  1. Hi there guys, Here I have my nepenthes x Miranda. I believe the source of the damage may be cold temperatures, or a combination of cold temperatures and over-watering. I’ve moved the plant from my conservatory to a warmer location where it receives a good dose of sunlight from a south facing window. I’ve stopped watering as much, allowing the pot to dry out slightly. What do you think the chances are of this guy surviving? It looks as though the plant is still producing new growth, as can be seen in the third picture. Thank you for reading and thanks in advance for your support.
  2. Hi there, I'm relatively new to the forum and currently have a nepenthes x ventrata and a nepenthes maxima. I was wondering which species (and sub species) in your collection is the most efficient at trapping prey? Pics of your best fly catcher would be very welcome[emoji106] Cheers, CH
  3. Really nice plants!! Which species do you grow? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I've never grown filiformis myself but I would guess as it can be found in the same habitats as rotundifolia that it will be suffering from heat burn as well. We are at the start of the growing season and so I'm sure they will come round for you. Cheers:) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Hi there, Drosera rotundifolia is a cold temperate species of sundew and should not be subject to very high temperatures. Dormancy is brought on by cooler temperatures (usually around September-October) and so I would doubt that the plants are going dormant now. Where are you growing? If in the U.K. You should consider growing these outdoors year round. Maybe try and position the plant in a shadier, cooler position until it recovers and wait for new growth before you start to slowly acclimatise it to brighter conditions. Lastly, nice luck for getting some freebies. Good growing!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hi there, I'm new to the forum and have recently obtained a nepenthes x ventrata and nepenthes maxima which I grow on on my south-east facing windowsill in my conservatory. It would be cool if people would post pictures of their windowsill grown collection to give me inspiration in other plants to acquire and to show off what can be done in a U.K. windowsill!! Cheers.

  7. Also, if anyone has any recommendations for relatively easy to grow carnivorous species on a uk windowsill (conservatory) I would really appreciate that. Thanks:) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hi there, I am new to the forum and have just started up my collection again after a few years out of the game. Currently, I have a nepenthes x ventrata and have ordered a nepenthes maxima from Hampshire Carnivorous Plants. Both plants will be grown in my conservatory which receives direct sunlight nearly all day. I am located in the Scottish Highlands. Any tips for the cultivation of both nepenthes species would be welcomed and any pictures of these species would be great (especially uk growers!!!). Cheers.
