    Ok,

    can you beat this...

    I have...
    The flypaper Nepenthes !!!
    It kills its prey by drowning it in nectar on the peristom :-)

    My N. ventricosa x inermis growing at a windowsill without spraying or doing anything special :

    "sticky Nepenthes" :


    "nectaries! :


    I like this hybrid very much, because it's beautiful and can be grown under the most basic conditions.

    Hi !!
    Very beautiful plant Joachim, all plants of your collection are perfect.
    I have 2 questions:
    -The right name is Nepenthes macrophylla or Nepenthes edwardsiana ssp. macrophylla ?
    -At your growing conditions which plant is faster between Nepenthes rajah and Nepenthes macrophylla ?

    Kind regards

    rajah

    Hi,

    Nepenthes macrophylla was first described as N. edwardsiana ssp. macrophylla by Johannes Marabini, but it was rised to species rank later.
    Now it is called Nepenthes macrophylla.
