I would love to add this to my small terrarium as my lone sundew since I lost my only D. falconeri quite some time ago before it could really take off. I have several different plants available for trade:
About three weeks ago I decided to take cuttings from my Nepenthes tobaica. I followed the instructions exactly how they appear on Peter D'Amato's book 'The Savage Garden'. I even used a rooting hormone (but not a fungicide). I planted the cuttings in pure vermiculite, covered them with a...

My Nepenthes have been doing great over this winter, but two of them have been doing a bit *too* well.
My ventrata, grown as a houseplant, lost most its pitchers (possibly from the shock of moving to a lower humidity level), but then started producing a vine and two basal shoots. Both basals...
2 yrs ago all of my Cps died off in a terrarium fungus incident of disastrous proportions. I am starting over again, growing my CP's with more light, less humidity and more air movement.

I plan on making a purchase of probalby 2-3 neps.. I was thinking along the line of

Well, after several false starts and stupid mistakes, I got an N. tobaica several months ago, and it's been doing very well. In fact, it's been doing a bit *too* well. Quite a while ago, the growing point just spontaneously died, and as a result at least 4 new ones formed, and all have been...

Last week, while in the process of hacking back a Nepenthes thicket that appears to have "gotten away" from me lo these past six months, I accumulated quite a pile of fresh pitchers clipped from the plants that I grow in a commercial greenhouse.
Epiphany: I loaded about 20 of them...
