    Nepenthes Masagascariensis

    I was thinking about trying to grow this cool nep in the near future but before I got it I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with it.

    Thanks!

    I had some once. Didn't do anything so I gave them away.

    Not very popular for some reason.

    I am on my second one. It is also not doing so good. I am looking forward to any advice you get here.

    I have about 4 of these guys, grown from seeds from the ICPS seedbank.

    They are in the basement under lights with my other highlanders. They are very slow growing, and seem to just struggle along for me. I can't remember for sure, but I think they are in straight LFS, or mostly LFS with a little of the "Deluxe Mix" from The Savage Garden Book. My largest trap is about 1 inch tall. Due to lack of space, one of the plants is not in a terrarium - it has no pitchers at the moment.

    Occasionally I'l the feed the plants that do have pitchers a kind of Beta fishfood called BetaBioGold. Tiny round spheres - about the only thing that will fit in the traps.

    I hope this info helps.

    N. madagascariensis is supposed to be a lowland. I've tried it in highland and lowland conditions and it doesn't really "do" anything, so i've crossed it off my list for good. Can't keep it alive either.
