    Truncata

    I feel so emberassed as I'm almost positive I asked this three years ago... Aside from it being a lowland, what sorts of temperatures can this plant withstand? I recall someone telling of how theirs stood up to a freezing night one time, and came out of it more than alive... My house stays...

    N. ventricosa

    I want to get myself a nice little CP to grow while I'm living back home, just to take care of before I get back out on my own where I can create the veritable rainforest I had before... I spotted a mature N. ventricosa at a nursery nearby, which surprised me... I understand that they are...

    Truncata problems

    I think that my N. truncata is going downhill healthwise... The very first pitcher died, this seemed unusual to me because it started to die starting with the middle. Now the other pitcher is begging to turn ever so slightly yellow, and the leaf is even yellower, but not quite entirely yellow...
