    What are some Nepenthes you just cant seem to get right?

    Amusingly, my Sanguinea and Spectibilis aren't working for me. Probably damaged roots on shipping. But something that is healthy and isn't pitchering is N. Talangensis that I got a couple weeks ago. I think high light, low nights, and a feeding regimen will force it to give itself to me

    I also could not get N. Gracilis to grow right because I couldn't manage it! The damn thing just would NOT stop growing even in winter and something that grows that fast goes thru a lot of water as well.

    Nepenthes Ampullaria. I've ordered them three times, and they always go into suspended animation when they arrive and then slowly rot away. All other Neps grow just fine.

    At the outset, both Nepenthes jacquelineae and N. villosa were a bit of a pain in the ****, probably because the two were about the size of a dime -- if not smaller -- when I received them; and I spent a good deal of time just ensuring that the sphagnum moss didn't overgrow them.

    I truly thought they were both toast . . .

    Have you guys tried fertilizing your plants that didn't grow? My Sanguinea has been sending out useless leaves for like a year and started producing some decent ones after a hit of MaxSea.

    Never convince yourself to go with a new nursery if the old one is doing just fine for you. This is the saddest little Sang that I've seen and I get so jealous looking at everybody elses =/
