    Nepenthes fusca

    I wanted to post my nepenthes fusca for POM... but I think there may be no POM on the other forum this month so I thought I would post here instead.

    This is one of two of my 'closet grown' / seed grown Nepenthes fusca plants. This plant is 3-4ft tall. The plant in the background is a pretty Rhododendron indigenous to Mt. Klabat, Mt. Rantemario, and Mt. Gambuta in Sulawesi, Indonesia.

    Woah.....That is great, and having other plants native to where the neps grow is even better....I'd love to find some plants native to the sumatran highlands....but I have no idea where to start.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I can tell you some Rhododendronsthat are native to Sumatra:

    R. adinophyllum
    R. rarilepidotum
    R. retusum
    R. x sumatranum
    R. aequabile


    I am sure there are a dozen more. I tried to grow ones that are both native to the mountains/areas were nepenthes grow and also found at the same elevation. I am growing some alpine Rhododendrons from Mt. Kinabalu and some others from Northern Borneo right now.

    Wow, nice!

    Looks like I have some research to do.
