    WOOT WOOT new Nepenthes just in! (New photos update)

    Sorry for the bad quality photos, I was going to school when I received the package and hastily repotted and photographed them.

    I love the fact that the seller included LFS and pots in the package. I also got a free bonus plant. Plus I used a 20% coupon code from Reddit. Which saved me $18. There is a drosera hamiltonii that i'll post in the other section.

    I'm temporarily trying them out in the same set up a Nepenthes. Ventrata has lived in and has quickly produced two new pitchers and a new basil emerged from the soil.

    Will monitor it for a few weeks and in the mean time gear up my 10 gallon fish tank just incase this set up doesn't work out.

    USDA zone 9B, enjoy guys, I had a giggly and fun time setting the up After all this is my first batch of Nepenthes.

    The set up ( they sit right under a tray of all my other Cp plants ).



    My N. Ventrata I got back in July 28th.


    Nepenthes maxima x spectabilis


    Nepenthes veitchii x platychila


    Nepenthes talangensis


    Nepenthes muluensis x lowii


    BONUS PLANT N. Ventricosa (thank you ^_^, esp since I don't have one)

    Pretty soon, you won't be able to stop yourself from collecting more plants.

    P.S. I didn't know there was an insectivorous plant thread on Reddit.

    you changed your avatar to a Magicarp.

    In regards to the subject at hand, that talangensis has some nice pitchers. Let's hope that lasts
    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

    Good luck with the N. talangensis and N. muluensis x lowii. Neither are known to be exceptionally easy, though in your climate, you actually have a chance. Trying to get at least an unheated greenhouse for an increase in your ability to control their conditions would be ideal, however.

    Thank you ...... you're right, I really don't want to count on the natural climate but I am graduating soon and want to move. Soooo..... a greenhouse will have to wait.

    Do you guys think a 10 gallon fish tank would do, if the current set up fails?
