    Seeking neps for local victorian estate/greenhouse. Pictures! ^_^

    Hello everyone. I live in Salem Oregon. Here in town is a lovely Victorian estate complete with gardens. The gardens and house consist of 5 acres and are open to the public 365 days a year unless booked for a private event, which usually means a wedding. The place is owned by the city of Salem and maintained by volunteers. It's been that of way since the 70s. Anyways, part of the gardens is a large greenhouse filled with orchids, begonias, and many other tropicals, some towering over 15 feet tall. What I don't see is any Nepenthes. I recently decided to change that by donating my second largest Nepenthes. The greenhouse is part of the gardens and open to the public during certain hours.
    Today I met with the volunteer who maintains the greenhouse to drop off my plant, her name is Laurel. I told her I would try and find some more Nepenthes for the greenhouse, so that's what I'm doing.
    Here's a pic of entrance sign, the home, and the greenhouse.




    The greenhouse is heated in the winter, but only to 65F. In the summer the nights are cool and the days reach into the 80's.

    I'm wondering if any forum members would be interested in donating any highland nepenthes to the greenhouse. I could cover the cost of shipping. I'm looking for medium to large plants that would look good in a hanging basket, because the greenhouse has plenty of free space for those and pitchers look best when they dangle! I'm particularly interested in species like ventricosa, maxima, sanguinea, khasiana, basically anything hardy.
    Turns out the greenhouse already has one nep, which I've never seen before, a ventrata. It looks really healthy and even has a few basals.
    I'd like to get them a truncata pasian too. I could see it being the pride of the greenhouse when it matures!

    Wish I had any extra neps worth donating. I didn't realize deepwood had a greenhouse. I am going to have to check that out on my next trip to the valley.

    Yes, definitely check it out! It's right next to the bathrooms!
    I just bought a stenophylla for the greenhouse. I want them to have some nice neps with spots and stripes!

    I'm currently attempting to root a highland truncata cutting. If it succeeds I could send it to you. You owe us lots of interior photos though.

    I sent you an Email DJ57'

    @ carbonetc: Let me know how that truncata cutting works out. I didn't know you could take cuttings of truncata. I'll post interior photos sometime later.


    I'm done taking donations for the moment. As it stands the greenhouse will have 5 to 8 Nepenthes. = )
