    Jeff,

    Just superb! What a beautiful plant. You're a fine, fine grower and I personally appreciate you sharing these photos. Keep up the VERY good work.

    I have seen pitchers produced outside the enclosure at least three thimes I can think of(mirabilis, alata and an amp). All three of these are not nearly as picky as N. northiana, but I guess I am not surprised it produced that outside the grow area.
    Sometimes I wonder if the plant has a "growing brain" that knows that 90% of the plant is getting the proper requirements, so does not really care if a stray vine produces a pitcher in conditions where if the whole pot was there, it would not happen.
    Anyhow, good stuff Jeff, as always.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    my N. bongso is doing the same thing, granted it also isnt as picky. i think Joe is right as long as most of the plant is happy one or two pitchers in dry air probably wont phase it at all.

    Could be several things, Bill, such as lighting, frequency

    Temps are generally no lower than 20 C, and usually well over
    30 (even up to 35) during the day. This plant is a true low-
    lander, in every sense.

    Pictures/pitchers like that are what make me want to get back to Neps but i must remind myself I would kill it at this time.

    Absolutely beautiful! Do what you do!
