Lowland Companions

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I’m in the process of building a lowland Nepenthes greenhouse, to grow some of my favourites (ampullaria, bicalcarata and albomarginata amongst others). 

It’ll be shaded, as most of the lowland neps don’t appreciate full sun. Having said that, I could only shade part of it.

My question is, what other CP’s (or plants in general) will go well in here? I’m thinking maybe some tropical sundews, but that’s all that come to mind?

Nepenthesman, have you observed any Drosera species living near lowland Nepenthes?

Drosera burmannii and d. spathulata grow in the same areas as many lowland nepenthes. 

I’d add bamboo orchids (Arundina) to the suggestion list, they look pretty and often grow together with nepenthes gracilis and nepenthes mirabilis along roadsides in Malaysia.
