    FINALLY some growth out of this N. ventricosa "Porcelain"...

    So you may remember early this year when I posted some pettable Droosera. Those plants were frozen... Also in that greenhouse I keep some other plants that like to be cooler than the tropical greenhouse so I keep them in front of the cooler in the temperature greenhouse. On this much cooler night which ended up freezing some things, it also knocked back this Nepenthes and the growth point died. I've been watching this plant like a hawk trying a few different spots to see if I could get any growth from it. While it hasn't lost any other leaves (which still surprises me) it refused to put out any new growth. Until recently, I'm super excited! I mean, I have to wait for this to grow up now, but with all the other leaves still alive and kicking maybe it won't take too long.
    Anyone experience something similar (maybe not from freezing from any type of severe setback)

    Very, nice. It would have been a real shame to lose something as unusual as this form of ventricosa. Glad to see it pulling through.
