    Hi,

    I received a new shipment of plants yesterday. N. mira is one of them. All the thin leaves have this wrinkled up look. It has been kept in shade.

    Does it like its media to be dry or wet? Like sun or shade. Please advise.

    Hi Choong,

    N.mira appears to be a typical highlander in my care so far. It's sending up a flower stalk as a matter of fact right now. If you just got it in I would keep it in mild conditions, lower than normal light levels, high humidity, moist media and mild temperatures perhaps intermediate. If you prefer, I could grab a photo of my plant.


    Good luck!

    Dustin,

    I think I would be cool to see your plant in flower, maybe when it opens up.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Joe, here's my plant as of today. You can see the flower stalk coming up on it showing itself near the center in the pic as a white colored cluster atop a short stalk.

    Thanks to you both.

    Joe, finally it's adapted to the greenhouse from 10/11/03 till now so it's taken 5 months and 6 days to acclimate and start to inflate it's second pitcher, of course it's flowering too which may contribute to slow growth and the winter season is still here. But I have got 4 leafes out of it in that time period.

    That's not too bad for an adjusting plant.
