    Some Stranger Plants

    Figured I might as well put up a photo thread of my humble collection since I'm taking pictures anyway for records. Let's start with N. rafflesiana x ampullaria. The supplier said that despite its heritage it was growing well with the other highlanders. I don't doubt them given the altitude...

Its really hard to see when they aren't fully grown. Currently I have N. Ventricosa, N. Glandulifera, N. Robcantleyi x...

    Caring for Neps with Damaged Roots?

    So long story short I recently received a robcantleyi x hamata with a relatively fragile root system that I suspect was damaged during the whole unpackaging/potting process. It's been about a week and the growth tip is visibly progressing but the bottom most leaf is now yellow. Probably due to...

    INGR / International Nepenthes Grex Registry

    The International Nepenthes Grex Registry (INGR) was an idea conceived and developed in an international forum conference on the internet forum www.pitcherplants.proboards.com in the later months of 2006.

    Hybrids with significant "hybrid vigor"

    Has anyone grown a Nepenthes hybrid with particularly strong "hybrid vigor", either faster growing than the parents, or more tolerant of conditions outside the preferred range of the parents? I have noticed this trait in some hybrids, but not in others. One example I can give from my own...

    Bittersweet Moment

    My robcantleyi has been bothering a bit lately so today I decided to get a little aggressive with it. It made a gnarled leaf about two leaves ago which I didn't want to cut off because I'm usually of the mindset that if its green you shouldn't mess with it. The next leaf developed fine but this...

    Variation within a Species... Posters!

    I will be giving a lecture at the upcoming ICPS conference on Sarracenia and part of my lecture is discussing the definition of a species and how much variation is allowed within a species before a plant needs to be split into a new species. Too often people get the idea that a species...

    Nepenthes robcantleyi x hamata

    Hi, I'm excited about this new plant and was wondering if it will survive outdoors in south florida wether? I have a N. Predator that is doing excellent outside and a N. Robcantleyi x maxima also doing excellent outside.

    Nep. Potting Media Experiment

    Hey Everyone, I've started an bit of an experiment, albeit one that lacks precise scientific rigor. A month ago I came across the CPN sample that talks about creating a potting mix that is 1:1:1 Seramis:Lava Gravel:Lecaton. Having read a lot about the destruction of CP habitats, I decided to...

    N. ventricosa x robcantleyi

    For the past few months, I've had my eye on the N. ventricosa x robcantleyi hybrid from BE, and I have everything I need to care for it, as well as a reasonably large amount I'm willing to spend to get it. The problem is, I live in North America, where, for no reason whatsoever, no CP supplier...

    KNepenthe's Photo Thread

    Hi everyone! I think I finally have enough plants to keep up a little photo thread here for you all :) I set up my first greenhouse about a month ago and the climate change for the plants caused quite a bit of shriveled pitchers while I fine tuned humidity, temp., water, etc. But all the plants...

    Hey, everyone. I just started a collection this past spring/summer-ish. Nothing's died yet (knock on wood). Though, my heli's are limping along. I'll post them when they're not so ew. Everything is pretty young at the moment so not much to look at. Hoping they'll grow up to be half as good...
