    Hi Jeff,

    I don't doubt that you grow your N. datas beautifully but have you really found it necessary to grow them in an ultrahighland chamber? I'm asking because we grow them in highland conditions (13 - 25 deg. C) and they seem fine but I feel that the pitchers could be larger.

    Oh yes, and when are you going to write a book on cultivation [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I'm afraid I have found it necessary to grow my
    specimen of N. diatas in very cool conditions.
    Overnight lows of 13 to 14 C were just not cool
    enough for the plant I have. It simply never
    pitchered under my standard highland conditions.
    I don't believe that my plant came from you, so
    perhaps it is from a higher, and therefore cooler,
    location....

    Well, speaking of N. diatas plants from Rob..... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]



    This is the "meadow form" type. Are these seed growns Rob? Thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Whoops! I can spell "diatas" - really [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    That's interesting info Jeff. The plants we have come from the same place as yours I believe, the meadow on the top of Mt. Bandahara. We're growing them OK, in fact Tony posted a photo on his home page of the pitcher on a plant he had just received from us, but as I said earlier, I feel the pitchers on our plants in the nursery have not reached their size potential. We are sourcing a large evaporative cooler, much like the one used by Geoff Mansell which should help drop the temperatures a lot and we'll try N. diatas in front of that.

    Nice pitcher Dustin! Yes, that plant was almost certainly seed grown. We're now offering specific clones from TC but the first ones we shipped were raised from seed. If you tell me where you purchased it I can check my records to be sure.

    Yes, someone gave me an image of that species, and I edited it digitally to produce the avatar. I think it makes a nice avatar, really.
