I never remember to mess with the lighting hours so that may be it...

    What temps does yours experience? Mine are just normal indoor ambient temps + light heat so basically 75-85*F days and 70-75*F nights. Perhaps it should go in the HL Nep chamber in winter to cool down some?
    A little cooler this time of year but still around 80 day 60 night.
    How many hours of light do you give it? It's been a few weeks since the scapes started to poke up so that would be around 10 hours of light?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    12 hours on at 1:30 pm off at 1:30 am. It would be nice if they sold a lighting timer that could be set to increase and decrease with the seasons...

    Hmm well you got me.. maybe it needs less than 12? Right now actual daylength is hmm 9hours.
    My only other thought was that perhaps they are getting light cues from other light sources that is blocking a short day cycle? I know some plants are quite sensitive to even the slightest bit of light interrupting a short day cycle and .. no blooms. So room light or a ray of sunlight etc can mess them up.

    I had these guys bloom for me last year in march.



    Kept the flooded and housed with the petiolaris group drosera. Hot, humid...

    I think I have the lights set so that they will go off at a time that it is less than my shortest days. That way as we get to summer light from the outside gives me longer days and come winter I still get relatively short days... So maybe three hours difference between longest and shortest days.

    Nice Mach! Got it to flower totally under lights? Maybe you can help Swords out better than I on how you are growing it to bloom.

    Few more things..
    So apparently G. violacea are really flexuosa which makes this one now
    G. lobata x flexuosa
    (sorry slightly out of focus)


    and this is now G. flexuosa..
