I've been really into my albomarginatas lately. I just recently got this awesome black form. Its really nice. I also have an all red form the just opened another pitcher, biggest one yet at about 6" looks really good. Its awesome, the guy I got the black one from sent it overnight so it had like no shock. Its already starting to unfurl a leaf and I've only had it about a week and a half. Also my merriliana is doing awesome. Its getting really big so I'm going to need to find away to house it in a few months as it already is about 30" across. My small 34" cube grow chamber is running out of room, green house time! My truncata is also becoming a weed. I don't understand why people think it grows so slow mine is keeping up with all my other "weeds". I've been feeding it like crazy with squished wax worms. I think they need alot of food to grow fast.
Hmm I don't know whats the haps with your nepenthes situation?
