Greenhouse Nepenthes Part 3 (English subtitles provided) This time we show a special hybrid, Nepenthes eymae x clipeata, which we received as a small seedling from Paul Debbert in 1991. In the meantime it became a flowering female with many active pitchers on the long shoots. Adventurous is the story of our N. mirabilis "Cairns", which developed splendidly since 1995. For this we make a short excursion to its natural habitat in Queensland, Australia. Our N. ramispina forms plenty of pitchers as well as the N. rafflesiana var. alata, already presented in the 2nd part of our Nepenthes series, which developed into a real feast for the eyes with currently 22 active upper pitchers. Enjoy!
NEPENTHES 4 CUTTINGS This time we are looking in our greenhouse for pitcher plants (Nepenthes), for which because of their attractive pitchers we often get requests for cuttings from you. First of all, there is Nepenthes rafflesiana var. alata, which is much sought after because of the striking frills on its lower pitchers, and which also forms quite large upper pitchers. Similarly often asked for is N. ventricosa "Porcelain", which as the name suggests is popular because of its porcelain look lower pitchers. Before we take a look at our most popular hybrid N. veitchii x edwardsiana, we will show you the development of the seed pods of our N. bicalcarata female, of which at least a few are starting to swell after the pollination end of December. Unfortunately, no more cuttings can be pre-ordered at the moment, the demand was simply too great. Enjoy!
