I have been growing nepenthes for just under three years and many plants have grown well for me. *Living in Hawaii with warm year around climates and good lighting, humidity and water, I have been successful in growing a wide range of species and hybrids. *I base this success on fertilizing.
Here is an example of a cutting recently received in the mail of N. *veitchii x albomarginata. *The plant received lacked any pitchers or even evidence of a pitcher upon arrival. *At about five months after receiving the cutting, it has produced a pitcher. *Please see photo. *
Other examples include this: thorelii (d) x Trusmadiensis seedling with many pitchers.
I have also noticed that many plants have also flowered quickly, and while this may not always be the desired goal, for breeding them allows for quick sex recognition and notation.
N. spectabilis x veitchii
and Red Leopard
And now, seedlings start to show their color potential at an earlier age. *This is N. ventricosa x (dubia x singalana) *EP cross. *Small seedlings.
