    Nepenthes singalana

    Anyone grow this species? I'm thinking of getting one and I hear it's really easy to grow. What kind of humidity can it take?

    I'm looking at buying this species because it looks cooler than the common Nepenthes sanguinea and Nepenthes ventricosa that are starter plants.

    I just got one recently as well. Of all the new plants in the shipment, I'd say the Nepenthes singalana had the least amount of set back and is looking very healthy and happy...it would make a nice addition to your collection.

    Well, my Nepenthes ventricosa thrived growing under my lamp in my bedroom. Would Nepenthes singalana thrive in a similar condition?

    *Raises hand*

    Nepenthes singalana is a bit slow for me, but its pitchers are well worth the wait. Not sure about the whole humidity thing, though.

    Um. Just because Nepenthes ventricosa is a technically a highlander, doesn't mean ALL highlanders can live in the same conditions. :P Do you have any terrariums or anything for Nepenthes, or is a lamp the only thing you have?

    if you want a "cooler" beginner plant get some wicked hybrids! or a big/colorful from of Nepenthes maxima, Nepenthes alata, or a dark from of a Nepenthes sanguinea. Most LLs are easy if they are kept hot...

    Nepenthes singalana is a spectacular highlander. I definitely want to get one these days. Definitely a better choice than a Nepenthes ventricosa. Although...my suggestion: Get a hygrometer/thermometer from pet store (Should be 5-10$ for the analog dials). Get a read on humidity, temps at prospective locations. That way u can first get a good idea without getting disheartened once u get the plant and it doesn't do well.

    Either way if you are into CP cultivation....u are going to need those tools anyway. So even if you change ur mind to anther Nepenthes... they will be useful to have.

    Regarding a makeshift chamber... consideirng u will probably get a pretty small plant.....just get yourself a 5-10$ 2.5 or 5 gallon aquarium. I used to grow VFTs, sundews etc etc in there for a long time. Then you can turn it on the side and have a nice little Nepenthes chamber at a very reasonable price.
