  1. I need some help caring for my nepenthes ventrata, but before I start should probably tell you about the hell I’ve put it through.(my first plant bought at a festival) I’ve cut off yellowed leaves, given it fertilizer, and left it in direct sunlight longer than it needs. Pretty sure its a ventrata because any other nepenthes probably would have died by now. Its been a year now and i’ve gotten really into gardening and would like to start over(working on bromeliad,coleus,and lungwort). It has orchid bark and spagnum moss, gets well watered with distilled/collected rain water once a day. Also ha
  2. Hi everyone, I am Griff! I'm new to growing Carnivorous Plants, and I am interested in growing Nepenthes. I just got my first CP on Wednesday, a Nepenthes x. 'Ventrata', at my local greenhouse. Can't wait to learn more about growing this wonderful plant. Can't wait to hear from you guys.
  3. So my Alata nepenthes has been working on some seeds for a while now and I was thinking I might eventually take some seeds for my own and grow some more to carry on the generation. How would I go about “harvesting/collecting” the seeds and when? (Pic attached for reference)
  4. Well, this is going to be my greenhouse (or more specifically, Nephouse) build thread. Starting from the very beginning When Ian Salter got me into Carnivorous plants 12 months ago, i was living in a first floor flat with no access to a garden, only my windowsills. A few weeks ago, i officially moved from South Wales to Wigan to be with my partner of 3 years full time. Roughly 20 years ago, she had a 24 foot x 10 foot static caravan installed in the garden to live in while the house was being demolished and rebuilt. This caravan was never removed after the house was finished, and remained a
  5. Hello everyone! Could you please help me? I am a bit worried, this is what I found recently next to my baby pitcher plant: https://imgur.com/uJPmjLH 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!
  6. 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?
  7. Hi everyone, I'll have to make some cuttings of some of my Neps soon, and I was wondering what is the best "rooting medium" for the cuttings you've succesfully used so far. I've read about sphagnum moss (dead), living sphagnum, pure perlite... What is the best, from your own direct experience? And by curiosity, how did it take from the day of the cutting to the first root appearance? Cheers Vincent
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Hi Folks, Here's a pic of my latest creation... https://photos.app.goo.gl/HXh26PPVbIHoYSLQ2 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 to
  11. 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 f
  12. Hello everyone...I,m new on here and everyone seems very helpful...in 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

  14. I am growing a variety of Nepenthes and a few orchids and I am looking to trying to grow some Nepenthes from seed.
  15. Anyone know what this could be?
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. Hi there, in the last weeks I took some fotos from my terrarium-plants and like to show them to you. Some of the terras are very crowded, due to the fact, that the plants do grow and grow and... (Who'd have thunk? ). I'm not quite sure, how to get the plants out there some day... It's a mix of younger and older Nepenthes and Heliamphora. So, here are the pics, hope you enjoy them. Best regards, Christian ... to be continued
  20. 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!
  21. 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!
  22. 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
  23. 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?...

    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.
  25. 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 th
