    I've recently got one of these and its doing great so far, but I'v only had it fro about 2 weeks. Mins just a baby with it being ong about 3" not including its tendrils/pitchers.

    Right now its substrate consist of just pur sphagnum and its fine.
    I would just like to know what conditions you guys are groing you northiana in. Mine is in typical lowland conditions, but is receiving constant high humidity.... roughly 80-85%


    So in what conditions are your guys N northianas in?

    sweet.....later

    Hey Flip, its very tough to grow because it hates environmental fluncatuations. Very high humidity, a shady spot, warm temps and a moist substrate are a must for this species.

    I realize its requierments as far as its needs.The place its sitting is going to stay there for ever untill its out grow its pot. Also luckily my chamer rarely fluctuates...

    I was just curious as to how others are treating there, in sense what mix they are in and if they have them in direct light or so on...

    Hey NG do you have a Northiana
    ?

    Hi Flip, yes I do. I've put it through the gates of ####, but I do have the species. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I've over heated it, dried it out and cooked it but finally after getting things right its starting to come around for me! It sits in my N. bicalcarata pot shaded by the big leaf shields. Humidity is fine and temp is a bit cool (75F) but as hot as I can get it.

    Hey FlipSide,
    I'm waiting for 1 to arrive.....I think (?) I've forgotten if I ordered it, but it is one that I have wanted to get for awhile so I assume I did order it. Something happened to the order and I've forgotten what I ordered now except I know I ordered a N.sumatrana.
    Anyways yeah I think I'll have one soon and it is a beautiful plant I love the flared peristome plants.
    I have no advice but I'm waiting for someone else to say something exciting [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    I have no idea how big it will be, Though I think you are right about the maturity. Let's play the waiting game [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Have no choice really except that it is worth the wait once the wait is over.
