I know that new CP hobbyists tend to get more worried than you redtails who have been doing this for years, but I have a couple concerns. I have been wanting a N. Jamban species for quite a while and finally found one at a price I was willing to dish out. It was from a seller on ebay who got them from Borneo exotics and it arrived about 4 days ago. The Jamban is young but the plant came in excellent condition. It came bare-root and wrapped in a little sphagnum with perlite. I potted it in a mix of sphagnum, perlite, activated charcoal, fine orchard bark, with a light top dressing of oyster shell. It is in a pond pot for plenty of air for the roots. I have it under 5 T-5 grow lights during the day and put it outside at night for a nice drop in temperature. I live in the Pacific Northwest so it is a good drop for highland species. My concerns are that the plant started to die back a little bit. both of the small pitchers were going so I snipped them and a couple leaves to give it an extra boost. I guess my question is, is this Jamban just acclimating from a long trip from Texas or is getting too much shock at once?
