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...
I finally got around to putting organizing a bit and putting together a trade list. Please take a look and EMAIL (ellisonk001 at Hawaii dot rr dot com) me if you would like to work out a swap. USA only.
I am primarily interested in nepenthes, but will consider all reasonable offers.
I have read about 5 different methods of germinating Nep seeds, and have decided that I am going to give it a GO. Going to order a couple species of Lowland neps, and give it a shot. The site I am looking at currently offers Rafflesiana, Tenax, Albomarginata, Madagascariensis, Truncata, and a...
D. muscipula (normal)
N. bicalcarata (Brunei orange)
N. bicalcarata (Sarawak Giant)
N. ampullaria (Brunei spotted)
N. mirabilis (Red Globosa Viking)
N. rafflesiana (seedlings)
S. leucophylla 'Tarnok'
So I've had this N. rafflesiana for about 6 years now. Unfortunately I cannot provide the humidity that it needs to pitcher or look healthy in my dorm room. During the summers it will occasionally develop awesome pitchers, but when the humidity drops the plant suffers. It is 18 inches from one...
I have the following seeds harvested 2 days ago.
1) N. mirabilis globosa (Viking)
2) N. mirabilis globosa x bicalcarata
3) N. mirabilis globosa x rafflesiana
4) N. mirabilis globosa x hirsuta
(1) was made a few times using the same parents. Seeds proven fertile.
This is the first time I made...
Okay, so for a while I've been making posts about how I am planning on doing another few giveaways, and I have decided that instead of doing all of them in separate threads in different weeks, I'm going to do one major giveaway right here.
For all who know me well (and those who can...
I just thought I'd start a thread about fun and interesting Nepenthes observations. Feel free to chime in, and pictures are always appreciated.
First up, and the inspiration for this thread, is that N. rafflesiana, at least for me, is the plant which has its pitchers grow the most after...
Trading the plant shown in the photos above, which is growing in a 4" pot.
I am looking to trade it for any of the following:
Drosera ‘Dreamsicle’ (Florida all-red form of D. filiformis var. filiformis × anthocyanin-free D. filiformis var. tracyi)
Drosera filiformis "Florida Giant"
I have setup a new terrarium and would like to run a mister continuously from 8am-8pm, the nepenthes have well draining soils and get morning sun then filtered from 11am onwards, temps are 23C-25C at night and 24C-32C by day, the reason for the misting time is that I have attached a miniature...
Natural light levels
Bright light all day without direct sunlight on plants.
All of my Neps are in natural light so I took readings using a light meter. The first reading was taken at 10am and by 4pm, the light level has gone up by at least 2000 lux at the shadiest spot and at the...
Nepenthes burbidgea x platychila
Nepenthes ventricosa x ephippiata
Both plants are over 12" across and are very fast and robust growers.
I'm looking for:
alata - Surigao
albomarginata - Penang
argentii - SG
argentii - BCP Clones
Hey Y'all! I'm back from college and my plants aren't even dead! :-O
Anyways, these guys have been sitting under their lights in plastic tupperware bins with the bottom full of about a half inch of water for the past three months. No other care was given, only water and light.
N. singalana x...

From previous forum posts, I've learned that eBay sellers almost never take their own photos and the seeds, if viable, are probably something common, so obviously, when I found the following picture on an eBay sale, I figured that it was from somewhere else. My Google Image search...
How many here are from the deep south?
I've been on TF for a long time but I realized I have never introduced myself. All I can say is that I'm a plant fanatic. I love all plants and want one of each. Of course that doesn't always work out in the heat and humidity that I have to deal with so...
I'm interested in expanding my collection of rafflesiana and ampullaria. Looking for almost all varieties of rafflesiana, ampullaria, or x hookeriana. Cuttings or unrooted basals are fine. I have a handful of rooted cuttings and many plants in need of a trimming, I'm sure we can work something...
