    may i ask what constantly high humidity is? it varies from plant to plant. so what may be 75% is very high for one species it's not that high for another.

    Constantly high humidity would be above 80 percent at all times. That is not our growing conditions. During the heat of the day where our Vikings are growing, temps hit about 97 F at peak high, with humidity dropping down below 70 percent, but only for a couple of hours max. More typically the day temp is around 92 F with humidity up around 75 percent. They get misted (more like wet down) twice a day minimum and the temp will drop to 88F and humidity up to 80 percent +. Of course, at night you can drink the air [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Yes, wrizome cuttings, not stem cuttings folks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ! Yes, this is a strange development in nepenthes evolution. Theese plants have developed wrizomes to survive droughts and fires. N. rowanae from Australia shows the same habit. In certain times of the year, rowanae has been known to die back as it would in its natural habitat. This has lead many collectors to think of them as being dead, but they're not. They will come back with an explosion of basal shoots. I don't own either of theese, but that's what I know [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . Many viking pics on this japanese website-

    Unhappy

    Trent,

    Are yours growing in full sun, under shade cloth, or what? I have about 25 vikings coming from Thailand in a week or two. I assume I can treat them like typical N. mirabilis. I live in southwestern PA, and keep most of my Nepenthes outside during the warm part of the year.

    NICE nepenthes! Very attractive. Yeah that will be a hot one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks for sharing all the information.

    BTW...what causes all the variations in color? Is it genetic and unpredictable or does the variance come from growing conditions (light, etc.)?
