    Wondering if this light will be sufficient for N. sanguinea or too much

    I grow all of my plants (VFTs, Sarracenia, Drosera, Pingicula) indoors. They're all in trays, in the south-facing window of a solarium that is glass on 3 sides. I supplement light with 2 40-watt compact fluorescents, 2 10,000K and 2 6500K daylight T-8 bulbs (meant for reef aquaria) and 2...

    Nepenthes Greenhouse

    Hi Everyone, I have recently started a mini nepenthes collection in a small greenhouse I have converted to house tropical plants. This thread will just be a running album of some hand-picked photos from my Flickr page. I am really interested to see if you are growing some of the same species...

    Acclimatization question

    I purchased three plants - nepenthes veitchii x platychila, rajah x veitchii and robcantleyi x veitchii. They arrived from cz plants in January, so I guess it was quite a shock in conditions. Bombay's lowest in winter is still above 15 degrees celcius. More usually in low twenties at night...

    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...

    Incoming Updates

    I haven't been able to do very much on the forums of late due to a hectic school schedule, but I plan to get back into it over the holiday break. For Christmas, I got a Cannon Rebel T6 camera! It will be a great improvement over taking pictures with my iPhone, which has ~12 megapixel resolution...

    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...

    CP's for Everyone?

    Would you be interested if I was to make a system that can provide ideal conditions for any care intensive/condition sensitive species, or make it easy enough to save a poor Walmart VFT that someone with no prior experience could? Features could include humidity sensing, programmable photo...

    Three new plants

    Hi guys! I just went to a terrarium event and got three new plants, but she wasn't able to give me the species name for any of them so I can't look up specific care instructions. Any help would be appreciated! I have a Nepenthes, a Sundew and an unknown pitcher plant (she called it a sweet...

    Unexpected finds or updates- MPX

    Sept. 17, 2017 Around a month ago, I bought a combo from lowes with a dormant pitcher plant and a flytrap, which I have posted about previously. The flytrap rhizome was not growing, and actually started to rot, so I removed it. After a weekend trip to cedar point, I came back to find my plants...

    Nepenthes repotting question

    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...

    THIS TRADE HAS ENDED. For trade are 10 fresh Nepenthes edwardsiana seeds which I just received today. Reason I am getting rid of, is I don't have any more room in my setup to grow any more of this species. The seeds are not wild collected. I bought them. They were harvested 2nd July 2017, so...
