    Hi guys! I am sweating bullets here since a friend who shall remain nameless please kindly sent me 6 or 7 N. campulata, 2 N. albo-marginata and a N. argenti.

    One N. albo-marginata and one N. campanulata lacks roots.

    The N. campanulata are quarter sized rosettes. N. argenti is about the size of a 3 month VFT seedling. The N. albo-marginata are silver dollar sized.

    This was unlooked for and I am looking for advice as to how best establish these babies. All are currently in a domed salad bowl that has nice established and growing LFS, and is very clean. I assume this will be a good nursery, at least short term. The plants are on the lowermost shelf ogf my grow room, but it can still hit 80F there. Things wil be cooling down at night: already my outdoor highland Neps are pitchering again after just sitiing there all summer.

    It was amusing to see that with the packaging of the first boxes of plants I have been able to send out in ages, this package should arrive the same day. I guess I should just expect it, since it has happened so many times.

    So I will finally have my crack at N. argentii. It has one good leaf less than a cm long, and a root. I am not overly optimistic, but it is exciting to have this plant at last. I've done more with less!

    I hope to be able to offer the plants at some time in the future, so wish me success!

    i didn't even know you grew neps [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    all i can say is that's quite a nice gift and i'd treat the rootless neps as cuttings.

    congrats Tamlin. im pretty sure albomarginata is a lowland and is quite easy to grow from my understanding. i have yet to mess with Neps that small though. i would guess just keep humidity nice and high. my understanding is even most highlanders can take warmer temps when young.

    Tam,
    My N. campanulata, N. clipeata and N. macrophylla all arrived rootless. I just cut off the dried portion and got them each in pots of LFS and put em where they belong (climate wise) and now they're all doing just fine, no losses.

    Good luck! Especially with the argentii!

    well the camp and the albo are lowlands so put them in lowland conditions and treat them like cuttings...as everyone else said [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] thats some gift you got [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] The plants that have roots should be in high humidity since they're so small. IME small plants like that can dry out really fast....

    Thanks for the input! I do failrly well with Nepenthes considering my conditions. I didn't realize that N. campanulata was a lowlander and the breakdown really helps. I will do my homework tonight now that I am a little more relaxed.

    no problem, I hope everything turns out great....

    Witht that many camps you should do like a 20 gallon species only display tank... that would ROCK!!!!!
