    Thanks everyone.

    Dino,
    Fusca is a funny one for me. I actually find it quite slow growing. No idea why. However, I do love the look of the pitchers on this Sarawak form.

    Joe,
    Had to look up etiolated [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    You thinks so? Which one as I can't see it?

    Other than the Ephippiata having one yellowing leaf, that will most likely die off and is normal anyway, they all look in OK condition with average/good leaf colouration to me. Sure, there is room for improvement but they have most likely been through a pretty tough time given that the Q facilities wouldn't be set up 'specifically' for Neps.

    I'd imagaine they would just have a glasshouse/s for ALL tropical plants. I do know that quite a few of the L/L plants were lost in quarantine where as the H/L came through quite well.

    They have all been in quarantine together for somewhere around 2-3 months and by the looks of the white residue, treated with something.

    Julian,
    Don't we all love getting a box of new Neps (I have another due this week and one next week). However, what I like even more than potting up the new plants, is when the new plants form their first new leaf and first new pitcher once in my care. It's like a confirmation you're on track for that plant.

    Aaron.

    Aaron,

    The diatas "Meadow Form". It looks viney already, which it may be.

    Julian,

    Where do you get N. platychila? Not that I grow highlanders with much success at the moment, but I am just curious.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Finch, not so! There are several easy beginner neps out there. Get your hands on a N. x 'Ventrata.' They're really forgiving of newbie mistakes.
