    Well.... if you want to be technical. N. ventrata is not a registered cultivar so there are no ' ' or capitals. Simply N. ventrata
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    So just to be clear, no capitalization or italics? I want to write it correctly.

    So I walk into the greenhouse interested in my sphagnum. I noticed that there were a few strands growing very far up the side of the culture, and I thought to myself that it would be pointless to just keep the culture and never harvest a ton from it since its fully grown to its container. I pull out a bunch of strands and get ready to pick one of the containers up when I see something jump in the container over!

    I ran in the house to get the camera. Before he got accidentally squished with the lens (and yes, it ruined the camera)...



    Here's where my closeup started going too far...



    I was surprised he was still in there! Just kidding about the squishing part. The camera is okay, thank god!... And the frog is fine too. Makes me worry about when he's big... I don't want to have frogs screaming in my greenhouse. These guys are as loud as ten cows, seriously. It's the only frog I have ever heard around here. I don't want him to end up in a pitcher either, or attract snakes in or whatever. Maybe I should just take him out now? He must be finding a ton of bugs in there. Each pitcher on some of my plants has 100+ ants in it. I found a massive, white spider in one of my ventrata pitchers I was about to cut off, then decided to let it stay.

    Yeah, just a week or two out of the water. Still very small though. It takes maybe a month or more before they start putting on weight, and that's only if you heavily feed them, which I can't control for this dude. I wonder how long he's been in the sphagnum cultures... Now I'll probably check them out of curiosity every time I walk into the greenhouse lol.

    Id let him stay. . . your Nep nursery regularly posts pictures on facebook of frogs poking their heads out of Nepenthes pitchers, so I don't think it's a problem.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
