    im currently growing a N. 'Miranda' and 2 N. ventricosa. the 'Miranda' is currently about 1.5' in diameter and producing 5"-6" tall pitchers like mad. the lips(i forget the scientific term) are turning a wonderful maroon. ill try to get some pics up this week. the ventricosa(i think thats what they are called, they are lowes plants) are 5"-6" in diameter and growing fast and are putting off 1"-1.5" pitchers like crazy. the leaves are all getting a reddish tint to them, this is good right? anyways the pitchers on the 'Miranda' are as abouut as awesome as any of my orchids. also the U. livida that a member here was nice enough to send me is flowering like mad after completly filling a 4 inch pot in 2 months from just a lil bunch of plants. also teh pygmy sundews that Tamlin sent me are growing beautifully. arent CP's the best!

    Close DD it's peristome. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] Glad to hear your Nepenthes are doing good. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] N. x Miranda is a WONDERFUL hybrid and certainly one of the most stunning i've ever seen. The reddish tint is god, shows your plants are getting plenty of good light.

    Pitchers on my N. emmarene have gotten 15-18 cm for lowers and so far 10 cm on uppers. The vine length/overall height is pretty much indefinate if you use a stake to support it and make sure nothing happens to the growing tip.
