    Came home to a surprise!

    Whan I came home from school today, my mom had bought me...

    NEPENTHES VENTRICOSA!!!



    right now it is in pure sphagnum moss, I'm pretty sure that's an ok mix. And I'm also pretty sure it can sit on my window sill for now without a plastic bag around it for humidity... I think. I'm so exited!!! the only thing is that it has no pitchers.

    Try to not keep the pot standing in water, Nepenthes don't like that....otherwise its a pretty easy nep. Did you get that from home depot? at my home depot they have the same plant, soil and pot congrats again!

    My mom got it for me from a place called "the pond clinic" and apparently they have more neps there with 10 inch long pitchers!!

    and pet, it isn't sitting in water, it is just in a tray so when I water it water doesn't go all over my floor and stuff.

    yes, it was certainly not Vent with those pitchers, that would be awsome. lol. I thought she might be talking about a truncuta or maxima... does maxima get that big? and I don't think I spelled truncuta right...
