    I have (spathulata x campanulata) x ventricosa "red" seedlings, though they are slow growers and it will be a while before we see how they turn out.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I am surprised there are not more recent photos in here considering the influx of BE camps [N. campanulata] lately. I really need to stop procrastinating and just buy one lol.

    I have been trying some alternative substrates for rooting N. campanulata cuttings. Peat, perlite and vermiculite mix (1:1:1) seemed to work well. The cutting was just beginning to root in water when planted. It grew nicely and had a good root system in a month. Then I sent off the plant so couldn't test it further.




    Recently I tried 100% cocopeat and initial results are good. I planted three cuttings, two in cocopeat, one in milled sphagnum for comparison.


    I find phagnum is always reliable for me.


    With cocopeat, the roots can't be seen from below. But unlike sphagnum, cocopeat washes off very easily. Root system looks comparable so far.


    I also tried fertilizing through the roots. I waited till the sphagnum and cocopeat were almost dry, then saturated the substrates with a 20-20-20 soluble fertilizer (Hyponex) at 0.5 g/L (i.e. 100 ppm N). After a couple weeks the root tips are still alive and growing, which is promising.

    And my latest acquisition, a pigmented male clone of N. campanulata, supposedly with thick peristome when mature. It's a keen flowerer, blooming for the second time now even when still tiny.


    I'm hoping It'll turn out half as nice as the pigmented male clone with thick peristome that EP uses in their breeding. (http://www.exoticaplants.com.au/admi.../big_campb.jpg - link from cpphotofinder)

    And here it is with an all-green female clone from BE.

    Breeding pair of campanulata (sorry, can't recall if I posted this already).

    N. campanulata

    I would absolutely love to have a breeding pair of a species like that, nepenthes produce so many seeds.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Please please make species seed of campanulata in cultivation. We have enough hybrids. It would be awesome to have more diverse clones of amazing species like these.
