    On the theme of outdoor neps...

    Here are the only two that grow outdoors well for me, and both are aristolochioides hybrids. These are outdoors all year round on my deck. They've lived through freezes and 100 degree heatwaves. I water them with a hose.

    First is N. ventricosa x aristolochioides, the most bulletproof nepenthes ever. I've had this on the deck for over 3 years now.


    It's constantly flowering, but I think it's too cold overall to bake good seeds, so I've stopped trying.


    it's around this time the pitchers start growing after a slow winter. Here are a few:


    The other one that's decided it likes it out there is N. truncata x aristolochioides. This was dying on me in the grow room, and I put it out here to die, basically. that was 2 years ago. For whatever reason, it's happy now.

    Wow! I've tried growing Neps outdoors, but with less that satisfactory results... mainly because of frost. That ventricosa x aristolochioides is a monster!

    Too cold to bake seeds, eh? I'd think so, considering you need heat to bake seeds.

    You Wouldn't Want To Take a Cutting From That Vent x Aristolochioides
    Would You?

    Do you have any advice for growing outdoors in the bay area? I don't have any experience other than leaving my N. Alata's outside hung from a tree. Hose water eh? I'm definitely going to start doing that based on what I've been reading from people in my area.
