wonder?

    Nope nada. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The onyl think I noticed with my Truncata way back when it was a windowsiller is that the pitcher stops completely and leaf production was extremely reduced. But plants liek Khasiana or Ventricosa might just slwo down but should continue pitchering. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I try and keep a spray bottle around, and spray them a little more often, but that's about it. Some actually seem to grow a little faster over the winter, such as stenophylla and possibly fusca, though it's probably just the cooler temperatures.
