    Tonys plant was a nice little one. It didn't seem to unusual for any Nepenthes plant, but the drier soil seemed to tickle its fancy. Judging by habitat photos I'd say its in a pretty dry environment, at the root level.

    Tropics,
    I grew my plant as a windowsill plant for about a year at least. It never did anything great, but didn't die either. Then I noticed the bottom leaves blackening, so I moved it outdoors to increase air circulation and give it a more "natural" environment. It responded temporarily with new growth and then died. What's weird is the availability. I've seen seed grown jacs, or macrophyllas going for $$ while pervillei was relatively inexpensive from Wistuba. It seems this species isn't "rare" by monetary standards but remains elusive in availability standards. I think that's what irks me. I love this species and would love to grow it, but I can't find it!! It's one thing to be like edwardsiana that is $$$$$ and extremely scarce. But from what I've heard about pervillei, it isn't an issue of $$$$ for hobbyists to obtain. You'd think there would be more seed grown specimens available.

    I found it very hard. I have two plants on order (have been waiting for a longgg time now!). I tried once before with this plant. The previous conditions were kinda lowland, dark, stuffy, etc. The plant was fine at first then started to suffer - I think from lack of light - and died. This time round I will try a bright terrarium. Sunny intermediate if you like, with a degree of air movement. Hopefully will be fine. Aparrently leaf spotting is caused by lack of light. In a bout of lateral thinking I posted a query on the UK Orchid Forum about Seychelles conditions in general, which threw up a few interesting observations (link here).

    If only someone would tell me what soil to use........ lol

    Will feedback once the plants are received later this year (hopefully).

    Iíve also noticed the cost/availability phenomenon that Joel mentioned. Maybe itís because thereís not much demand for N. pervillei. After all, it doesnít have wild colors or an unusual shape. Itís just modestly different from whatever most people imagine as the norm.

    Thanks to everyone who has supplied information relevant to growing N. pervillei.

    Hi
    They had quite a few N. pervillei at Kew Gardens when I went there on Saturday [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] All different sizes- no pitchers though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    cheers
