    Do you have a picture Josh? Something sounds odd about what you're describing.

    Yeah even my little 4inch leaf plant shows a little signs of a over size peristome. Btw is it typical for an echin to have a crappy leaf to pitcher ratio?

    Hi there,

    first thanks for your answers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Rob, that'll be great when the pitchers get the throns on the peristome!! The humidity is always about 70%, so my plant got used to this climate. Anyway I think the species is a very slow grower and gets hardly used to a new climate! I got the plant from Uwe Westphal and, you are right (how do you guess??), as a seed grown plant.

    Josh, the plant is about 2-3 years old and a lot smaller than one foot in height! Perhaps you bought a plant, which was falsely identificated? That'd be bad [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] !

    IceDragon you are right! The leaf is about 30cm big and the pitcher 12cm. The plant is certainly the opposite to Ne. hamata! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    When will be Ne. mirabilis 'echinostoma' Ne. echinostoma again!

    Cheers,
    Max

    As they grow up they look more like a corn stalk than a typical Nepenthes. They get large and the pitchers get large. Plus, they have huge root systems. Give them lots of room.
    Also, from amongst Rob's seed raised plants there have been some nice almost solid red variants. The color variety reminds me of rafflesiana.

    Oh yeah how cool of temps can these plants take? I'm thinking of moving mine into a temporary heated terr. It's about 60-75 now a days...

    Oh that's just poopy, my N. mirabilis Echinostoma from Wistuba is surely not an Echinostoma at all then! The leaves are quite short about a 1/1 ratio) lemme see if I have a pic:



    The peristome hasn't gotten much wider than in the above older pic, the side get a nice flush but I keep waiting on the persitome and nothing ever happens. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    I sure hope the N. neoguineensis I'm getting from them in the mail next week really is and isn't just a green ampullaria or something!
