Hello everyone! I have 3 Nepenthes and I bought the Nepenthes secret doom (the one in the back) and a nepenthes fancy tapestry (green one in the middle) at the same time as the same size (xxs) and my secret doom is humongous!! Why is the fact tapestry so small?.. it’s been 1 month under a year since I’ve had them.

Thank you but I just went calculated it and the temperature is just fine, the night temps in my room are 68-70 and day time when the lights are on in the grow setup it gets about 70-80 degrees... so the small green one has perfect conditions

Yeah maybe, the secret doom is vigorously growing and I get a new pitcher every month, the fancy tapestry is growing very slowly.

Those neps look great!

I think it may just be genetic. If you want to boost the little one, try foliar fertilizing it with Maxsea 16-16-16 1/4 strength.

Yes, the individual pictures with the plants wrapped in a blue towel is when I got them, and the picture with both of them are how they look now.
