    The bical x gracilis hybrid is called a N cantleyi, and I've heard that the fangs are absent.
    I m quite a newbie to neps as compared to my experience with VFT.
    I've invested quite a bit on my lowland nep setup. I got 3 misters with auto timers as well as a digital hygrometer and thermometer to get the conditions right. I dont keep them in a terrarium but rather a brightly lit(indirect sunlight) enclosure.

    Looks nice.

    Curious though why it took a year to get a pitcher. Either the plant was in really bad shape when you got it or something isn't quite right. Can you give some details on temperatures day/night. Humidity levels and type and amount of lighting and distance to the plants?

    I guess the plant was recovering from a shock due to shipping and handling. It may also be trying to adapt to it new environment.
    temperatures day/night: 31C/26C
    Humidity levels: 60-85
    type and amount of lighting: diffused natural sunlight(transparent roof)

    Are these conditions okay for a lowland setup?

    Temperatures and moisture sound fine.

    I am guessing that perhaps the light is not bright enough. How is the light hitting the roof of the chamber? Through a window? Is it outside sitting in the sun?? Can you describe more please.

    Thank,
    Tony

    I think if the light was insufficient the pitcher wouldn't have that coloration. Immature N. bicalcarata often have fangs that aren't fully developed. The N. bicalcarata x gracilis doesn't have fangs although the mature pithcers have vestigal fangs like little bumps.

    I guess the moisture is not enough since most of the other tendril ends seem to be burnt.
    I'm in the process of setting up an overhead misting system, i hope it will help improve on the humidity.
    As for water timers, what brands do you guys use? (i've been asking this qn for 3 times, and have yet to get an answer.) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
