    Hello

    "Are you growing it in pure LFS, or is there some orchid bark I can see there?"

    When I first got it I potted it up into a 2:1:1/2 mix of LFS, orchid bark and Dina rock (Hydroton) nuked for a few minutes. When I transplanted I left the roots and soil alone and put it in 100% live LFS.

    BTW it has not quite been 1 year yet I got it 6-3-03, I just checked my records I was thinking it was May 3rd.

    thanks
    -Jeremiah-

    Hi Jeremiah,

    very impressive growth of your plant, which looks very healthy indeed! The peristome looks very interesting as Tony already mentioned. It'll be interesting to see how it developes when being bigger. The teeth and the width of the peristome resemble N. x Trusmadiensis:

    Uh-oh...I see where Tony and Joachim are going.
    I thought those only came from Andreas Wistuba(not that he is the first to collect seed that turned out to be hybrid-and what a hybrid to get!) as one of his two clones of N. macrophylla.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Beautiful plant! Isn't that REALLY fast for a highlander to grow? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]
    By the way, I've heard that mac's don't mind being grown as highlanders (as aposed to ultra-highlanders)...(if you're curious, I read it on the nepethes university site here )

    Anyone agree/disagree?

    Well I don't want to say too much at this point because it is still a guess. However I have plants half the size which show wider spaced and higher ridges on the peristomes. N. trusmadiensis seedlings about the size Jeremiah has look very much like the picture Joachim posted and from what I can see are very similiar to Jeremiah's plant. If I recall correctly there have been other cases of N. macrophylla from Wistuba coming up as N. trusmadiensis. \

    Time will tell...

    Both look very nice to me...

    Does anyone grow both trusmadiensis and macrophylla? I'm curious if trusmadiensis is easier to grow...

    Yes and yes

    N. trusmadiensis is much easier and grows noticebly quicker (for me anyway).
