    My Nepenthes Ventricosa is about to die, so I'm in the market for a new CP

    My Nepenthes Ventricosa is about to kick the bucket. I transplated it almost a month ago, and the growing tip is starting to turn brown. It stopped growing a while ago, but I figured it was in transplant shock. It was growing extremely well before I transplanted it, but it looks like it's about to kick the bucket.

    So, I guess I'm in the market for a new carnivorous plant. I need something that will grow basically year round under a lamp. Any suggestions?

    Sundews. Nepenthes. Pings. I grow most of my CPs under lights.

    Sorry bout the Ventricosa.

    I'm considering either a Cape Sundew or a Mexican butterwort.

    But yeah, I feel bad about the Ventricosa because it grew so well for me for almost a year. *sigh*

    If you check out the NASC auction, there are quite a few beginner plants and plant collections. Lots of seed. Pings. Good chance to get some nice items.

    AND...you can always purchase very healthy, beautiful plants from Flytrapshop.com. You know they haven't been tap watered like retail stores do.

    I'm leaning towards a Cape Sundew. "The Savage Garden" says it's a fun and easy plant, etc.

    Capes are great-as long as they aren't out of control! They're realllly common, but that doesn't make them any less incredible. Go for it!
