    My 3 little Nepenthes

    I have very limited indoor growing room and most of my CPs are Sarracenia. However, I like the looks of Nepenthes and finally broke down and got 3 in two different trades last year. I got the 'Singapore Gardentech' late in Spring and I got the two Viking crosses (one with truncata, the other trichocarpa (?)) very late last year. Seems like they all are growing ok and I like the coloration.

    Whoops! This should have been posted in the Nepenthes forum (told you I am used to Sarracenia). Could a moderator move it?

    They seem to be doing rather well congrats! I picked up a couple of each of that cross too. Yours are further along. Good growing.

    N. viking x truncata is going to be interesting, and probably huge. Can't wait to see it mature!

    Me either wireman. I picked up two of each in a trade. So far so good. Couple required high humidity to settle in and they hated the cooler GH. Had to move some into the terrarium where it didn't get down to 50. they perked up nicely. Mirabilis has been my downfall lately. They hate the cooler temps I think. Turned the GH up to 54 low to see if it helps some.
