    got this little guy, it was almost dead. I have had it on the window sill for a couple of months, with some good light and good water, this guy has made a full recovery. It is growing like crazy with 65 degree nights.

    Wow! Really nice plant. Looks like it's happy where you have it. I can't wait to see pictures of it when it becomes a monster and you have to keep the kids away, lest you loose one.

    Thanks
    I know truncatas are very common, but I really like them. I think they have it all. I like the way the plant is "built" the pitchers get big, and so far, it really is my easiest plant.

    Beautiful plant Machete! And about truncata being common, that depends on perspective. I spent 5 months trying to find one to buy. I finally got it, but it was not commonly found.

    I love yours, you have done a great job! Congratulations!!!!!

    truncatas are awesome. I love how fast they grow. Mine just opened up a pitcher thats about 6 inches. The one before that, was only 3 inches. it takes big steps to say the least.

    Truncatas are great. Nice save Machete! It looks like it likes the windosill pretty well. You might have a monster on your hands before too long.

    Totally sweet! I see the pitcher joins at the back. Tell me that's not an upper pitcher!

    My truncata isn't my fastest grower, but the guy makes huge strides with each new leaf.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.
