Subject: Slow growing Nepenthes

Hi Everyone, My Nepenthes are coming back to life after a cold and
dark winter..Can anyone tell me whether the highland Nepenthes
Veitchii is considered a slow grower? I have two examples which I
have had two years grown from tissue culture..Both are still tiny
with not much new growth. One currently is developing a new leaf,
while the other has no obvious new growing point..Any tips on
encouraging the growth? Both my Rajah & villosa are sprouting
nicely and they are considered slow growers..

Also is there any way you can get the "shy flowering" utricularia
reniformis to flower..It has flowered once a couple of years ago,
but nothing since..It is producing a record number of leaves at the
moment..It is now a large mature plant in a large 12" wide
container..It is currently stood outside ( UK) as that was the
conditions in it was enjoying when it did flower..Any tips?
