Maturation period of nepenthes edwardsiana

  • Thread starter VPD
  • Start date
I spent a lot of money purchasing nepenthes edwardsiana cuttings and growing them. How long does it take for a plant to mature into a flowering plant?20231226_200946.jpg
 
It's very hard to say because there are so few mature edwardsiana in cultivation with owners willing to cut them down for cuttings. There just isn't a lot of information of how quickly they should establish from cuttings. Where did you source your's from? Cuttings from wild plants simply are not sustainable and your wording implys you have multiple, which would be even more remarkable.

thank you. I bought this plant from someone else in Korea. I bought several, but all of them died except that one. They say this is the mother body

It could take upwards of a decade or more for a Nepenthes to reach flowering maturity, from seed. My eldest seed-grown plant flowered at ten years.

That said, it could easily take five to seven years for an ultra-highland cutting to the same, since they are generally slow-growing . . .

Congrats! What's (was?) your plan for that pollen?

Thanks.

The flower was from last January and had been distributed among growers just before Spring. It has yet to send up another . . .
 
Mine has got a long time to go before it's anywhere near that stage. Very jealous
