    N. Lowii Murud Seedlings 10 month progress

    15 months later... They survived some extreme heat over the summer that scorched a majority of the leaves. Bounced back and time to repot! I'm thinking I want to separate them now. Thinking they'll do better in their own spaces.

    Nepenthes Genetics Question (F2 Hybrids)

    That makes sense that it would take an incredible amount of time to achieve result like what I described. I did some more research and the owner of EP had some experience with F2 crosses and what was interesting was the one he said was most successful was my example! I guess, like you said...

    Nepenthes Genetics Question (F2 Hybrids)

    I'll get straight to the point; has anyone ever seen a Nepenthes F2 hybrid? For example n. (lowii x truncata) x (lowii x truncata). Now I am no biologist (although I did take advanced bio in high school), but I have a hypothesis on how the traits of each parent would show through. I'm assuming...

    Looking For (trade) Partner for flowering N. Campanulata

    Well in the interest of being mysterious, I'll give a couple clues on the species I'm crossing with my campy! :p 1. There are 2 species, both well renowned for their teeth. 2. The pollen owner posted on the forum regarding a partner for the pollen quite a few months ago. I could do more...

    It's a girl! Sorry to those who offered pollen in this thread but I was made an offer that was too good to pass up.

    Looking For (trade) Partner for flowering N. Campanulata

    My N. Campanulata is flowering! Not sure whether it is male or female though. Either way, if it is female I'd like to see if anyone has pollen from something that would make for an interesting cross or breed more pure N. Campanulatas. If it's male I'll send out pollen to whomever would be...

    N. Lowii Murud Seedlings 10 month progress

    Kelp meal came from eurekaspringsorganics.com, not sure if they're even still in business. It NPK levels on the bag say 0.6 - 0.1 - 1.5. It's mild when it comes to those 3 chemicals but contains a lot of micro-nutrients that are normally overlooked but plants love (I give it to my vegetable...

    N. Lowii Murud Seedlings 10 month progress

    About a year or more ago I found the opportunity to finally acquire the Nepenthe species I've wanted since I was younger, N. Lowii. I've always heard about how slow growing Lowii can be but two of them have really been pumping out bigger and bigger leaves! I found that they loooove fluorescent...

    Back on CP train!

    My zone is 6b. Yeah, I don't bother to try growing LL because the temp drops 20 degrees every night. Besides my peltata I have one other HL which is a truncata and that just started to take off since I got it a month ago. We can get some spikes in heat throughout the summer so I make sure my...
