I'm new to this forum, although I've been on the CP Listserve for a while. *I like what I've seen so far! *For those of you who don't know me - my name is Amori Watanabe and I'm a 19 year old with an undying affinity for plants and wildlife.
Back to the topic. *I bought a N. campanulata x veitchii plant from Cook's Carnivorous Plants (Orig. MT - Clone NE-97A) a few months ago, as a "3 inch potted". *Was I surprised when I dug through the last pieces of packaging! *I received a 9" plant, with one 2" pitcher. *Anyhow, I stuck it *into my lowland terrarium. *The pitcher that was on the plant looked like an eloganted campanulata pitcher with a less flared opening. *It was plain green and died within a few days in my conditions, but the plant seemed to boost its growth after repotting and applying fertiliser to the soil (BioGold - I'll post something on this later if anyone is interested). *New pitchers started to develop, and increased in size with each one. *As you can see in the picture below, the pitchers get much larger than straight campanulatas, and are more colourful. *The peristome seems to become a little thicker with each pitcher too, thanks to the veitchii "blood" [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] . *Note the underside of the lid: looks alot like that of N. veitchii x lowii, don't you think? *So far, it has proved to be a true lowlad hybrid. *I need to get a camera with better macro features... *Good Growing!
