Sonny is a tank and didn’t expected this weight 😯 and then thinking that Neo will reach 6 times Sonny weight, that’s completely insane. I belief Xan’s are slow growers and take almost 1,5 till 2 years to be full grown, Eustis still has time 😊
Yes Eustis is about 17 months old but can’t be sure as petco didn’t know his age when I got him but kaizen estimated him to be about 8-9 months old .

That maybe would explain his size and therefore has some to grow. But still, smaller or not, he’s healthy and beautiful 👌🏻, that’s the most important.

So handsome! He’s enjoying every minute of being outside! I can’t do this with Eustis because they spray around here for weeds and bugs. I can and am looking forward to taking him outside on a small tree and inside a butterfly enclosure.

Every minute outside is a minute. Unfortunately Sonny likes his outside, however within a hour he comes out his tree and moves on. A small tree inside a butterfly enclosure is perfect, Eustis will definitely like it 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

One eye on you and the other on the road ahead. Very convenient!
Something different, because you know a lot about nepenthes. What causes the pitchers to dry out and die off on the top? And do remove it or them? Or leave it.
Thanks ✌🏻

Either too hot or too dry up there, is it anywhere near basking spot? Once any pitcher is 50% brown remove it-they might just be old! Of course only new leaves can pitcher so those leaves are done but can still photosynthesize.

It’s the one in my living room. Too hot I doubt that, then it’s probably too dry. Only water it once a week, will intensify it.
Thanks
