    Thumbs up

    Hey everyone, my argetii just came in the mail. It was shipped potted, which was a nice surprise. Anyway, I read on ********/nepenthes University that this species should be put in a WIDE pot so the tendrils could reach into the medium, otherwise pitchers would not develop. Is this really true, or will the bud swell without first burrowing?

    You could always put the pot in the middle of your other pots to do some tendril/pot sharing... Just my $0.02

    I do the pot within a pot thing. Plant your argentii in a pot just big enough for it alone, then put this pot in a larger pot filled with spahgnum.

    Just wondering how your N. argentii is getting on? We don't find that the tendrils need to burrow in order for pitchers to form. We grow them in 3" dia. pots and the tendrils hang down the outside of the posts with pitchres forming as with most other Neps.

    Hi all:

    Believe it or not, i wanted to raise this point many months ago. I have a couple of small argentii and these love warm weather. Again, typical of the philippines species. In Winter, they don't pitcher, while other highlands do.

    I also wanted to say that I agree with Rob 300%.

    Here is the proof:

    Does that mean it will grow well as an intermediate?
