    N. splendiana x [(veitchii x maxima) x veitchii]

    I did a half-hearted attempt to back-cross mine with x splendiana. The pods don't look very promising. Perhaps a cross with something else would have produced better results. I'll probably have to wait till next year to try. If you'd be interested in seeds, let me know -- I likely won't have...

    N. splendiana x [(veitchii x maxima) x veitchii]

    Nice plants, Grey Moss, especially the one with the red peristome & upturned lip! Sorry to hear that they're no longer with you :( Here's an older thread showing some other clones from this grex...

    Nepenthes & hydroponics: Preliminary results.

    Thanks for the interest, everyone. Grey Moss: I grow all my plants as intermediates in household temperatures, so none are obligatory lowlanders. I also grow mostly hybrids since I find they perform better under my conditions. It would be very interesting to test out some highland species in a...

    Nepenthes & hydroponics: Preliminary results.

    I've been experimenting with growing Nepenthes hydroponically since March 2015, so for about a year and a half now. I'd like to share my results in this thread, and then give some details about my method. Thanks to TF member knuckles for sharing with me his experiences growing Nepenthes...

    N. eymae x ephippiata pollen available

    I have limited quantities of N. eymae x ephippiata pollen available. Please PM if interested. 50/50 seed split. I may not have enough for all offers, but I'd consider even "common" plants like ventricosa and mirabilis.

    Other Mini Indoor Nepenthes?

    Just a couple links for some examples of plants kept small by cultivation practices: Cindy's "bonsai'd" Neps Bonsai bicalcarata, grown in a 6" pot for 7 years I also have a distinct memory of a bonsai trichocarpa, 10 years old, but can't find the link at the moment.

    Other Mini Indoor Nepenthes?

    As others have already noted, even small-leaved Nepenthes like glabrata can get "large", that is, many yards/meters long. Having said that, a 6-foot / 2m gracilis is much more manageable than a 6-foot / 2m bicalcarata, even if the gracilis has multiple vines. Leaf size is an important factor in...

    Plant tracking program

    Some time ago I created an MS Access database to track my collection. You're welcome to use the template (i.e., the structure minus my data) if an Access solution interests you, or just for getting ideas on structure.

    Seeking ideas for hydroponic Nepenthes growing set-up

    @Knuckles, thanks for the tips. I had shied away from drip rings because they were expensive; I hadn't thought of creating my own. Out of curiosity, which Nepenthes did you grow hydroponically? Which did not do well for you? And what medium did you use? I'd be interested to learn more about...

    FT: Hybrid Nepenthes seedlings for Sarracenia, Tillandsia

    Sadly, I must dispose of about a dozen Nepenthes hybrid seedlings that I do not have the room to grow out. Before doing so, I wanted to see if anyone would like to trade for Sarracenia or Tillandsia. The seedlings are N. splendiana crossed with this Song of Melancholy and this other SoM clone...

    Seeking ideas for hydroponic Nepenthes growing set-up

    I was hoping someone might have some ideas to help me resolve an issue with growing media. Several months ago, I began growing 4 Nepenthes in 100% perlite hydroponically. The plants are watered 3 times a day for 15 min. each (the minimum time interval on my timer) with nutrient solution. They...

    Sundry photos from my grow room

    I realize it's been nearly two years since this thread started, but I thought it might be interesting to compare then-and-now. My location has changed, so the set-up is different, but many of the plants are the same. Here's indoor Nepenthes growing at its non-finest ;)
