    Dustin,
    Are you the one that got the special plant that Tony was offering a while back? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/blues.gif[/img] I wanted that one, but I feared I would run out of room quite quickly... NICE PLANT!!

    Darcie, yeah it is pretty typical and the time has gone by quite quickly as I have so many other Nepenthes to look at. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    L man, uh..no. I bought this one it's a German clone. As for room...Tony has an enormous N. mira I am very excited to own this species. I belive his has like a 2 foot leaf span with like 4 inch diameter 6 inch tall pitchers, or bigger last I saw it that was around the measurment.

    Whoa! My N. mira is going to get that big I better make some more room. Mine also just opened its first pitcher, which is pretty small. I'm happy with its growth so far, however. There are a couple more pitchers on the way. I'd guess my leaves are 2 inches at best right now, and the pitcher is about 3/4 inch.

    Aw, what the heck, I'll take a quick pic, even though it's not that impressive. Incidentally, I got this on Ebay a few months ago for a very good price:

    L, man what are you trying to say? I don't own that plant, it's TONY'S. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Capslock, just for reference....




    Unfortunately I do not have a photo of the whole plant.

    I just got confused, because a few months ago, he was selling a 14" N. mira for a large sum, and I just guessed that that was the one... Sorry for any confusion.

    Hi,

    N. mira is one of the few very difficult plants for me. - In fact I only killed one Nepenthes last year, a N. mira which died after repotting. From my experience N. mira requires very high humidity to grow well and does best in pure LFS. The soil shouldn't be kept to wet.

    Cheers Joachim

    P.S.: Very nice plant Dustin!!

    Joachim, Thank you firstly [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]. Secondly, you say it requires high humidity perhaps this is true when it is smaller or did you have a larger plant? My humidity is in the 55% and higher range all the time generally i's pretty decent but the highest it usually gets is around 80% but the mean is around 60% and even 70% if I'm lucky.
