    Second batch of pitchers in N. ?ventricosa

    Yes, when they are small and erect they produce pitchers... if You stake the bigger and drooping one, it will produce pitchers too... good luck;-)

    Second batch of pitchers in N. ?ventricosa

    In my experience, only with ventrata, is very useful to help plant producing pitchers to plant a stake to sustaine the plant in the pot (like with a tomato’s plant)... a lot of plants of garden centers are sold in hanging baskets without stakes, and the plants don’t make pitchers... another thing... my nepenthes x ventrata never made pitchers in winter... only when there are long days (hours of light) they make pitchers... to my friend that grows them with artificial lights and temperature control they make pitchers all around the year;-)

    Which Nepenthes to Buy?

    Hi! I’ve had a Nepenthes x ventrata and it is a very very strong plant... it grows well inside... the only problem is that it has a very fast grow, so If You have only a little windowswill you must cut it every year... it can become 3 m tall;-)

    Red spots on Campanulata leaves

    Hi Julio! no, the problem isn’t too much light... I’ve asked You if the plant is closer to light bulbs than nepenthes maxima, for exemple... d. Capensis and cephalotus grow very well in direct sunlight and also in hottest temperatures... I’ve grown these species in southest part of Italy in direct sunlight, also in July and August (45 C and more) and they have done well... my nepenthes x ventrata, in the same condition, in direct sunlight of January made red spots, similar to Yours... So I had to move it in shadow... my friend that grows heliamphoras in terrarium have bourned a lot of pitcher lids when the light bulbs were too close to the plants... is it possible that the light bulbs are closer to the leaves or make too much hot climate? If not, it is another problem

    Red spots on Campanulata leaves

    Hi! In my life I only had a very easy to grow nepenthes x ventrata.. I noticed similar red spots when it kept direct sunlight... the sun burnt the leaves... is it possible that You keep it in direct sunlight or too much close to a strong light?

    Differentiating between d. Intermedia and d. Anglica

    Hi Karsty! Did they disappear in winter? Is possible that the hibernacula had rotten? In my experience I’ve lost d. Rotundifolia only in winter due to the too high humidity
