    Unhappy Any trouble plants? A list of trouble

    I am trying to make a thread on the CPs that you have trouble with. My personal problem was Nepenthes talangensis because it wouldnt pitcher. Then I forgot to water it and it went to heaven. However, despite this horrible deed, if someone or someones give a few tips then I am willing to start anew. Also post other plants you have trouble with.

    Thankyou and happy early Christmas

    Hmm... what time of year was it?
    Most of my Nepenthes do not pitcher in winter.
    That being said, so far, the one species I've had trouble with is Sarracenia minor

    any CP has the potential to be a problem plant if its growing perimeters arent respected. that being said N. villosa was the only plant i've ever had problems with. temperature controls are too hard to keep during the summer. the fact that the plant was smaller than my pinkie nail, might have had something to do with it as well.
    N. talangensis needs high humidity and low temperatures (mid 70s day, low 50s night). mine didnt pitcher during the summer, but has started growing in full force now that the weather has cooled down.

    N. northiana.....needs more airflow than one would suspect.

    N. jacquelineae .....Can't remember how to spell it's name, which is troublesome enough, but finding out what temps light level it likes best is even more so....

    N. ventricosa.....I thought they were easy to grow?!?......not for me they aint, they don't like it too warm or too cold.....kinda picky.

    N. rajah.....I tried one....grew great till the LFS died, so I suspect that they may need a mix that's mostly perlite.

    I don't know...from what I've seen, it likes constant temps of about 72F...no more, no less.
