From Cerro Duida, Venezuela.

  • Environment: terrarium placed close to a south-facing blinded window
  • Temperature: from 10°C at night to 25°C during the day in the coldest months ; from 15°C to 32°C in the warmest months
  • Light: Cree CXB3590 6500K 50W LED light spot located 60 cm above the plant, alight 12 hours a day ; shaded sunlight in the morning from October to April
  • Soil: 2 parts milled pine bark, 1 part coarse quartz sand, 1 part perlite, live sphagnum moss topping, in a planter made of compacted tree fern roots
  • Watering: daily mistings of demineralized water on the sphagnum moss

This one has been at the top of my wish list for years. The pitchers are superbly shaped and colored, with a heavily veined inner side and a nectar spoon that must have been an inspiration for Darth Vader’s helmet.
