    thats awesome!

    Yea I tried those wooden baskets for awhile but they dried out to fast for me as well. I'd love to use them though if I could devise some automated watering system. That would be choice!

    I was, however, cleaning out my growchamber of algae and moss, when I noticed that my gigantic merriliana was hiding two really nice pitchers from me on the backside! I was so surprised. So I fed them and now they're happy sauce.

    I guess we don't want to redo them in bigger pots yet because it is new so I have to wait. When it grows bigger I can redo the plant but i have to wait now so I don't maybe kill it on accident. If I lay the pitchers on there sides why won't they rot that way? My momn thinks they might rot if they aren't hanging and if they are touching the dirt like that.

    They are not going to rot if they are touching the substrate. infact in the wild the lower picters will often be resting on leaf litter and the surrounding substrate. You can tell your mom that they will not rot if they are touching the dirt. some species of nepenthes acually form thier picthers partially in the ground.

    They don't rot when touching the substrate, good. Just for the heck of it, which species actually form their pitchers partially in the ground? If you happen to know off hand.
