    I am a first time CP grower and I ordered two plant that I heard were easier to grow than others. I origanaly ordered Nepenthes sanguinea and Nepenthes Ventricosa. However, The store was out of N. Ventricosa and offered to ship me what I believe is N. Ovata but I could not understand what the store owner said. Anyway I accepted his offer and the plants ship next monday 5/17/04. They come potted an I NEED advice on how to Grow them. Thanks!

    lots of humidity and lots of light is GENERALLY the important factors with Neps, but depending on species, temperature becomes a factor too. i dont have either of those species so someone else will have to give specifics on them. i have a half dozen hybrids which are generally easier to grow and a couple of lowland species which like lots of warmth, humidity and light. good luck, if you have any success with them they tend to become addicting.

    Oh, terrak,

    What are your growing conditions? That would help us figure out what would be good for you, but rattler made a good point about hybrids.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Are we Nep freaks? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Sorry man, I don't know anything about those 2. First thing is we need to know what can you provide. Since several people here could tell you all day long what you COULD do but cost will be a large factor as well.

    warm temps ?
    high humidity?
    cool nights or warm nights?
    do you have a greenhouse?
    will you have a chamber?
    will it be a windowsill thing?
    Very importantly get comfortable with buying RO water or some kind of mineral-less water OR a home unit [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Edit: Just noticed this site doesn't give cultivation info on either species you mentioned. Sorry! But if you're going to get into neps, you should bookmark this page anyhow.
