So I ordered a plant on eBay and they sent the wrong plant, it was a hybrid of the species rather than the species... So I contacted the seller and they agreed to send a replacement plant, and since they didn't have the species I wanted, they offered a N. ventricosa 'Black Peristome' which I had...
I have what is almost certainly N. veitchii x talangensis (purchased as an LHNN Poi Dog) that I need to cut back a bit. It makes lovely yellowish fuzzy talangensis-shaped pitchers with potential for a flashy yellow peristome. Even saw hints of striping in some of the older pitchers.

I spent several days observing and taking close pictures of a new large pitcher opening. I placed diluted orchid fertilizer into a couple of pitchers in each of three plants three weeks ago and this pitcher just exploded in size reaching 1.5 inches so far. The plant itself is the smaller of the...
I decided to break down and actually invest something recently and placed an order with ********. For the most part I am impressed moreso with the drosera. I ordered a d. x watari and the plant not only arrived in vgc but little did i know they are potted, still dewing but seems to be some...
Hey everyone. I finally got around to typing up a list for you all. I'm pretty sure I got everything but not 100% sure. Also keep in mind I work in a greenhouse where we've got over 300 species of plants ranging from orchids, ferns, tropical fruits, cactus, ethnobotanicals and more. So if you're...

I think mine is going to be a bit different than others i have seen, it has what seems to be a taller instead of a tubby pitcher and the peristome folds back very quickly, in just a few days , but it is keeping a nice and very dark coloring as the pitchers mature , it does got almost true black...
Nep quasi-noob alert. :lol:
I've been growing an AW N. inermis for a year or so (looked at my records - actually since Dec 9, 2010). The main vine (& the smaller basal) have produced pitchers on every leaf since I received it. Over the past two months, the pitchers on the main vine have moved...
I recently aquired some plants from another grower here in NC and before taking the plants today I informed him that I did not have the space to grow all these plants at the size they are now and he told me it would be fine for me to share these plants with anybody I wanted. So basically I'm...
I just uploaded over a hundred photos of my collection from the last couple years to my facebook page. I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think. It should be visible to everyone here:
I seem to have a knack...
My young Cephalotus arrived on April 5, 2012.
I planted it in a 2:1 mix of silica sand/peat moss. The extra sand helps keep the soil from staying too soggy, which it seems to appreciate, but it does dry out faster than other soils.
The day after I got it, transplant shock set in, and the tiny...
I got this as a Nepenthes ventricosa, although it doesn't have the hourglass figure or typical peristome. Does anyone know what it is?

Earlier today I posted a photo of my N. hamata (see it here), and here is a follow-up pic: N. spathulata X hamata. No idea how interesting this is going to be as a fully matured plant, but its plenty interesting so far. I doubt it will have a very toothy peristome like the singalana X hamata...
While looking up information for the cultivation I have found that there are very few guides to growing N. villosa, so I thought I would write up a basic guide to its cultivation from the information I have found and my limited experience (two months) with the plant.
Nepenthes villosa or the...
