    Windowsill Nepenthes . . .

    Here is a quick shot from this morning of a section of a south-facing windowsill and part of my pest management plan. On the left is an adult Nepenthes ventricosa "Black Peristome" (which flowered earlier and was pruned back) and Nepenthes ventricosa x bongso. To think that these plants were once limited to greenhouses and strict climate control.

    The second shot is that of Nepenthes truncata (Pasian Highland) and a Heliamphora heterodoxa x minor can be seen in the background . . .

    By the end of the season those pitchers are just filled with insects . . .

    The truncata is amazing. Does the pitcher stay green or does it get more color in the sun?

    In response to Mr Truncata's question, the N. truncata gets suffused with colour and more mottled as the pitcher further ages. It is still quite young and the pitchers are about 26 cm (10.5") in length . . .


    Thanks for all of the kind comments from everyone . . .

    Out of curiosity, what are you doing for lighting during the 6 months of less than 12 hours of of photoperiod?
