    Dark pitcher pics

    Just a few pics of neps with dark pitchers.


    N. densiflora x truncata growing in a south window.


    N. muluensis x lowii growing in a tank under lights.

    VFT "Big Mouth" added just for fun. This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago.

    Oooh, you have one of those nice N.densiflora x truncata 'King of Spades' too. How do the leaves look? The shape on mine is just downright gorgeous! I love the pitchers

    The leaves are dark green and fleshy, and they show the influence of the N. truncata parent by a slight truncation. Other than that there's nothing special about them.

    Thanks for the complement. I think I would highly recommend this hybrid for beginners. It seems to be about the easiest thing in the world to grow, and it stays relatively small.

    You won't be sorry, swords. I've had this plant for a number of years, and it's one of the best neps I ever bought. It has never been transplanted out of its teeny pot, and I never have to water it because it rooted itself in the moss and water underneath. The only thing I do is put a single ice bottle in the tank section at night just for the heck of it, but I don't think that's even really necessary. I do drop in some Zoo Med mini crickets once in a while. I've cut it back only once, and it sprouted multiple nodes that kept going. That's why there is a difference in the pitcher sizes. The smaller ones are from secondary stems that haven't fully matured.

    Pretty high praise, Dexthenes–thanks for the complement!

    What kind of soil mix have you got going on there? Looks like just charcoal, perlite and sand?

    I'm just getting back into Neps after a few years off and I'm surprised by all the new species/hybrids available and also, the variable & chunky mixes people are using now. Back in the day LFS and Orchid bark were pretty much the beginning and the end of the whole thing.
