    Looking to trade N. vogelii x (spathulata x mira)

    Kat, I will keep it polite under the assumption that you forgot we know each other already, and just say no thanks.

    Looking to trade N. vogelii x (spathulata x mira)

    I was sent this N. vogelii x (spatulata x mira) by accident, I'm hoping, and decided I'd rather trade it if someone is interested, than go through the hassle and expense of returning it. I can't grow highlanders here, so I'd prefer to trade it for a lowland Nepenthes, or even an intermediate...

    Unhappy Bellii

    Ugh, that's the worst. I've had plants do that too and it's the most frustrating thing. After trying everything I can possibly think of sometimes I have to chalk it up to a weak plant. Some will always be stronger growers than others and sometimes you have gotten the dud. I haven't grown bellii...

    How do i transition a terrarium pitcher to being outside?

    I have always picked a week that looks to be fairly mild weather wise, no crazy weather patterns or large storms. Temps that the plants *should* like, that are not too far off from what they've been getting. I know that's sometimes easier said than done, so for where I live, I usually kick a lot...

    Reminiscenses of a Sarracenia grower

    Yes, Please continue! How much easier things have become due to the internet! I feel like I grew up in a kind of golden age for cp's, very lucky. Local home improvement stores carried "death cubes," but the old style ones...in the sealed hard plastic cases. In them they had different kinds of...

    Worth trying to start with rhizomes?

    Dormancy lasts another 2-3 months for northern states, not for us here in FL. I'm in zone 9 as well, should only be a few more weeks for us, so rhizomes are perfectly fine to start now. You're also on the second floor, so frost damage to a rhizome is extremely unlikely, even if we get hit with...

    Anybody else have really bad local CP nurseries?

    That's too bad, I used to live in a cp dead zone so I know how that feels. Although I wish we had a local cp retailer, specifically, I guess I can't complain. All our Lowe's have death cubes and those Sarr and vft rhizome terrarium kits nearly year round, HD has flytraps year round, and garden...

    Roseas from mobile co, AL

    Beautiful! I love rosea as well and currently have none from that location...hmmmm. Does clone Q stay that color pattern or is that a seasonal thing that it just has a red throat?

    Any guideline on trying Nepenthes nectar

    Exactly that. Ever pulled honeysuckle flowers off the vine, or tried clover as a kid? Just taste it...where's your sense of adventure?

    Free Nep seed

    Hey CP30, tried to pm you, but your inbox is full!

    Anyone familiar with these?

    I have a S. "Fat Chance" it was sold to me as S. rosea (syn. purp venosa var burkii) 'Fat Chance', but I guess "Fat Chance" would be correct then, huh? BY the way cody, it's a great little purp, very fast growing, good color, offsets easily.

    Free Nep seed

    Florida checking in, love to do Nepenthes from seed. I'd also be willing to trade something for seeds too. I've got a bunch of extra S. purpurea ssp. venosa divisions I recently made, and have my fingers crossed for some S. minor seeds I have in cold strat right now if you do Sarracena?

    The seedling trade thread.

    I have a whole bunch of the Botanical Wonders clone of S. rubra. All those "Bug Biting Plants Terrarium Set" boxes went on sale recently for change at a local Lowes. Would be happy to send these out if people want one. They are very small, (sold as dormant rhizomes) but growing now. I'm not sure...

    Veinless purp. Finally!

    Congrats, nice find. It looks like it's going to be a stunner by the end of the season!

    Pete's plants

    Little, or funky looking lids aren't a soil issue. Any chance Miranda was one of the one's in lower humidity? Low humidity might cause lids to grow strangely or too small. You could also bump the lighting up or move it closer to the lights, Miranda likes a lot of sun and that pitcher looks like...
