Wanted to post an update on my plant I got around the same time as Supercazzola. It's pretty vigorous for a Nepenthes and handles relative-ish temperatures/humidity like a champ. (I do not grow it outside, did it for photo op but I may as it grows) Took no time at all to acclimate and the pitchers are starting to develop more defined shapes. plant is currently about 10-11 inches across. I got it on a whim but have really grown to like it a lot. The color is beautiful, thanks!

@Apollyon that plant got HUGE for only 7 months... I've had mine for around 2 months but it still looks the same as my September 19 pic... hoping it'll pick up speed soon :D

Thanks! When I got it, it was about the same size I just grow it on a shelf with a yescom where it catches some of the window light but not much. I foliar feed it when I remember and from time to time I drop osmocote pellets in the pitchers. When the leaf span gets to a decent size, I size up the pot by dropping the media plug into another. Next year I'll probably have to bare root them. Hybrids grow pretty quick so no doubt yours will be on its way very soon! This is what mine looked like when I got it back in March

Yeah mine looks very similar except for the fact that it doesn't have any pitchers, lol :lol:

I feed it maxsea through a dropper bottle on the weeks ever few days. Pitcher formation is what really gets me though, it's pretty slow when it comes to that.

Hmm, I would say the average humidity where my plant is might be around 60%. It gets higher from time to time when I leave the door open. Temperatures are actually kinda hot, like 85 degrees+ lol. It's a victim of Florida climate. They get too big for me to really give them special accommodations here. Doesn't seem to mind it though. Yours may just need more time to acclimate. You can try misting it a couple times a day, that may help.
