    Mine have hardly grown. Describe everything you're doing so I can try to reproduce your conditions.

    I have it with my nepenthes. Likely closer to intermediate conditions than lowland. And I fertilize them with Maxsea when I think of it.

    Nice plant!

    Mine has turned out to be among the top ''most rewarding'' plants in my collection, Myrmecodia are so intriguing. Gave me about 15 fruits since May! And the fruits taste not bad either, a bit like apricots
