    First Nepenthes

    Oh well I had decided that since everyone else loves Neps that I wasn't going to get one. It didn't work out that way. Here is my first and hopefully only Nep. I don't need to get involved with any more different kinds of plants.







    So is this really an alata? It is currently on top of my 180 Gallon freshwater Fish Tank in between two T5 HO fixtures and under 3 CFL daylight track lights. It is sitting in an empty KFC Famous Bowl. I plan on watering it whenever it seems less than damp. Are these conditions going to work?

    It's actually N.ventrata..a hybrid between alata and ventricosa, and a very easy to grow hybrid. Your conditions should be to it's liking.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Congratulations on your first Nepenthes! N. x ventrata is a very easy hybrid to grow. It sounds like you're definitely on the right track.

    Don't repot it. It looks happy and healthy already and besides, why would you want to mess with a good thing? Most plants (even those that aren't carnivorous) hate being repotted and/or moved to a different location.

    Yeah that was my inclination. I will just see how it does for the time being.
