I have had under my care a Nepenthes tentaculata for quite a while. This is one of my favorite plants, and I'd like to have it grow to its fullest potential.
I recently saw this picture, and thought maybe I should be doing better:
Here is an overview of my plant:
Also, here are closeups of the side shoots if that is important.
And a developing pitcher for good measure:
You can see that it has divided several times. Am I doing something wrong? Why is it dividing? Is it under stress?
All of these plants see temps of 25-27C during the day, and 5-15 C during the night, with 80% humidity during the day (not sure about the night - I'm sleeping). There was a time when I was really busy, and was unable to put ice in the terrarium at night, but this plant seemed to chug along.
So my questions are:
Is the long period without ice why the plant is developing slowly?
Is this long period likely why it has divided so many times?
What can I do to make it grow faster (and resemble the first picture I posted)?
And any tips in general would also be appreciated.
Thank you very much,
(Apologies for including so many pictures, I didn't want to leave anything out)
