I call it my bonsai bical because Ive been growing it in the same 6" pot for the past 7 years. Even though the whole leaf-span of the plant has remained about 29 inches it continues to put out nicely sized colorful pitchers. It also has two 8inch basals, One day id like to build i nice big (huge) lowland chamber for it and put it in a bigger pot, but for now i intend to keep it in its 3ft x 3ft home as long as i can. ;D
Impressive bical, donn!!!! But..but... a 6" pot for a 29" plant? Isn't that against all common botanical knowledge? Well, good growing, at any rate!
Yes it would go against botanical knowledge as far as Nepenthes go, but i figured if one can dwarf trees and other common garden plants using small pots why not nepenthes? ;D Every few years i replace the top couple of inches of soil with fresh peat/bark mixture and i fertilize very very weakly every 3 or 4 months but aside from that and not repotting it i treat it like all my other neps.
Well this isn't large, but does it qualify as red?
A day without Nepenthes is like a day without sunshine! -- steve

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?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

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