Yeee Haaaw. I just scored a very, very nice N. Coccinea from a local garden store this morning…actually two in one attractive six inch hanging pot. *They have an…18” wingspan, 24” from top leaf to bottom of lowest pitcher, the two biggest pitchers are slightly over 6”…darned near as fat as a coke can and with very nice color. *When I looked at the price I couldn't get my money out fast enough.
Right now I have it hanging under my awning about three feet from the “sun line”.
My questions are:
Should it get direct sun?
Should I attempt to separate the two plants?
Will the constant 5 to 10 knot breeze we get here in S. FL harm it?
I doubt they will catch any food in a hanging configuration, so what can I feed it?
The instructions say to fill the pitcher about half full of water…is that correct?
Any other tips on keeping these guys healthy would be appreciated.
It is the prize of my collection along with my Bical...which by the way...should I treat the Bical the same way?
