  1. How do you over-winter your Cephalotus (in the UK)?

    Im a bit apprehensive to continue with the experiment... I have decided to bring it in and see what happens.. It has had a cold period now. I can still compare it to my other cephs that I kept indoors and see what the difference will be in growth. Do cephs need a dormancy period?
  2. Nepenthes Leaf help.

    Any updates?
  3. Connected Nepenthes?

    Very interesting question. I have never seen anyone try this so maybe other ppl will know? Are you going to try this as an experiment?
  4. Jurkylius nepenthes

    I can't see the pictures?
  5. Nepenthes rajah

    Looks good! I have one thats of similar size, but mine is struggling a bit. How often do you water yours?
  6. Forcing Nepenthes to pitcher?

    Wow that looks really great, It looks a bit like a lowland nep but i think you can grow it highland too? I looked up N. suki: its N. rafflesiana x sibuyanensis. I have N. hookeriana (rafflesiana x ampullaria) and a N. sibuyanensis. I'm growing both in highland conditions.
  7. How do you over-winter your Cephalotus (in the UK)?

    Update: So i was planning to overwinter my ceph outside all winter. It had tons of new growth. It started to freeze here + it is very humid. All the new growth turned brown and my ceph doesnt look all that happy either. So im puting it in the shed anyways. My experiment failed....

  11. What is this white stuff on my Nepenthes leaves?

    Im not sure what it is, but since the environment has an influence on it, I have the feeling its a protective meganism from the plant to sth bad in the environment. For now im blaming low humidity.
  12. My latest creation...

    It's always interesting to see alternative setups. Very interesting to see how the Nep roots deal with that!
  13. What is this white stuff on my Nepenthes leaves?

    I have also noticed it on some of the leaves of my N. sanguinea, but i don't think that one is pure. It could be a hybrid. I have moved them around a bit so they are not in the sunlight anymore. My neps dont really dry out, i water them every other day. It could be low humidity, so im trying to raise that as well. I'm still trying to figure out what exactly causes it, if i think i figured it out i will let you know.
  14. How do you over-winter your Cephalotus (in the UK)?

    Here in holland i overwinter my cephs in the shed.. I am going to experiment with the first all winter outdoor ceph. If it gets too cold, I might still put it in the shed or indoors... but we'll see how the winter goes. We can have pretty cold winters here
  15. What is this white stuff on my Nepenthes leaves?

    I dont fertilise my nepenthes and i only give them rainwater. I have moved some nepenthes around, and noticed it disappeared from the leaves now. I think it is when direct sunlight hit the leaves that the leaves responded with this. They dont have leafburn. Im still not sure what to think of it.
