    Holy variegation batman! That may be the most impressive variegated Nepenthes I've ever seen.

    That I guess is a true epiphyte.... damn. very nice.

    But you can kind of cheat (although plants start off like this in the wild too.... not this species though) and pretty much make a pocket of sphagnum on a branch and grow a nepenthes on it.

    Is that a young N. campanulata? I always thought that they couldn't grow well without limestone...

    I guess maybe for long term? I had the campanulata for almost 4y and in that time...it did ok...formed many basals...but then went downhill. Perhaps if I added the limestone, it would have done better.

    Thanks. Unfortunately it requires high upkeep too. It dried out and everything died when I had to go away due to a family emergency.

    Limestone with Campanulata? What exactly is enough? A little bit in the soil or largish part of the soil limestone sand etc?
    Looking for N. Campanulata hybrids. Also would like to grow some nepenthes from seed. Growlist/pic thread: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-Pete-s-plants
