    Thought some of you might enjoy seeing the attached image of
    an N. northiana upper pitcher. This was produced by my largest
    plant, the female specimen which I've been growing for a number
    of years. Interestingly, this pitcher was produced outside of
    the special chamber in which this plant has been growing.
    This is particularly noteworthy because the humidity outside
    the chamber is essentially typical for the area in which I live,
    which is quite dry. In fact, our humidity is often less than 20%!

    Anyway, here it is. Note the fluted shape of the pitcher, which
    is quite substantially different than the shape of the species'
    lower pitchers. Moreover, I believe that this was produced
    about eight feet up the vine, so I am quite sure that it qualifies
    as an upper!

    My wife was kind enough to hold the pitcher for a photograph.
    Sorry about the lousy quality; wish that there was no
    background shadow, but I didn't have time to hook up the ring flash....

    Enjoy!

    She has flowered three times in the last eighteen months,
    and I've posted information about it here at least twice,
    once with pictures of the inflorescence. You must have
    missed it.

    What a dramatic picture/pitcher [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    No sign of my young northiana pitchering yet, I was putting it down to not enough humidity- but perhaps not? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    cheers

    Magnificent Jeff! Absoulutely stunning. Its impressive that this touchy plant has pitchered in unexpected conditions as you stated. How warm do you keep her? I'm assuming in the range of at least 20C and up to around 27-30C in the daytime?

    Cheers!!!
