This trigger plant grows on the mossy banks of certain creeks and on some waterfalls, it is common in North Queensland (Aust), it loves bright light but can tolerate full shade, leaves go red in full sun and generally weakens the plant, it grows amongst Drosera peltata/lunata, burmanni and spathulata here in the tropics (N.Q), it is ussually a rossete(2-4cm) however if grown in dark enough shade can be trained into a small tree-like plant (upto 3cm tall), its flowers are white and 2-3mm in length, they flower year round if kept warm enough.
In cultivation. Soil : 50/50 peatmoss/sand or pure spaghnum Pot size : 10cm tall pots, any diameter Water : Tray method 4-6cm deep Humidity : 50% and up, higher humidity means more flowers Light : Bright light to deep shade, bright light creates more flowers. Dormancy : None, if necisary one can collect seed and store it for many years, simply sprinckling as with drosera seeds when it heats up again or is better suited. Temp : will tolerate 5C-45C, optimium is 10C-30C.(I have never tried hotter than 45 nor cooler than 5) Notes : Grows well with utric caerula, nelumbifolia, calycifida and heliamphora in captivity.

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
