    Don't worry Cindy these thingies become bigger and bigger. My growing conditions are on the sunny and dry side -even if I don't want them to be on the dry side ...
    Here's a larger image, pitcher is 14cm without lid.

    Nflytrap/Griffin: I am located a few tricycle rides south of Manila [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] The frog has left the pitcher over night. I don't know where he is hanging out now. We have also palm sized tree frogs, but those don't fit my pitchers yet [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Volker,
    Didn't you use to have a photo of a variegated N. bellii on your site? Nice pics, btw.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I'm pretty sure that's a chorus frog (or is it..?). I once raised one... then let it go (sniff sniff... great little frog)

    Joe:Yes, that was me. It sadly never started to grow since I received it from MT. And no growth is too slow to compete with the natural decay of the old leafs, so... R.I.P. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I get frogs in my pitchers too. Mine don't end up eating the frogs. Instead, the pitcher atracks the bugs and the frog "processess" the bugs for the pitcher.

    possibly. I posted a picture of the one I had and they told me it was a chorus frog and it wasn't going to get much bigger than that. But I'm guessing it will grow a little bit more since at first mine was exactly like yours and then as it grew (the tiniest bit...barely noticeable), it got darker.

    Yes, it looks similar to a chorus frog, but they are native to North America, and not climbers, so that kind of leaves them out.

    Cheers,
