    Neps in Hawaii

    About a week ago I got back from a trip to Hawaii, the big island, where we visited a Nepenthes nursery (can I name it here?). It was amazing and so big and full of awesome plants that we spent about 3 and a half hours there. Here's a bunch of pics I took before it started raining. Some of the...

    Advice for a struggling bicalcarata

    A few months ago,when my bicalc outgrew the small terrarium, I set it up in one that was larger, but had less ventilation. I made the mistake of setting the pot in the water, and proceeded to neglect my poor nep for several months:nono:. (I also made the mistake of setting the terrarium up in a...

    Nepenthes bicalcarata 1 week away from blooming,

    Hi all, Out of sheer luck, our 5-year-old N. bicalcarata has decided to create its first flower stalk ever! The buds are still too primordial to sex the plant, but it appears to be a male inflorescence. I am willing to send pollen--not particular at all what it gets crossed with--for a cut of...

    Dracula vampira Seeks Fanged Nepenthes Companion, Offers Division of Self

    A little over a year ago I bought a Dracula vampira orchid at an Orchid Show in San Francisco. It came from the SF Orchid Society Booth, and did not come with a clone name. It was in bloom, and I managed to break off the spike before the end of the day. Since Draculas are successive bloomers...

    Why do you love your Neps?

    How did you get involved with neps? Do you have a favorite? if so, what draws you to that plant? My fascination with Nepenthes started long before I had the means to care for one. I had a VFT and a purple pitcher plant, and was reading up on their care, and in doing so, read about the care of...

    This is where I'll post about my indoor collection. I decided to be so public with it because I am very serious about making it better (all within means of course!). I recently lost a great many of my older plants, though a few decade + ones survived my year off at university. As I plan on...

    Indoor Carnivores

    Almost all of my indoor carnivores live in a tropical terrarium in my reptile room.

Husband made the custom hood for it, with...
