    In mid-January, I received my first Nepenthes in the mail. Unfortunately, it was 15 degrees outside and the postman left it on the porch even though it was marked perishable. These photos show the progress from Jan. 18 through Mar. 14. There are a total of FIVE new growth points! Does this mean it is going to be a HUGE plant?

    I am shocked and greatly satisfied because of this new growth. I had almost written the whole plant off!

    Looks very happy. Should be a "bush" type plant eventually. See, it pays to save plants that look questionable.

    Wow, talk about over reacting to stress, lol. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I'm sure it will be nice looking once it grows out a bit more. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hey,

    I can't see your pictures. In the future, can you give the filenames extensions, like .jpg, or .gif or whatever they are.

    What exactly do you mean by "bush"? Do you mean that it will become too big for a 20 gallon tank? Or will it want to invade an oil rich country?

    I think he means that the multiple growth points will result in a nice large "bushy" plant eventually. Rather than one long stem, it will have 3 or 4.
