Ever since I gotten nepenthes a few months back and seen pitcher forming. I am very curious how they grow. I've decided to make a time lapse video project on one of the N. Rafflesiana. After a week or more. I've capture the footage of 1 and been working on the video. Well it's done now.

here's the video...
Best viewed in 720 or 1080 hd and full screen. (option at setting icon bottom right of video)

Nicely done! I think I was as captivated by watching the growth on the other plants almost as much as I was with the Nep. :)

So cool! It was especially fascinating to watch the other sundews grow and put out flower stalks within the time that one pitcher formed. Then also interesting to see how the new pitcher opened just as the old pitcher started to droop. Very well done, thank you for sharing.

Thank you. It will be good to have a cp collection time lapse to see how plants grow. I was thinking of that way too but some people has already done it with good artificial background.

Lovely! Nicely put together, thanks for posting.
Thanks KD :)

Thanks, you are very observant. I think the burmannii has been stressed under some long photoperoid.

Very cool to see!
Thanks you for your kinds comment!

That was absolutely amazing i enjoyed watching the flower stalks growing up and the drosera leaves opening up on your dews and the lid on the other raff already established lifting and closing moving up and down and at one point it was actually moving down while the new one was opening up it was simply amazing! I love this video and I'm gonna share this with my friends daughter whose doing a small show and tell project for her class with an N. Amp when its replacement gets here. Wow i gatta watch this again this is great. Thanks so much for sharing i hope u do another video like this it was amazing to see how many new leaves the dew on the pot the raffs growing near produced in just a few days. Simply amazing and very well done. Thanks for submitting this here!!

Very awesome video tish. I love time-lapse videos, but this was the first time I've seen one trained on a Nepenthes. Like the others, the progression of the plants surrounding it was very interesting as well. Wonderful choice of music. :D
