    I need advice

    Yeah I agree with Manders. If your new to growing Nepenthes, look at some easy growing species or hybrids to start off with (N. Ventricosa, Ventrata, Maxima ect).

    Beautiful plants. Do you have any recent pics of your N. Robcantleyi?

    My Nepenthes are dying...

    Yeah, I'm sure reducing watering will improve their growth. Maybe repot the ones in the peatmoss/ bark in the future with a less dense mixture might really help prevent too much water-retainment. If you do need to replace your N. Lowii (hopefully not), Christian Klein might have some (sg) Trusmadi available which are reasonably priced. Hope all the best.

    My Nepenthes are dying...

    Thanks for the pictures, whats the humidity inside the propagator? Nepenthes can die very quickly from root rot if you think it was caused by over-watering.

    Nepenthes Nepenthes rajah x veitchii conditions

    If its the recent Borneo Exotics cross I believe both parents are highlanders so would need highlander conditions. I don't think this cross has been done before by any large vendors (can someone correct me if i'm wrong), so there might not be any mature specimens of the plant. Hope this helps

    Any pics of N.(talangensis x TM) x (ventricosa x TM)?

    Thanks gabgabinou. You can see the plant has a lot of potential!
  15. Hi, just wanted to ask if anyone has any pictures of a matured specimen of EP's N. (talangensis x TM) x (ventricosa x TM)? Mine unfortunately died a while back so I was interested what the plant turned out to look like. Thanks Elliott
