Very nice...I always like pics showing progressive plant growth.
I also appreciate your remarks regarding fertilization.
Can you confirm whether you mist your fert for foliar feedings, if you also follow-up with a clean water rinse, and lastly do you water at a specific time, e.g. early mornings, mid day or aft noon (or not).
Thanks again for the progress report and great pics and tips!
I drip the leaves with droplets of fertiliser-liquid with a medical grade needle. It works well because the surface tension of the water keeps the droplet suspended on the tentacles of the leaves.
I water the plant at night, keeping the soil moist but not wet. The medium consists of 1:1 (Peat:Perlite). Here's a more current picture of the plant, I ran out of fertiliser so it has gone hungry for a week or two.

...here is an update. These have been in the Observatorium for the whole summer, some days it was VERY hot in there. I have no climate control. They have coloured up nicely and seem to be doing well nevertheless, lots of steady new growth. Thanks for looking.
