Pulled this guy out of the Aquaponic Grow Bed and moved into an emerged tank with a tight cover. I now have two nice pitchers going and a 3rd starting.
Got me thinking about a ZooMed tank for these guys.

Alata x mooreana seedlings starting to pitcher up.
Never give up on "dead" seeds. Here's some "Extreme Green" x Minor seedlings finally sprouting.

Grow indoors. southern exposure, as much light as possible. contrary to popular belief. sufficient light is necessary for pitchers to develop. humidity controls the size of the pitchers, but light makes them happen.
if you are giving the Nep enough light, at least 12-14 hrs, and it's still not pitchering, your media might be in question. Neps in general appreciate an airy media made up of orchid bark, long fibered sphagnum (orchid moss), and perlite/pumice (styrofoam, non biodegradable, may be used as a substitute). media should be damp but not soaking wet.

|Monster Fish||I'm not too good with nepenthes. Maybe amphirion can help you with that.|

Not sure what to do with the nepenthes however.

I have a venus flytap varient of some sort, Sarr. purpurea, N. "ventrata", and two Sarr. pitcher plants that I have as of yet not ID (though they were doing terribly so it won't be until spring that they will recover, they lost all of their pitchers)
Eventually, I want some other flytrap varieties, more Nepenthes, sundews, and basically whatever else I can get my hands on.
