    Hello, all.

    What kind of Neps have you grown, or seen successfully grown, as houseplants?

    I have seen and heard, N.Ventrata, N.Khasiana, N.Truncata, N.Merrilliana, N. Rafflesiana all growing as house plants. Not growing to thier best but it is possible!

    It's not difficult just...slow. The pitchers (when formed in household conditions) are short lived because they are so thin, but Merrilliana's leaves take the abuse from thier thick cellulose layer and it will grow fine but may not pitcher that much.

    I got 2 raffelsiana from here that I attempted to grow as a houseplant. One of them couldn't handle it so I put it in the terrarium. The other one seems to be doing ok, but growing VERY slowly. As long as the tip doesn't turn black, I'll continue to grow it in my very cold room [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] Many local growers have told me that they grow N. maxima outdoors, now that's amazing [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I will attempt this when it gets warmer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
