Is that N. ventricosa the Porcelain clone/ true species I gave you? That intermediate pitcher is already showing some of the characteristic fluting in the peristome and you can see how the peristome is starting to become more horizontal rather than curling backward.

When it produces true uppers and the conditions are optimal it will be pretty much a solid creamy white color.

I miss my CP hobby... I was a Nepenthes and Sarracenia snob. I don't have room in college or the conditions for them Thats why I'm taking a break and trying planted aquaria now.

Sorry to hijack!

Woot! Nice collection man! Out of total curiosity, how much did you have to shell out for that Nep. jamban? I've never seen that one go for less than 3 digits.

If you ever take cuttings or get some basal shoots from any of your Neps, hit me up. The only tropicals I've got at the moment are N. ventricosa and N. sanguinea at this point, and I want more!

You have a very nice collection going there. How are you keeping all of them? Do you have a greenhouse?

thanks everyone!

@jerry: i currently grow them all in different conditions. the neps, helis, and cephs all grow in a highland terra on my window shelf which helps regulate the temps. the drosera are in a lowland tank. all grown on t5s.

@lego: yeah, the jamban cost me a pretty penny--112 or 120 if you wanted to get specific, cant remember, it's was about a year ago. got it as a birthday present. i'll keep you in mind---i've already promised a basal to someone else, and i want to keep the other one, but if it keeps making basals, i'll pm you.

...I'm going to admit, I have no idea what it is. But that last one, Pinguicula agnata. It's so beautiful. And I want one. And I can't have one, because I know I'd kill it.
I can't even grow a venus flytrap, no.

....Do you have to hand feed them? (Yeah, you can't tell I wandered in here and got lost.)
Those are so awesome.

@allegoriest: it's called a butterwort. this species originates from Mexico, and can be grown as a tropical plant. bright but not direct light, grown in damp but not waterlogged conditions. and i do hand feed my plants (more with like tweezers) since there arent many bugs inside the house. there's a sporadic supply of fungus gnats, but not enough to keep the plants happy.

Just like allegoriest I stumbled upon the wrong forum section and found this thread. I am very glad I did because I did not see this whole other world of plants! I did not know that there were more carnivorous plants past the venus flytrap. I think some of these guys were the inspiration for pokemon like weepinbell and victreebel


Thanks for the inspiration. I think I'll be looking into carnivorous plants for the future. Very cool.

Where did you get all the amazing Nepenth? They all look so great! I have N. alata and N. miranda. I bought the miranda while in FL. Now that I have brought it back to VA, it's not growing pitchers. It seems to have stopped growing; just staying the way it was (minus the old pitchers). I have moved both to a humidity tray. Is there anything that would cause the delay in growth? They are both indoors (and like I said, now on a humidity tray with artificial light). Thanks!
