I received a Nepenthes ventricosa (sp?) from a New England grower to replace a sarracenia he had run out of.
I really like this plant and am thinking it would be nice to have a few since they grow year-round rather than needing to be dormant for the winter.
I am reading very confusing information from my several books on the subject. Is this a lowland or a very adaptable highland nepenthes?
Which ones would do best in a terrarium (have to keep them undercover or my pet birds will gobble them down as a nice snack. PLEASE--my birds come first, so no wisecracks about this requirement?
I have a 20 gallon long aquarium that could be used. Can't decide if it should sit with the opening at the top (with reptile screen over it) or on its side with opening from the front.
I'm gathering that these plants don't need to sit in water perpetually.
Any advice? I've killed several of these and don't want to go that rather expensive learning route again.
Am thinking of N. Sanguina for one.
