Lithopsman, N. glabrata is fairly fast, Mine has really taken off since I gave it full sunlight (removed the 60% shade cloth).
Trent, yup sibuyanensis is happy as long as it's not in lowland conditions. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] So far, it appears to be a happy camper. I'm crossing my N. x rokko with N. x gentle. We shall see if it is successful which I am praying for! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
Howdy Josh, yes it's in a square hanging pot (I make my own, just slit the rim with a knife and insert the clip). Anywho, that pitcher is approx. 2.5 cm tall. The pitcher buds are minute! About .5 cm tall. Maybe a little bigger by a micrometer maybe. The color gets more vivid as it ages, but yes the tiny pitchers on younger plants (when mine was a 7cm diameter plant) are quite colorful if they get alot of light. Mine only had faint streaks but when it was moved to the greenhouse it still made a few polymorphic pitchers that were very appealing, since then it's a weed...about 15cm tall and 18cm in diameter and rapidly going to exceed that soon! And now the more mature pitchers are being produced, many hanging and a few resting in the pot. It really is a beautiful plant without the pitchers, very graceful.
For the N. rajah, I haven't had any great sucess with pitchers being formed in the air as it's size now, when it was a 8cm plant the pitchers did form in the air but now since it's larger, I feel that I will obtain better results if I try to mimic the "on the ground" scenario. If a tendril does however happen to shoot off the designated mossed area I will let it go to see what mine will do, the next leaf may do that as it is quite large right now and not unfurled or even started to and it's about 16cm long. We shall see and thanks for your input on your plant!
