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!
Konnichiwa! First of all, I am not a Nepenthes enthusiast, but I like Nepenthes. I am quite unfamiliar with Nepenthes. In fact, I have been hardly growing Nepenthes in greenhouse. I remember the disappointed look (facial expression) of the great German Nepenthes & Heliamphora specialist, who is a worldwide distributer, when he saw a dying tiny Nepenthes (only one I had in my greenhouse at that time) in my Byblis greenhouse (see the far bottom in the page 1 of the thread: http://icps.proboards.com/thread/2348/scented-byblis?page=1 ) after the ICPS international conference in 2002. Back to the subject, My German friend (not the above-mentioned specialist, but he is also a specialist) kindly sent Nepenthes eymae seeds to me in 2013. I sowed the seeds in vitro, they germinated very well. Recently when I was tidying up the refrigerator, I found the remaining of the seeds without silica gel. Just curiosity, I sowed the seeds on February 9 in 2018. The seed was 5 years old. I noticed its germination a few days ago. I took the photos on March 2 in 2018. I have often heard the viability of Nepenthes seed is quite short. It might be the fact when it came to the Lowlanders? What is your experience?
