  1. Bad bicalcarata

    Very nice indeed to see your N. bicalcarata doing much better. I have mine under strong LED light, with day temps of + 35 C and night 20-25 C. Humidity daytime around 50-60 % and night up to about 85-99%. I have noticed that my bical loves very hot temperatures during the daytime, sometimes exceeding the 40 C.
  2. Help with N. distillatoria

    Ok I finally changed the sphagnum moss with some Nepenthes potting mix (Peat moss, Orchid bark, perlite and a middle layer of gravel for the extra moist), I found out that this Nepenthes had it's roots deeply into another pot of my Neps, where it formed a root system outside of it's original pot and I found out it had produced a miniature pitcher. So I will keep you guys updated on the progress with this N. distillatoria. I went to do some reading about this kind and they have often times flooding in their area, so I had put them at the bottom of my growtent where it at times gets flooded, because of the water I give my other plants. I will soon post some pictures of my plants.
  3. Help with N. distillatoria

    Hi Manders, I have just tried that with a diluted 31-11-11 fertilizer. Will keep you updated if that works. I am wondering if I perhaps have to put it in a different potting mix as it is currently only in sphagnum moss.
  4. Help with N. distillatoria

    Ok Thanks! I do have it in a pot with a a cover for higher humidity. I do give him lots of water, to keep it moist. Could it even be the soil?
  5. Help with N. distillatoria

    I was wondering if any of you have experience with N. distillatoria. I now have a second plant as the first one died. The second one is showing the same symptoms like the first one and that is stunned growth. Both of them I keep under lowland conditions with bright light and a humid environment. I just don't know what I am doing wrong. All my other lowland Neps are doing fine, this is the only one which doesn't. Please let me know what I need to do else. By the way the 2nd N. distillatoria is growing in sphagnum moss (That's how I received it, as the first one i had it put in loose soil, peat moss, orchid bark and perlite. I just wanted to see if sphagnum would help better) Thanks for your time.
