  1. Hello everyone! Could you please help me? I am a bit worried, this is what I found recently next to my baby pitcher plant: It is a very weird looking stuff... is it mold? Has anyone ever had this kind before? It has just appeared now, before I had no problems with the little ones. Thank you in advance for your advice!
  2. My latest creation...

    Hi Folks, Here's a pic of my latest creation... I had languishing Nepenthes 'Bloody Mary', which was dark green, and growing, but small and not producing pitchers. And I spotted a nice little N. x hookeriana at a local garden centre for £7. I also had a 6-inch section of tree fern hanging around. So I snapped up the x hookeriana, and hatched a plan. I split the tree fern section in 2 with an axe, and manipulated the top edge of one piece to plant both these Nepentheses on it with some live sphagnum. I then sat it on top of the other piece, and sat the whole creation on top of a bed of charcoal with a bit of sphagnum in between, in a nice glazed saucer (~8 It gets late morning to midday sun. We shall see what happens..... (The stacks of side-mounted weird-looking leaves are Platycerium bifurcatum. The trailing plant at top-right is Ceropegia sandersonii. The shooting plant at the bottom is a crazy cultivar of Euphorbia pulcherrima with gold-flecked red bracts - I will not be able to make it flower again!)
  3. Photo from greenhouse_1

    Hi I took some photos of my Nepenthes...hope you will enjoy it: N. copelandii - upper pitchers and behind lower pitcher N. truncata N. maxima (a got it like N. eymae) N. rajah N. burbidgeae - 2 different plants, upper pitcher ist just forming in behind Andrej
  4. Two weeks ago the leaves of my N. spectabilis started to look a bit different from my other Nepenthes'. I haven't seen this before and the old leaves are still green and smooth. Does anyone know why the leaves suddenly have this white layer and what it is? See photos below.
  5. Hi Folks, I'm getting a bit desperate! A while ago I acquired this fully glazed fridge with one side smashed. I thought, "Hey, ultra highland Nepenthes!!!" so with great enthusiasm I embarked on a mission to fix it and sell it with a reasonable profit. So many weeks later, after discovering that to have a new double glazed unit fitted would cost £200, I opted for the basic repair, single glazed, toughened glass, £75. So it is sitting in my small flat, and I keep tripping over it. If I had the time and space I would probably use it to grow Nepenthes villosa or some such other exotic from seed. It's got LED lighting already quite profusely inside it. I've had the top off it, and it would be possible to rig up the lights and refrigeration independently to timers, and I'm sure you could also add lights if necessary. It is really well built, being made for pub use. It has a low energy usage, being marketed as an "eco-cooler". It's got 3 removable shelves. When the refrigeration is on the 2 fans make a bit of a whooshing noise so you may have to be cautious about having it in a sleeping area. I've posted it up here a couple of times, and I've got it on eBay. But nobody wants it! Seriously folks, can none of you make use of this at all??? Bewildered Karsty.
  6. Hello everyone...I,m new on here and everyone seems very particular Tom, who actuall was kind enough to donate some plants, and lives near me..very generous person. I,m still on the lookout for more plants, cuttings or seeds..I,m not a collector where I have to have the rarest ones, just have a soft spot for Nepenthes and wanting to enlarge my collection. If anyone has anything moderately priced please let me know? Thanks for your time cheers Steve
  7. Connected Nepenthes?

    So, I bought a Nepenthes x ventrata recently, and I have some questions about nepenthes vining. So, my questions are, if when my Nepenthes starts a vine I bury the vine in another pot with a growth point just below the surface, will it form a seperate connected rosette, will the vine stop or continue growing, and will the two rosettes be able to share minerals, water and such over the vine connecting them? Or will they just separate eventually?

  9. I am growing a variety of Nepenthes and a few orchids and I am looking to trying to grow some Nepenthes from seed.
  10. unidentified Nepenthes

    Anyone know what this could be?
  11. Hi guys,sadly due to pressure of work commitments, I will NOT be hosting an open day this year but hopefully we will be back again next year,all the best,paul.
  12. unidentified Nepenthes

    I got this plant labeled as Nepenthes distillatoria but I'm pretty sure it is not. Anyone know what it is? The first two pictures are from when I just got the plant about a year ago, and the second is a recent basal that pitchered. Could it be Nepenthes danseri? There are some pictures of the plant at the end of this thread as well.
  13. Germinating Nepenthes

    I was having a look on here and could not see any posts specifically going through the steps of germinating Nepenthes Edwardsiana (or even nepenthes in general doing a search for "Germinating Nepenthes") Feel free to link a post if there is one. I bought some seeds online and yes they maybe fake or not, they came from Sri Lanka, Sencirareseeds. Are they well known? Currently I have some in an incubator at 28 C and another batch on the window sill at cooler temperatures. 21 C in the day down to 15 C in the night. Any tips would be great!
  14. Hey guys, Just need some advice on the temperatures for N. Eymae, I'm currently in process of ex vitro for my Nepenthes Eymae, it's still a pretty small TC plant. Anyone had any success growing it under lowland conditions? I can provide for both conditions with my terrarium, but of course, would love to do it on my NE facing windowsill with temps of 26 - 30C day and 24 - 26C Nights. Humidity levels lowest would be around 69% and night humidity levels of around 85 - 90% Thanks!
  15. Nepenthes Advice

    Hi all, I picked up a nepenthes plant at a local garden centre today and I just wanted some advice on caring for it, the media it was in was bone dry and I've included pictures to show what the pictures and leaves look like. I just want to make sure I'm doing the right things to get the plant happy and healthy! Thank you in advance for any advice!
  16. Sup. Been quite some time since I've been active on here..anyway I'm back and I'm going to show you my plants... --here's my n.veitchii x burbidgeae who's recovered very well from its disaster... --here's my n.ventricosa x talangensis of which has grow a lot since... -with multiple basals... -....and flower stalk --here's a completely new plant,n.maxima x burbidgeae of which I love... --again here another new plant,n.singalana x burkei --and finally here's my n.ventrata ----------------- Here are some of my favorite pitchers so far... -n.ventricosa x talangensis -n.maxima x burbidgeae -n.singalana x burkei So that's it in the near future I hope to be getting a 6x8 greenhouse with shelving,plants and maybe even a hydrofogger...

  17. N. Alata ID Confirmation

    I've had a Nepenthes for ages now bought as N.Alata but I see such variation when I see images of others sold as the same and images of Ventrata looking extremely similar to mine too... Heres some pics of mine, what do people think it is? True Alata or hybrid?...
  18. Hi

    Hi Everyone, A friend of mine told me to just sign up in this international cp forum. I would like to get Nepenthes, but I wonder if this is possible with the outside temperatures at the moment, can anybody help me? I am searching for: -N. villosa, N. hamata, N. aristolochioides, N. ephippiata and N. lowii I do have some experience with pitcher plants though a friend of mine is kind of a pro with it ;) With kind regards E.
  19. what do you think?

    I know the question I am going to ask probably has been asked over and over. I took my intermediate nepthenes out of its terrarium and put it on my south facing window seal. The question I have is do you think it will be okay there? the temp is between 90-95 and humidity is at 20-25% and at night temp is 70 and humidity it 69%. I plan on buying a humidifier and putting it around it if I need too and I also mist it in the morning and night. The nepenthes is a Brunei red X (spectabilis 'giant X ventricosa) and I am also thinking of putting my n. alata there too. I know it might be one of thoses deals try it and see, but what are your thoughts.
  20. Watering after pollinisation?

    Hi everyone, I'll try to pollinate my N. campanulata soon, but I have a technical question to improve the success rate. Do you stop watering the flowers in order to avoid washing off the pollen? Thanks for the advices.

  23. Hello, Let me show you couple of pictures from my trip to the top of G. Trusmadi.
  24. Unknown Nepenthes

    I purchased this plant a few weeks ago as Nepenthes distillatoria, but it looks rather different from pictures of distillatoria online, especially with the upper half of the pitcher being mottled. Anyone know what it could be? Unfortunately there is only one pitcher on the plant.
  25. A few pictures of my Nepenthes and Grow setup

    Here are some quick shots of my hep seedlings. I forgot to turn the leds off so they're a bit pink. here are a few more. Here are a few more, I just got a new point and shoot so I'm fiddling around with it. maybe these came out little better? only thing is this time the fogger was on, gah can't get it just right yet. I guess I have to do it wrong before I do it right. Here is a tiny N. kinabaluensis (N. villosa x N. rajah) despite its size I really like the shape its grown into very shapely for such a small specimen. two seed grown hamata and a small AW macro, among others. N. ramspina N. jamban and N. lowii an old BE N. hamata shadowing three sg eddies N. flava finally starting to look flava like N. vietchii already striping itself out and a complete chamber shot. Here is a cool little rajah, I got it at the same time as the other 4 and its from the same seed pod but its growth is really out pacing the others. thank you for looking. As I figure out how to take better pics and maybe a vid I'll try to improve the photo quality and color.
