  1. The ssp. Corsica too... this ssp. grows in Italy too, in places where there are some quite cold winters (night temperature of 2 or 4 degrees below zero for at least one or two months, with higher temperatures of around 8/10 C for about 3/4 months)...

    so keep them as typical rotundifolia’s seeds;-)

  2. Hi Carambola!! Thanks a lot for identification!!;-) 

    the bug you have seen is a springtail... there are a lot on my sarracenia, and very often they fall in the abyss;-)

    in my opinion it is very interesting to see that, either very far from its natural habitat, a very common purpurea is a little world of small creatures;-)

  3. Great satisfaction to grow this plant from seed!!! So You obtain this plant from only 10 seeds?!!! Great job!!! And thanks for your photos, very useful!! I’ve got a little truncata, bought last october... my dream is to grow from seed this plant!

    I think that your plant hasn’t flowered yet because it needs more time... I red that n. robcantleyi queen of hearths and king of spades flowered at about 10 years old (from seed)... I suspect that truncata is the same... I’ve also red that the seedgrown cross  between king of hearts and king of spades flowers at around 3 years old... and that nepenthes nebularum (supposely a parent of n. robcantleyi for who think that this plant is an hibryd between n. truncata and n. nebularum) also flower at about 3 years... but I’ve never red anything about nepenthes truncata flower age;-)

    I love nepenthes truncata!!!

    p.s.: do You still have other two seedlings or they have died?

    I put here the photo of my little little truncata, growing outside on my windowswill... I’ve cut off the lids to feed the young pitchers with ants;-)

    I put for you also my five seeds supposely of n. truncata (I bought them for e-bay, so I don’t have a lot of expectations);-)




  4. I’m not an expert, but I have a few cephalotus clones... I’ve seen similar things in plants that kept too hot... if it is the cause of the death, the plants will grow again from roots... if Ada is in true (and I hope for you he is wrong, but I know he has a lot of experience and so it is easier that I’m wrong) your plants are dead:-(

    good luck!!!

    p.s.: sorry for my bad English


  5. Wonderful plant... you should put a stick to sustain the plant... if you don’t do it, next year your nepenthes could’t make pitchers..

    p.s.: in winter, if you don’t give addictional light to your plant, it will not make pitchers... it is ok, due to the few hours of light;-)
