    Tony,

    What media do you use for your U. reniformis? Also do you use the tray method? I can't seem to get mine to do anything, grow, die, flower, they just sit there year after year not doing much of anything!

    I grow them in live LFS. I have tried the tray method and simply treating them like I would a Nep, watering a couple times a week.

    Its like ground hogs day with this plant, nothing realy changes.

    My grow room is in the basement and runs around high 50s to low 70s in winter to low 70s to mid 80s in the summer. I havn't notice much of a difference with the temp changes either. Although the warmer temps seem to keep it happier.

    The leaves were larger and there were more when I got my first division. I now have two going and they have similar growth habits (two seperate sources). I have had then for two years.

    It's just one of those Plants I can't seem to satify.

    dont feel bad, its one that just survives for me. im hoping the constant cool conditions of our new basement will help but who knows. ive got mine growing via info Pyro gave me a layer of LFS a couple inches thick over top of perlite and orchid bark and water it when i water the neps along side it. it lives, its tubers stay healthy and good sized but i cant keep leaves on it for any length of time.

    I use a mix of Canadian peat and silica sand. 20-30% sand maybe if that.. I don't measure. Just add a handful of sand to the peat lol.

    They are overhead watered every morning all year round and are not sitting in water. Basically treated like just about every other plant in the ghouse. This time of year the old leaves look crummy if they haven't already died off and new leaves are poking out. They typically last until late Winter. They may only put up a few leaves at most for an entire year.

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