Hi,

congratulations to this jewel! So this is the same source Jeremiah has his seedgrown eddy from? May I ask what price you payed for this plant?

It's really great to hear that there is a breeding pair from Mt. Tambuyukon in cultivation. This is one of the most beautiful Nepenthes I know and after visiting both natural habitats I'm even more stunned about the size of the upper pitchers! with over 50cm in length!!

If you would like to see some more pictures of from Marai Parai...

Happy eddy growing and kind regards

Afaik - there is still no 'breeding pair' in cultivation.

Magnificent plant :Laie_71mini: , this pitcher has a very vivid coloration typical of a Nepenthes well cared :tu: . Congratulations, because you deserve the time dedicated to the hobby :Laie_95: .

Best regards,

Rodrigo

Congratulations! your plant is really beautiful!

How old is it? It has great looking pitchers, but I'm pretty sure the next ones will be just better and better, I would love to see it in a few years, it will be spectacular.

My best wishes.

Hi Heli, very nice plant. Are you saying that plant pictured is around 8 years old?, or that it's a division from a plant that was germinated in 2005?

Yeah, they aren't too picky, but they are slow.

It gets ambient temps. In the summer it gets temps up to 95 F. Didn't like last summer too much :(

I treat it the same as for N. ventricosa. But it probably would like it a bit cooler and more humid; so I've taken to running a cool mist humidifier anytime the ambient humidity drops.

Wow... So you just give it normal temps? I'm giving mine nights with a range of 55-60 and day temps of 73-77. With high humidity, how big is your plant now?
