    N. ampullaria was one of the plants that got me hooked on wanting to grow rare plants when I read a 60's National Geographic on Malaysian Neps. There was a 2 page spread of one plant growing in leaf litter. I still can see the photo now more clearly than is healthy!

    The process sounds hopeful, and I look forward to recreating that photo in real life. I will male a dedicated terrarium for both Dustin's plant and this newbie so that they have lots of space. Maybe I can't collect all the Neps I yearn to, but I can try to grow one species really well. That's the plan.

    Are there other forms other than the red, spotted, and all green?

    Tony,

    Thanks for the photo's. I'd say that "William's Red" has a fine and fateful name! Time to go a huntin' I think.

    Good luck with rooting it, Tamlin. I always treat my cuttings with liquid rooting hormone. I use dip n' grow currently, and it seems to work well. I certainly have a better strike rate with the hormone than without.
    no no no thats all wrong send it to:

    WHat if I just send one of every CP species to all you kids?
    Where would you keep them all, and how would you know how to grow them?

    Patience, grasshopper!

    Missed out on this thread earlier.

    Did the cutting make it Tamlin? N. ampullaria are generally not difficult to root but if you"re trying it with a red for the first time then it might be an expensive experiment.

    I agree that the original Cantley's red is more temperamental, I don't know why. Probably takes after me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Nice display of color forms there Tony. Out of our huge batch of seed-grown items we had a couple of others. There's a hot-lips that forgot to apply her lipstick properly and should perhaps be called "pink lips". There's also this guy adapted to catch snakes:



    and the bat-catching

    Nice pics Rob.

    Funky pitchers you got there hehe. Get some cuttings going!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] I am sure I can wedge in at least one more pot into my lowland chamber!
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
