    New plant! Yay! N. burbidgea x campanulata






    Now I was really darn impressed with the packaging of this plant, it was basically in a sturdy death cube to keep it from being crushed.

    Usually when I get a new plant thats already potted, I avoid repotting it to minimize stress, however the media in this plants pot was DISGUSTING. It smelt like fungus/mold, was a dark green algae color, and was squishy and mushy. It looked like an 100% (rotting) sphagnum mix so likely the air getting to the roots was minimal.

    Not to mention there looked to be what I can only describe as eggs on the surface of the sphagnum. I didnt wait around long enough to find out what they belonged to, and I quickly trashed the old media. I inspected the plant closely and couldnt find any signs of pests, but just to be safe, I squirted the plant down and also washed my hands before continuing with the repotting. (Wanted to make sure I didnt leave any of the eggs behind)

    So now its in a fresh pot with fresh media and has joined my windowsill army.. it appears to be a very healthy little plant and hopefully it takes the acclimation well!

    Nepenthes sibyuanensis x spectabilis!




    Im a little worried this might be frost damage..? Im not entirely sure waht frost damage would look like, but this suddenly pinkish red leaf looks kind of concerning.

    The red color means the plant is getting enough light. A lot of Nepenthes gain red in their leaves under strong lighting; were it damage, it wouldn't turn red, it would turn brown.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I know that much, but the red shade looks kinda sickly gray in person.. Dunno, Ill give it some time. Its probably nothing!

    N. spathulata x hamata male flower! This is a first for my collection!




    This vine is crazy unwieldy.
