Hi, new member here. Question: I have had a nepenthes x miranda for just over a year. It has since grown (what I think are) 2 basal shoots. All 3 plants are now about the same size, but the main plant hasn’t produced large pitchers in several months, while the two basals are producing nice...

one of my young Nepenthes miranda hybrid got the yellow spots on the leaves recently. Other plants next to it is growing normal without yellow spots. I wonder what wrong with this little guy. I grow it outside under double-layer 40% shade cloth in Houston. The medium is LFS + perlite with some...

I walk outside and notice something odd about my Miranda. One of the newer pitchers is hanging at an odd angle.
I get closer, and it's definitely off angle.
But it looks in perfect health. So I look inside.
SURPRISE!!! He seems to be breathing. I see bubbles every once in a while around...
Roughly five months ago I took a cutting from a huge Miranda, neglected the cutting and never got around to planting it. Checked it today and it's flowering! Plenty of roots on it and I plan on potting it soon, should I snip the flower? Can I do anything with the flower even if I don't have...
I suppose it's about time so I'll start with some recent pictures. Quite a few actually.
Plants waking up outdoors.
Some native Oregon sphagnum I'm growing with the outdoor plants, covered with netting to discourage those pesky birds.

I've been growing carnivorous plants for over 10 years. Most of that time I lived in Brooklyn where my growing area was limited to two small windowsills. I moved upstate a few years ago and my collection has grown exponentially. I am interested in all types of carnivorous plants but...
ISO Neps or Seeds
Hi there fellow CP lovers! I am in search of fresh nepenthes seeds. Not too picky about what kind, but no ventrata, alata, Miranda seeds please. I've never grown neps from seed so I am curious to see how I do. Thanks and happy growing! -Sara
I have a rooted nepenthes Miranda cutting. It currently has it's first open pitchers that are around 4". The plant is in a hanging pot and is approx 10" across the leaves. I am looking for any sarracenia I do not have. I only have about two species of them so there's a good chance I don't have...

Hello, My name is Chris Duncan and I have been growing carnivorous plants for 5 years now. After a few deaths with the recent horrible winters I have actually gotten good at this. So far I have tried my hand at Flytraps, Nepenthes (lowland, highland, and hybrids), sarracenia, drosera(only...
I've had an N sanguinae for a few years, and in the past week or so the leaves have been browning. Because I'm not at home I can't get a picture for you quite yet, but the leaves are splotchy and a picture should be coming at around five today. So far it is only on the sanguinae, though it's in...
