    Talking New Nep Hanging pot.

    Hey Guys! Today I repotted my N. Ventricosa x Spathulata into a much bigger hanging pot.







    I'm hoping it will cascade down and send up a basal or two to fill up some of the space in the pot, but I think I want to get another nep on the other side. I need a suggestion for a nepenthes that would be 1. a moderate to fast grower 2. not to expensive 3. would look amazing. Got anything? let me know. Thanks!!!!

    N. ventrata (ventricosa x alata) is extremely fast... In one year, it vined over 3 feet for me on one vine and two feet on a couple of others, plus it has shot up a ton of basals. You can usually find them in hanging baskets at Home Depot (when they get them in, some Home Depots don't get them) depending on your location.

    What about red leopard. Its a fast grower and looks nice. Nasals easily. My main plant has a 6 foot vine and multiple nasals. I have some rooted cuttings.

    Pm if interested

    In use those same pots too with some.

    I put six 3/4 inch holes in the bottom for drainage. Just FYI. :-)
