    N. undulatifolia

    I was wondering if anyone is growing this interesting nepenthes? I recently acquired a small seedling and as of now am just growing it in typical HL conditions and it seems fine. But I was wondering if anyone has observed any special needs? there doesn't appear to be a whole lot of information on these.

    would really like to hear from others growing this species.

    Thanks!

    Lucky you! I don't believe this species is in widespread cultivation. You might want to try some of the growers in Europe.

    Its very similar to Nepenthes hamata in terms of culture requirements. It is also fairly fast growing, I got mine as a 3" diameter basal a little over a year ago and its starting to vine now. It seems to like a loose sphagnum mix and lower light with strictly highland temperatures. Out of curiosity, do you have any photos of your plant?

    great photo! and thank you for the info, its very much appreciated. That good to hear its culture requirements are similar to hamatas, incidentally I placed mine next to my hamatas.

    Has yours started to show the wavy laminar margins yet?


    Here are two photos of the plant. Still very small. But I'm glad to hear they're fast growing

    Nice, your plant looks like mine did when I got it. You can see the wavy lamina on the leaf behind the pitcher in the photo. Definitely wants high humidity but make sure the sphagnum is only moist and not wet, I think this plant would rot easily if the sphagnum isn't oxygenated enough. You might want to stick it in a net pot.

    I'll keep that in mind about the rot potential. I'll transfer it to a small net pot, I have to repot some other plants anyways I'll just add this little guy to the list. I was wondering if that wavy leafed plant in the background was your undulatifolia but wasn't sure, it looks great! I fertilize my hamatas (and most of my plants) with maxsea, do you do anything similar to your undulatifolia?

    I just love the pitchers proportions on yours, as well as the huge operculum.

    Yeah we occasionally fertilize with urea free fertilizers and coffee.

    I really appreciate the info you've given me. Do you have any picture of the whole plant?


    Also anyone else growing one?
