a number of months ago i received my wistuba order, containing N. muluensis and N. tenuis.
surprisingly, despite the number of negative things i heard on muluensis being difficult to grow, it has not put up a single fuss, since unbagging and potting up, and through the acclimating process. Even now in my time of neglect on the plants, its continued to chug right along...
a couple of months ago, Zu sent me a few plants, one being a relatively unhappy muluensis (i of course understood that it would be a TLC plant, and sadly that plant did not survive)

However, here is a photo of my muluensis taken the other night...

Looking good!

I have that same red & green N. muluensis clone from Wistuba, seems to be a steady grower for me as well, mine is in a net pot of live sphagnum.

Looks great Sk. Been a while since we saw pics from you. Hows ur macro doing dude? I still seem to be having issues with BE macro. ALso...hows the tennis? I got a tenuis recently as well. A couple of days of excess humidity and low light made its growth point rot very early on. Now its finally growing well again...slow but steady.

The pitchers look crazy! Can't wait to see them all grown up. :)

Are those bottom leaves supposed to be a darker brown, or are they just old? I like the reddish stem! :)
