    Bag Touching Leaves (during acclimation)

    Sounds good! And the leaves aren't even big enough to be bent by the bag, they just touch the bag with their leaf tips.

    Bag Touching Leaves (during acclimation)

    Just a quick question . . . I'm acclimating some new Neps using the bag method. One of the plants has larger leaves and they touch the inside of the bag. Is that a problem? I feel like I read somewhere that condensation will make the leaf start to rot, fungus, or something like that...

    Communal Nepenthes Pot?

    I didn't actually mean to pick an auto-watering type planter. I just thought the photos displayed the idea I was going for. The shelf in front of my window is about 2' wide, so if I can find a window planter of that size, I'll try it out.

    Nepenthes feeding

    A new fish food on the market (since the last post above from 2017) is Fluval Bug Bites. I imagine this is somewhat more natural, as insects are one of the main ingredients in the food. All of their current fish food formulas contain a high percentage of Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae and some...

    Communal Nepenthes Pot?

    It seems that everyone grows their Neps singularly, in individual pots. I too, have done it for years. Besides confusing identities, is there any reason not to grow several Neps in one large pot? These are bean plants in the example, but It could done in a window box like this: And vine...

    Since the last NASC auction held here, I've been growing a N. (lowii x veitchii) x campanulata cutting in a mix of ground coco coir, coco fiber and fir tree bark (I would have added perlite, but I ran out). It's already grown roots and a new leaf. Watering is with the tray method, which is how...

    Cannibalistic Venus Flytrap

    That looks amazing! Never seen anything like that before. I'm a bit confused though . . . so is that one leaf's trap that closed on another leaf's trap . . . or is that one leaf with two traps (one trap growing inside another trap on same leaf)? *EDIT* Actually, I think I see one leaf...

    fire rings and bogs

    This is not a common situation, so I'm not sure if many will know what to say. I would simply make a big fire in the fire ring. Sit back and enjoy it. When it's at it's hottest, I would then see how many feet away I would be comfortable. Then I would be sure the bog was that same distance...
