    its Sheridan but most ppl really screw it up...........

    the N. bongso was sitting in an open topped 10 gal tank until last saturday, it had been there for about 8 or 9 months. it was lighted with 2 four foot 32 watt flourecent lights. the humidity must have averaged about 50%

    the N. ephippiata ive had for only about 2 weeks. but it is sitting in the setup pictured above(as is the N. bongso now) its lighted with 4-4ft 32watt flourecents and with the humidifier im guessing its maintaining about 75%-80% humidity. its definatly not saturated. the N. ephippiata right now is basically all Tonys growing skills and not mine yet, give me a few months for it to settle in and than ill let yah know how it likes it.

    forgot temps, i think its about 80 during the day and dropping to 55-65 at night depending. so far them having a noticible drop in temps seems more important than anything. for quite awhile it was only dropping to the high 60's and they didnt mind so long as they had a drop.

    That is a seed grown highland plant that came out of a batch of plants from BExotics. As the pitcher ages the peristome gets a goldish color with some red flushing so the stripes are less distinct. It's a good N. veitchii but not the most amazing striped.. and it is appears that it will be male.

    My best N. veitchii striped (other than the clone you have) is one I got ages ago and has been a real bear to grow. I got it as a tiny TC thing simply labelled as N. veitchii highland, from a US company that hasn't sold Nepenthes in a long while. Unfortunately I have not been able to find out it's origins.

    Low to mid 80's day/high 50's low 60's night should be fine for N. ephippiata. That is pretty much what I shoot for here. Chunky mix with a good amount of LFS. And nice bright light.

    Tony
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    i realize finding a male like mine is going to be difficult. i would like to find a male that shows any kind of striping even if its not the best. i would think this would be better than crossing her with a plain peristromed male. i figure as much interest as there is in this clone i have trying for some nicely striped seedlings seems like a worthwhile investment of my time.
