    Nepenthes Questions

    I took advantage of a huge Nepenthes sale and got the following. The purpose of this post is to ask if anyone has any pictures of these or any advice. I am by no means new to Neps but I always appreciate everyone's input. Thanks!

    Nepenthes vieillardii
    Nepenthes tomoriana
    Nepenthes mira
    Nepenthes glabrata
    Nepenthes maxima
    Nepenthes bellii
    Nepenthes hirsuta
    Nepenthes mirabilis var. echinostoma
    Nepenthes diatas
    N. bongso purple
    N. reinwardtiana
    N. petiolata
    N. madagascariensis from seed
    N. macfarlanei

    Maxima is nice, easy, and rewarding, I'm sure you'll have no trouble with it.
    That's the only one I have.

    Thank you. I am excited about maxima. I hava a maxima x TM and its great. I am under the impression that this plant is a large and fast grower and that will make up for some of my slower Neps.

    N. diatas, so I have heard, is a fussy and slow growing ultra-highlander that likes high humidity and doesn't acclimate well to different conditions.

    N. bellii is a Phillipine species that despises moving, prefers higher humidity, and is a viney species.



    Wow, that sounded dismal when I read it the second time. o.o

    LoL... I am lucky to have a pretty nice set up I built that I have now gotten to the point where shipped plants barely slow down at all. I am hoping they dont prove me wrong .

    From what I've seen from other TF'ers, N. glabrata seems like a viney weed when grown right.

    Edit: According the to Savage Garden, N. hirusta is a small growing scrambler and is perfect for warmer terrariums (intermediate/lowland)
