    Weekly follow-up of my new Neps

    Last update: 13/08/2013

    So I purchased some Nepenthes plants from Germany and decided it would be nice to keep a photographic record of these little buggers. I always do this to see if the plants are settling in nicely but decided to continue this after it was clear the plants were accustomed to their new surroundings.

    Anyway, the plants involved are Nepenthes bicalcarata, Nepenthes inermis, Nepenthes lowii, Nepenthes robcantleyi, Nepenthes singalana and Nepenthes villosa. The Nepenthes robcantleyi was bought later from Poland so it starts at week 8. The idea of this thread will be to add a new photo of every plant every week so that in a few years the entire growth process can be traced back with all it's ups and downs. Once the posts per species get too large I will limit it to a photo for every month. I'll also put every species in a new post to allow the expansion of the posts as the number of photographs grows.

    This is how the plants arrived:


    and how the N. robcantleyi arrived a few weeks later:

    All plants are potted in a mix of live spaghnum moss and perlite and seem to love it so far.

    A few pitchers:
    First pitcher on the N. robcantleyi opened!


    Starting to color up a bit

    The peristome, lid and inside have become a very dark burgundy (almost black) by now. I'll post a picture soon

    A small but very nice pitcher on the N. inermis



    Enjoy!
