    Hello. My Nepenthes - Robcantleyi x (sibuyanensis x ventricosa)
  5. Hi Do Nepenthes worry much about what potting mix is used if I use coir, peat and perlite? The coir I had before had some large chunks about 20mm wide but the one I have now does not have them. It is https://www.bunnings.com.au/brunnings-90l-coir-power-garden-soil-mulch-block_p2960146 . Currently I have sphagnum based peat and medium grade perlite mixed up in equal proportions which I use for Sarracenia and plan to add other things to that mix for Nepenthes. The size of the perlite is about 4mm. I am wondering what proportion of my current coir I could mix with my current peat and perlite mix and if I should add some material with larger particles like large grade perlite that has particles of 10 mm. I heard about other things like pine bark as well but am not sure where to buy suitable stuff. Another possibility is if I could buy coir somewhere with just larger particles to mix in. However, perlite may be easier to get and am wondering what proportion of the larger size to add if I used it. Another alternative would be to use 50% peat and 50% large grade perlite that has a particle size of about 10mm and not use the mix I made with the medium grade and keep that for Sarracenia and perhaps not use the coir at all but use it for something else. Could that be better? Regards Richard.
  6. I have a nepenthe Alana (I think) that’s been vigorously growing for about four years. It has well over 100 growing tips with some tendrils over 20 feet in length. This year, after flowering in March, new branches started growing from a node just beneath the flower spike. As I’m not looking for seed I’ve cut off the flowers soon after they appeared fortunately the branches continued to grow on at least 50% of the growing tips plus all the other branching that develop normally. The new pitcher development is abundant A problem I’ve had in the past, I’m hoping not this year, is that although the pitchers last a long time, if fact many from last year are still alive and packed with insects, they (the upper half of the pitchers ) turn brown within the first 2-3 months. This doesn’t seem problematic for the overall health of the plant but it isn’t very attractive. Does anyone know a way to prevent it or at least stop it from happening this year - photo attached _

  8. Hello I am struggling with this northiana. It grows in typical Malaysian weather and get watered twice a day for a short while. It also gets 50% shade.Thank you
  9. Good Night, One question, i have seen some amazing setups for terrarium which works with a waterchiller. I want to a less tech terrarium system, my problem is that i have 3 terrarium 60x45x45 and i have only a water chiller haliea150a able to cool water to 6ºC (30L max). My question is that people use for cooling the water to the tank and the radiator but i wanted to know if i can get 14-16ºC at night cooling my isolated terrariums only with radiators (the water conected to them would come from an isolated box with 10-20L is enough at 6ºC). The reason is that if i want to cool directly the water and the radiator i would have to cool 100-140L of water and i dont think i could set that amount of water to that lower temperature 6-10ºC im attaching a schema image and a sample video My setup: other similar setups: This would be my setup! Thanks to all and a happy new year!
  10. When I went to Malaysia me and a friend went to a ‘nepenthes garden’. If you are an enthusiast please visit it as it probably will close because it gets too few visitors. It is in Hulu Kinta near Ipoh and has many plants other than nepenthes as well. Anyway here are the pictures of the neps. :)
  11. Hello so when I was In Ipoh I visited the Nepenthes park in Kledang Siaong which is about 2 hours from Kuala Lumpur also if you ever visit on the roadside there are tons of Nepenthes Gracilis and apparently on the road up Gunung Kledang some green and spotted Nepenthes Albomarginata also there are Drosera Burmanii which I am trying to find. In this park there were many Nepenthes approximately 72 different types of nepenthes all lowlanders as well as some highlanders, And to my amazement they had 3 Nepenthes clipeatas growing in the ground. The conditions at this place were. average day temperature is 32 Celsius and night is 24 Celsius, The plants had 50 % shade cloth, Were growing in soil from the local construction site which was very well draining and made up of sand,Clay bits of red compacted clay and some decaying leaves also the Salaginella growing with the plants helped keep the soil good and create pockets of air in the soil with its thick roots, the plants were also watered twice a day by a hose pipe. Nepenthes Clipeata Bonus Nepenthes Sumatrana according to the guy is the only place he knows in cultivation where it grows like the ones in the wild this is also the same for the Khasiana and Ampullaria as well as the Bical which all grew like the wild types. Khasiana Ampullaria Bicalcarata Thank you.

  14. Visit to Redleaf exotics on April 14th, 2018~ I have a ton more photos im just too lazy to edit them all I will be going to the ICPS conference this year - hope to see some of you fellow plant nerds there! Nepenthes (ventricosa x sibuyanensis)-giant x {[ventricosa x (spathulata x lowii)] x trusmadiensis} ‘EP’ Nepenthes (ventricosa x sibuyanensis)-giant x {[ventricosa x (spathulata x lowii)] x trusmadiensis} ‘EP’ Nepenthes truncata x [(veitchii x maxima) x veitchii] ‘EP’ Nepenthes veitchii 'candy dreams' truncata x jaq some really nice pitcher, but I cant tell if its just a really nice truncata or a hybrid ;) flava x sib Sorry for so much lowii - you know me
  15. 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 have been adjusting vines onto wire to give it more support. Just recently started keeping it outside because of the warmer weather hoping it would start to pitcher again. If anyone has any thoughts, recommendations, tips, or if anyone needs to tell me im doing something wrong please do im open to anything. pictures in link below http://sam001.zenfolio.com/
  16. 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.
  17. 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)
  18. 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 large dumping ground for general tat and rubbish. The garden had also got very overgrown from years of neglect. This is the scene soon after i started work. The caravan was mostly obscured by brambles, so clearing and laying old carpet as a weed suppressant was the first job in order to easily gain access all around the caravan. Still quite a bit to do, as the capacitor on our garden shredder burnt out and i'm currently waiting on delivery of a new one. Many trips to the local recycling centre have already been made with loads of rubbish and junk from inside the caravan, and what little remains to be cleared is piled outside. The four trees to the left of the picture are apple and pear trees, which are in need of some serious pruning and tidying up. But we've successfully made some rather good cider with them during my visits up to Wigan over the past few years. (hic! ) Originally, the plan was to convert this huge 24x10 into a greenhouse by removing the upper half of the side cladding all round and replacing with twinwall polycarbonate. The same was going to be done to the flat felted roof, but with a slight apex conversion for water collection via added guttering. However, after removing all interior walls, insulation, and room partitions, it was discovered that the caravan was rotten in places. (Note the dismantled garden shredder awaiting the delivery of new capacitor !) So far we've got 15 large rubble sacks full of good timber for our woodburning stove from the interior and i estimate at least another 15 sacks to come. The aluminium cladding once removed, will be re-used to clad our old 12x8 garden shed, which will hopefully cure all the leaks between the parting dried out shiplap so we get a few more years use out of it. The polystyrene insulation boards from the static caravan will also be used to insulate the inside of the garden shed. All the good 4x2 beams from under the floorboards will be re-used to build benches/staging in the new greenhouse. I've also reclaimed metres upon metres of flat twin and earth cable which is in perfect condition considering it's age, and this will come for all the heating/cooling/lighting/pumping/watering wiring systems. We aim to recycle as much as possible from the caravan dismantling. The caravan already has connected water and electricity supplies, which will save a lot of work and they'll only require extending into the new greenhouse position. Even though we intend using rainwater from butts for the plant watering, fresh water for general washing and cleaning of equipment will be an added bonus (we'll be re-using the original sink/drainer top from the caravan). So that's the state of play so far. Still loads to do before the caravan is totally removed, including cutting up of the steel chassis, and then ground clearing and levelling so i can then get the greenhouse ordered. We've decided upon a Rion 12x8 Hobby. I'm very excited about this project and can't wait to see things taking shape over the coming months. Stay tuned !
  19. 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!
