    Hi,

    after three years of growth my N. sibuyanensis has finally produced the first pitcher I really like [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The pitcher is about 5 cm in height and the diameter of the plant is around 15 cm.

    I think it looks very nice. N. sibuyanensis is one of my favorite Nepenthes. Just curious, roughly how long are the tendrils on yours at the moment? And do you have a BE clone, or a plant from another source?

    Thank you,
    Pat

    Great looking pitcher Joachim [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] And with a nice backdrop giving an almost wild environment feel..

    Have you changed you conditions for this species since you have been growing it? More or less light?
    Mine is still a slow grower, with the first couple of pitchers produced this year just lasting a short time before going black [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I am hoping as summer progress's they will last a bit longer and get larger (fingers crossed!!).

    cheers

    Joachim,

    You have the patience of an Ent ( J.R.R. Tolkien reference-Treant to all you D&D players out there) !
    Nice work.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Hi,

    many thanks for your kind comments.

    Patrick, the tendrils are less than 10 cm long. I got this plant from Joachim Nerz, so chances are high that Andreas sells similar clones (they often travel together).

    Bill, the plant is still sitting in a less bright spot of my terrarium although Rob and others mentioned that very high light levels should be better. This plant grows very small, I think it is only the second pitcher this year...

    Joe, what is an ENT - could I feed it to my plants? (Sorry only have read 'Hobbit' many years ago...)

    Cheers Joachim

    Ents are giant "tree" like creatures, that take 8 hours to say "hello, how are things?" and reply, "Doing fine" [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
    "the patience of an Ent" is a quote from treebeard

    BTW, nice sib! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I just noticed the pitcher is sitting on some LFS. Do you think that helped with pticher growth?
