    If you're going to grow Neps epiphytically, I recommend you use some kind of glue like the airplant glue at CA Carnivores. You should also start out with a small plant that will develop its own root anchors over time.

    I think they'll grow in a planted setting if in large containers or even the ground!

    These are a group of N. Gentle planted as a border against a wall in full sunlight.


    I find N. ampullarias and rafflesiana also grow better in beds than in small tight pots.

    I plan on breeding nepenthes some day. I need more females and unsexed seed grown plants are about 70-30 favoring more males. So I figured from ten plants I should get seven males and three females. So I get things in multiples of ten or twenty just to be safe. Besides the variation in seedlings are tremendous!
