    Nice pics! I have that same amp from CC. Isn't it a great one? Mine grows like crazy in pretty much household conditions, and makes 4 inch pitchers, even though it's in cool temperatures. It's also survived some considerable neglect, so it's a real hardy clone, as well as good looking.

    Yes, it is a beautiful clone and will take a beating. I put it outside under some white gauze with our strawberries during the hot southern summers (north carolina) and it got burnt pretty bad, but it came RIGHT back when I brought it back inside. Here are more pics of the vines of both N. Ampularia and N. Albomarginata.




    Arms Reaching for light! The amp has made it to the second level of the chamber, making a bridge up top for the ants.

    my amp looks the same as yours but must not be as hardy as it doesnt like normal household conditions, it likes it hot and really humid. i wish it would start making basal pitchers. it and my bical x amp are in a contest on who can make the bigger pitcher even though the hybrid is half the size of the amp.

    Don't your plants eat all the ants from the ant colony by the way? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    The chamber is 3 feet tall, two tears, the first tear is egg crate on a wood frame so light goes to the bottom. The ants are still hangin around, they multiply quite fast and move around a lot. I feed them as well. They are very amazing creatures, I recomend finding an anthill and just sit and observe their behaviour.


    Feeding time. They LOVE frozen crickets, and of course Nep dew.
