Greetings everyone. About a month ago, I got a N. rafflesiana 'gigantea'. I'm just curious if anyone else also has one? Can anyone give me advice for the care of it?
This plant is a clone/cutting. For a while, I kept the plant indoors near a southward facing window. Currently, I have it sitting outside on the north side of my house so that it can still recieve light, but not be scorched by the mid-day sun. It is sitting in large clay pot with a tray underneath it that holds distilled/rainwater. The soil is primarily made up of sphagnum with some coconut fiber mixed in. I live in Ohio, where for a while, the daytime temperatures were in the upper 80s (sometimes mid 90s) and fairly high humidity. The past few days, it has been in the mid 70s - low 80s with about 40% humidity (thank goodness [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] ). I have just one pitcher (farily large) on the plant that hasn't opened up yet (I haven't seen much change in it for the past couple of weeks).
Hopefully that is enough information...if not, please let me know. Any advice to help this plant be healthy and happy?
Have a great day!
