    My Indoor Highland Greenroom

    Very nice update! I have had a similar problem with my Hamata recently. But the browning is going for the pitchers first. Hmmm... I also noticed that my species have been suffering in general from the higher night temps ~63f or so. Lack of pitchers and some rot. My hope is that they can adjust...

    My Indoor Highland Greenroom

    Good to know! I actually just lost my first 2 plants (of recent memory)... Villosa and Macrophylla to root rot. It's been too hot at night and I have been to greedy with the water. I won't make the same mistake again :(

    My Indoor Highland Greenroom

    Very cool stuff! I skipped out on the EP imports, but I did manage to receive a few plants from Wistuba. I noticed a lack of roots as well, especially on the Heliamphora. Do you think this will be an issue?

    Is this a real Nepenthes Jamban or an imposter?

    Thanks for the pictures! My money is on Jamban x Dubia. The leaves are the main giveaway, but I think the peristome shows this as well.

    My Indoor Highland Greenroom

    That's a haul! I hope they do well in the space and recover quickly. Also N. Hamata x Veitchii whaaaaat??! Also N. Rajah x Burb x Eddy whaaaaaaaaaaaattttt??!?!?! So stoked to see what comes of these. I may need to keep a closer eye on BE in the future... As for your question, my night time...

    Nepenthes Greenhouse

    Thank you! Definitely happy about the Naga, and I would say it has been one of the most consistent plants I have had. Hope yours is easy to grow as well. I have a N. Nigra that is in a similar stubborn spot where it has produced 2 tiny leaves and no pitchers in the past year. Still hasn't gone...

    Nepenthes Greenhouse

    Thanks! In the year I have had it, it has put out 3-4 new leaves... :apologetic: I think it had some shock from the climate changes, but I had also been placing it in low light.

    Nepenthes Greenhouse

    Had to do some cleaning yesterday, so the whole setup is a mess. Luckily some of the plants are doing alright. I apologize in advance for the lighting <a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/141834839@N05/47679494521/in/dateposted-public/" title="N. Veitchii x...

    My Indoor Highland Greenroom

    Hey, Yeah it might be more like 2/3 of a gallon per day. I have a heater installed to raise my temps to 81-82 witch dries out the space and thus causes the humidifier to run a bit. Also I have a fan and two air ducts to the outside to allow for air flow 24/7. Currently I am more concerned with...

    My Indoor Highland Greenroom

    Oh nice! I have a 5-gallon tank for humidifier and I would say it needs to be refilled every 5 days or so. In reality I usually fill it up about 1/3 and then refill every 2 days. Currently I am looking for a solution to cooling my nights enough. The averages are just above 65º at the moment.

    Nepenthes Greenhouse

    Setup and more pics to come. Still working on lighting and spacing, but my job has been tough recently so I haven't had much time. <a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/141834839@N05/32673054677/in/dateposted-public/" title="N. Talangensis x Robcantleyi"><img...

    My Indoor Highland Greenroom

    Looks great! You have put in an impressive amount of work and I am now rethinking some of the decisions I made for my setup to help with any safety or potential water damage. Do you have any humidistat/humidifier? Also, how do you reach the plants in the back without having to move the others...

    Problem

    Things to check: Growth point still intact? Plant hasn't been uprooted? Main stem not snapped? If the answer to these are yes, then you should be fine. I have dropped a few plants before and they have been alright aside from one hamata that went into a 2 month shock. Movement in general seems...

    That color on Robcantleyi is awesome! I will try to follow this thread more closely for updates!

    Nepenthes Greenhouse

    Thanks! I can post a picture of more of the setup soon. Still working on the lighting actually. I am using a grow-tent rather than a traditional greenhouse, and it just sits in the middle of my living room, haha. So far it has worked well to keep all of the humidity and moisture in without...

    Simple solution for my non pitching Nepenthes plants

    In my experience, having stable climate that the plants can acclimate to is usually enough for them to pitcher and grow decently. Certainly higher humidity and cooler nights would help the plant produce larger pitchers, however.

    A few of my my Nepenthes plants

    They all look healthy and you have some really nice hybrids that should grow steadily. I look forward to seeing the progress!

    Pitcher Fluid Viscosity

    In my experience, N. Jacquelineae and Jac hybrids have very viscous fluid. I find it to be pretty cool, haha.

    Nepenthes Greenhouse

    Yes! Thanks, I am really happy with this one. My previous two Lowii's have barely progressed or gotten worse in the 2 years I have had them...
